Am I Missing Something ?

When you vote for an incumbent, you are perpetuating our government as it is now. Nothing will change. These three, short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our current government and cultural environment:

1.) We are advised NOT to judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works.

In addition, here is another one worth considering. 
2.) Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. Why do we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money? What is interesting is the first group "worked for" their money, but the second did not.

Think about it..... Last but not least:
3.) Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are not stopping payments to illegal aliens such as monthly payments for each child, money for housing, food stamps, free education including college and also the right to vote?

Am I the only one missing something?

Los Angeles - A throbing Metropolis

The Los Angeles we know and love is full of rich diversity and limitless opportunity, and it is not a thing of the past. The message of my campaign is about working together restoring trust and integrity, and to rebuild the City of Los Angeles we love by restoring a robust economy, creating jobs, fiscal responsibility and ending failed government policies, and this is the overwhelmingly positive message of our message to the people of Los Angeles. As a valued supporter of my campaign, I wanted to make sure that you had the opportunity to see my platform. 
This statement and goal is about inspiring confidence in the people of Los Angeles that with our collective values, faith, and strength we can overcome the incredible adversity we face as a city in these hard economic times.
YJ Draiman for Mayor of Los Angeles 2017

YJ Draiman for Mayor - proposes a Los Angeles City government for the people by the people, it is long overdue to listen and address the concerns of the people of Los Angeles. Implement fiscal responsibility; restore trust and integrity in our government. This starts from the Mayor on down to the rest of government officials.
We must stop wasting revenues and resources, implement efficiency and productivity. These are hard economic times; in order for us to survive, we must take immediate action and implement the necessary actions to lessen the impact.
This starts at the top – “Lead by example”, leadership starts the pattern and the rest will follow.

Education will rebuild Los Angeles economic sustainability
I have three words to say to you. EDUCATION... EDUCATION... EDUCATION... You want to get ahead in life, you must have education. You want to compete in today’s economy you must have education. You want to provide for you family you must have education.
