The Trouble With Politics
The biggest political problem we are facing is the influence of money. Politicians need lots of money to get elected and those with a lot of money can buy influence. The individuals and groups with a lot of money tend to have one foremost goal: more money.
The Money People tend to support politicians who can help them get more money. The State of the Union, the world, and the environment are secondary. The priorities are wrong. I don’t know the answer, because it is up to Congress to get big money out of politics and the politicians need money. Maybe it has to come from a constitutional convention initiated by the state legislatures. That is a problem because those legislators need money to get elected.
