Political Promises

Take political promises with a large grain of salt. Look how few of them are ever delivered. Instead look who pays the bills for a candidate. The only thing you can be sure of is that if he is elected, he will first and foremost look after the interests of those contributors. If you do not belong to his contributing constituency, he will most probably ignore or even sacrifice your interests. The most important thing to know about a candidate is whom he is taking money from, including the PAC (Political Action Committee) advertising. As Mark Twain observed We have the best government that money can buy.
