Imagine what could be done with money spent on politics

To the Editor:

It will be so nice when Nov. 6  is finally here and all the ads in the newspapers and television will stop.  The cost of all the ads must be astronomical.

With the financial problems facing the United States  today, it is not logical why so much money is spent on campaigning. 

If all the candidates in the U.S. would pool all their funds, imagine how many people that could feed, clothe  or house.  Unfortunately, our world doesn’t work like that anymore.   Wouldn’t it be wonderful if it did? 

Hopefully, the newly elected politicans  will work for the good of the people instead for the parties and themselves.  Wouldn’t that be a refreshing concept? 

Perhaps one day, the United States will once again be what it used to be.  Pity the generations coming up, because they have a huge debt to take care of. 

God Bless America!
