Since our Founders framed this Republic, the notion of patriot citizens serving honorably and briefly, with rare exceptions, has diminished with the passage of time. There’s been a load of self serving. Unfortunately, the constituency being served is too often large donors, money bundlers, political strategist, and a myriad of “invisible hands.” Much like the wind, we don’t see it, but we surely feel it. A gentle breeze has turned into a raging destructive force as voters once again fail to understand the precarious nature of campaigns and political outcomes. “Draining the swamp” has been easier to say than to carry it out. Those creatures aren’t easily eradicated anywhere. Whether it’s D.C. or Cheyenne.
