Many people are fed up with the kind of treatment that they get from those in office, but the truth is that it’s very difficult to blame the politicians singularly for the shoddy treatment that the citizens get. The political machine makes it very difficult for people to do their jobs and that leads to a whole world of trouble for the people who have health care and education needs.
Let’s forget, for just a second, about the differences between the two political parties that complicates the political landscape but let’s go back to what someone must do in order to be a part of the political system at all.
A person who is running for office on a major level, even if it’s on the major local level, is doing it because they are committed to seeing the benefits of being in politics. It will cost them six figures of their own money easily to get involved. Of course they cannot do it alone and therefore they reach out to other political people to find investors. The money that is given to them is done in good faith. The faith is that when all is said and done they will give back just what they put in. This makes the job they have to do so much harder. When they get into office they have to start paying back favors before they can make a difference. It’s a tough way to live but it’s the price they paid to get into office in the first place.
