The People Politico Mission

Our mission in politics is to add a voice of reason to the politico middle ground in America. Most people in America are somewhere in the middle of the political spectrum. Unfortunately our voices are getting drowned out by the extremist fringes of the right and left wings of our politico environment. #PeoplePolitico

  • And our tax dollars fund all of this. We the people who pay taxes are the ones that keep government running.

    Have a terrific day. :)

    This is not a list of things that the government does for us but yet it is a list of things that the government control. There is a difference.

    • It really could be both. These are the things the government does, what you think of these things is the difference I think you are pointing out. That, is much more up for interpretation and opinion.
