Letter: Farmers need water

It never ceases to amaze me that many in politics — from Washington, D.C. down to our small towns — are totally misinformed and void of any common sense concerning real issues in real life, and think money will buy it all.

They’re particularly non-caring about he realities of farming and working for a living versus sitting in a chair and attending a few meetings in order to get their “pay.” In fact, they’ll all be getting a raise while the working class will get taxed.

More money for their pork and pet projects, which is spending our money on their ideologies and buddies (like the EPA).

What would happen we didn’t pay the politicians until they did what they were supposed to do and quit wasting our hard-earned money?

Any smart person knows that you don’t reward bad behavior with more!

We need to make our politicians follow the rules that they make us follow. But somehow these arrogant politicians keep getting elected and then promote their own agendas and the wealth with their buddies.

So, to all the Donnie Dustins out there, it’s time to get your reality check and stop giving advice on things you know nothing about. And by the way, stop sending our water to other states! We need it here in Colorado for our own farmers. You like to eat don’t you?
