The Crisis of Confidence
There is a crisis of confidence in America’s political leadership, from the smallest municipality all the way to Washington DC. At bottom, this crisis means that trust between elected representatives and their constituency has almost completely broken down. Being from Illinois, where government has taken on the character of predator and the people its prey, I see this breakdown first hand. I happen to live in a county with one of the highest unemployment rates in the state, and while people suffer for lack of jobs, their so-called representatives continue to demand more and more of their income.
