A friend announced at lunch the other day that she had stopped watching television news for the time being. She said she was so disgusted with the way political leaders were ignoring the people’s will that it made her stomach queasy when she got to the dinner table. She said it was understandable why people stopped going to the polls to vote, because the two parties could obviously care less.
