Today Lincoln’s “of the people, by the people, for the people” would be “of the politician, by the politician, for the politician.”
Take notice that the word politician has three “I’s” in it.
We, the people Lincoln was speaking of, only have the chance to vote for people who have the backing, influence and money from special interests groups, all expecting something in return. We now have a government of puppets, controlled by money and greed.
We, the people cannot change term limits by law. We can inform the politicians how we feel about their ‘Good Ole Boy’ policies. At each primary election vote against the non-productive incumbents.
