I do think all politicians try to pretend they do more than they actually accomplish. And I do think they try to cover up the future economic catastrophe coming down the road. I had hoped that President Trump would find a way to cut spending but alas too many people are more concerned about their pork and not concerned about the debt left to future generations. And this current crop of presidential candidates are promising even more, instead of a chicken in every pot, they are promising a college education for everyone and free medical care. Much more money than a barnyard of chickens.
