The same people who rail against "big government" and regulation are the first to ask the government to help them
maybe politicians aren't born that way, but the political party process sure draws the worst ones out.
I agree, the voters are to oeasily mislead and/or ignorant to use the voting process for the control method it is meant to be.
The old saw about "if you don't like it, do it yourself" is so old, it has gray hair. holding office was intended to be a service one provided for their community, not a lifetime career. The offices have changed thanks to the efforts of long time sitting elected criminals who have taken what should be an office of service and added so many perks and privileges that most private businesses cannot compete.
You can be the party sucker if you want and take what they give you.
I say that until those same spineless, ignorant voters get some sense and start immediately replacing party hacks with people who sincerely want to serve, we will only continue to have criminals seeking those coveted, plush positions.
