um, lwllms, I think you mis-labeled you post, did you mean to say, “The American People are just out of touch”?

Our elected officials didn’t get there by themselves. If they are there we must like them, we put them there.

What is the average voter turn out in the United States? Now compare that to how many people voted on American Idol, or how many people update their Facebook account daily, or how many people spend more time researching their fantasy football league than learning about health care or deficit spending.

Sounds like the US political officials are doing just what they were put in place to do, run amok and take care of special interests. Just the way we like it, apparently.
