Nope. Not surprised by this at all:
Granted, the roads of America are probably safer because of it. But . . . as I posted on my Twitter feed, @DentzelDomain: It’s hard for a person to care about gas prices when the person doesn’t drive. And she wants to be our next President (c’mon, we know she’s gonna run).
This is an example of a bigger problem in the USA. Hillary Clinton isn’t the only politician whose guilty of being out of touch. Lots of Republican politicians can be put in the same category. And my belief is people can’t adequately lead if they don’t know what it’s like to be the average citizen.
Driving would definitely fall into the sector of being an experience of the common person.
In fact, it could be the problems we have in the USA come from the fact that D.C. is increasingly disconnected from the rest of the country–even the liberal parts. I think a lot of that is done on purpose because many of our leaders look down on us. But, I think a lot of the disconnect comes naturally–the truth is D.C. is a different place, no matter if politicians drive their own cars or not. The people who “work” there have jobs that are unique, much different than anything else that goes on in the country. So, it would stand to be different.
But, it’s a little too different . . .
In my Govicide novels, the leadership of the One World Government is disconnected from the Masses on purpose. They don’t want to have anything to do with the subjects who are forced to work for the OWG every day. And I did this to show that the more leadership is disconnected from the average citizen, the worse the country is.
And the problem is growing in the USA.
