Americans during the 18th Century served in public office to fulfill their patriotic duty. Today our elected officials are becoming more and more wealthy as they destroy the values and principles of our nation. Many of them are participating in the outsourcing of America’s products and services while collecting their salaries from the people they pretend to represent. It is becoming more apparent that our elected officials are investing in foreign nations and offshore ventures.
