In case many of you haven’t noticed, the news is full of politics and it is negative on one side or the other. This is just business as usual for many politicians who just can’t wait to get their paper work done so that they may be in the news. And for some who have been in office for quite some time, it’s a time to start thinking about what they will do if they are not elected. This is where things get tricky in politics. They need to find a way to generate interest, so that they can start raising more money for the next race. In doing so, they almost sell their souls to get elected, and the money brokers know it.
Now they start to work on the incumbents to help them raise money for the next race because they know the incumbents are desperate. This is where the trouble starts when these money brokers or lobbyists, as some are called, start to hit on the incumbents. On the other side, some of those same lobbyists will work to get new candidates elected for the same seats that they lobbied for an incumbent. Yes it is a rat race and we the people are in the middle of it. Not only do we have to watch all the hullabaloo of debates, conventions and other public forms, but if you are a Union member you are contributing to those candidates you won’t even vote for.
The nuts and bolts of our election process is to get one fraction of our society to go against the other for” WHAT”? Well to get you hyped up to vote for the persons who will do things for you, so you think! When it’s all over we still have the same types of people in office, and they are called YES PEOPLE who do things for the party and not for you. Many may think your vote counts and it does only if your vote reaches a certain segment of the political machine that gets things done for that party, more so than the people. We need to really start getting big money out of politics so that equal representation happens in the political process. So the next time you listen to the news or watch a debate, listen carefully to what is said by both parties on the issues. If the debates were debates, we would have both parties ride in Limousines and battle it out in private, away from the media hype. You can draw your own conclusions on the issues, but just remember, when was the last time you personally heard from your representatives on any issue that you need answers?
Remember we are still a year away from the election. Until then, no politics please.
