The bell arrests

The justice that was taken place when the City Officials in Bell, California were arrested for the embezzlement of residents’ public funds. Became an outcome that signified a definitive approach by controlling the corrupted politicians in office.

This is only one example of how far our so-called political leaders are willing to do by using their power for greed instead of good.

It has been brought into our awareness of how politicians seem to disappoint citizens of the United States with promises of prosperity. But it turns out, that the truth behind it all, those promises were just for you to vote them into office.

From President George Bush and George W. Bush, setting the regime as father and son, made drastic, unethical decisions that effected the United States into spending

trillions of dollars.

The reason; the acts of war, weapons, and countless things that have only put our entire nation into debt.

Governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, is another politician who went into office exclaiming promises throughout his whole time in candidacy, stating that he was going to bring California out of its social crisis.

All what Schwarzenegger did was waste away public funds from Californian’s income, that had consequences of employment cuts in law enforcement, school teachers and school funds, as well hospital staff members.

Politicians such as Bush and Schwarzenegger became leaders to maintain their image in the media in order to establish a power that exploits the people, by getting their vote to count on them to change the economy for the better.

Just like former President Bush Senior and W. Bush, along with California’s Governor, Schwarzenegger. Bell’s eight City Officials took the advantage to follow the same path of lies, by giving themselves fat checks from residents’ funds.

Its a despicable account of how Bell’s City Councilors, were able to inflate their paychecks with tax money, from a city that is in 16% percentage of poverty, while the others make the most salary of $30,000 a year.

This is a serious case of the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer.

Where is the line drawn that politicians can’t cross?

There must be limits and standards of the boundaries that city officials, congressmen and politicians cannot pass. Its a line that people, who are citizens, effected by the corrupted agenda of broken promises and lies, must follow through with the unity for equality.

Citizens in the United States and other parts of the world, who actually work to make a difference in their families and personal growth, need to know the antics that go beyond the doors of politicians.

It is a demeanor that we should all adapt by uniting on the common struggle that we share with our fellow citizens. Communicating within our city and voting on propositions that residents will agree on, is a better way to handle social issues, that affect our community.

The problem goes within how people of all race, gender, working class, rich or poor, need to unite with one another. We need to stop letting politicians that we can never truthfully trust, take over every single problem that we face in this world.

Learning how to evolve and grow in humanity is part of the nature that we must abide by in order to know how to handle our own problems that start in our cities.

The fraudulent that occurred in Bell, California, hopefully opened the minds of people in many cities and states, to seriously think about the issues that go beyond just the problems of tax money being stolen by politicians.

Overlook a politician’s popularity that lands with a large audience. It doesn’t matter if the candidate spends large quantities of money for advertising their campaign. They need to prove that they will actually do greatness.
