Simply hungry for power Promising YOU can make a difference You provide your manifesto Wear your colours with bravado Smile and kiss babies Shake hands with the voters Soothing sugar coated words But they are shallow veiled lies Promise the earth….

Right on, Jan! Best to you in the contest. Thanks for reading "Touchez". It came to mind this morning while at my café having my coffee and pastry. Wrote the first draft on my napkin. / M

There is only one party in the US, the Property Party. It has two right wings,Republican and Democrat. Republicans are a bit stupider, more rigid, more doctrinaire in their laissez-faire, than the Democrats, who are cuter, prettier, a bit more corrupt—until recently and more willing than the Republicans to make small adjustments when the poor, the black, the anti-imperialists get out of hand but essentially there is no difference between the two parties."

It works the same way here Jan. I wish there was a better way. Most are in it for the money and power not for the good of the constituents
