Some People Just Have A Way With Words ... Including Lucifer

And 435 Congressmen, less about 5, plus one sitting President and one female who is fighting for his chair.

Common Sense Commentary: About every four years since Lucifer announced his campaign for God's office, politicians have pledged to the gullible voters, vowed upon their mother's grave and sworn upon the Bible that they would fulfill their campaign promises. As with April Fool's Jokes, there have been maybe ten or twelve who kept their word. So now the nation is so fouled up that anybody who wants the job of President either has a death wish, a narcissistic ego, a dictator's lust or ... maybe even a patriot's heart. RB

Here are a few notable confirmations of my exaggerated observation.
