Where have all the good candidates gone?

To borrow from Pete Seegar…. Hope he doesn't mind my change of words..
where have all the candidates gone.. (to the tune of where have all the flowers gone)

Where have all the good candidates gone?
Long time passing
Where have all the good candidates gone?
Long time ago
Where have all the good candidates gone?
Republicans and the Democrats have picked them, 
every one,
And we are stuck with them…
When will we ever learn?
When will we ever learn?
I live in a flaming red state… where a Republican
has never met a Republican they didn't like..  That 
they vote them in, no matter how bad they are. 
Years ago, each one had some pretty great guys 
who ran and won. Those who cared about this country 
first and foremost.  Yes, they all were put down at 
the time they were in office… some even got shot… 
But they were good men.. who were more concern 
with protecting our country and its 
people. And not the party first and foremost.  
The Lincoln’s, Roosevelts’s, Kennedy’s, Truman 
and such. 
Now days, all we have is bumbling clowns… 
who are so far up the parties tail end, that they have 
forgotten that you and I are here, trying to make it 
in our own little world.  
We have congress people who have never really 
had a job. They have been in congress for 20 to 30 
years.  Some of them never have filled their cars up
 with gas… nor bought groceries.  Have accountants 
who do their paper work for them.. pay their bills 
for them. They don’t have a clue how to pinch a
 penny… give up one thing because they have other 
things that are priority.They say trillion like we say twenty.  
How can they relate to our problems? Our lives and 
what we can do and can’t do, other than them making 
laws against most of it.  And we have no control over 
them.. They don’t even have the decency to even 
mention cutting their wages, or even more important, 
their benefits.

They pass a law on healthcare that it 
is mandatory that each American HAS to
have, yet they exclude themselves. What is with that.. 
maybe they aren't Americans. They talk about how 
the elderly have to tighten up their budgets… 
schools have to do theirs.. and the military has to 
tighten up theirs.. Police, fire departments, hospitals, 
nursing homes… but why, oh 
why, is there never even a mention of their monies? 

When will we ever learn?
When will we ever learn?
