Yeah that's a good point, all that money and power... definatly out of touch!!
Although the same goes for the majority of politician's now and in the past. I cant see it changing anytime soon...sadly.
I think people are making a crucial mistake by focusing on individual politicians. The entire left vs right is nothing but gladiator games to
entertain the masses. The system is broken because no matter the politician, he's always being controlled by lobbyists sooner or later. Politicians
now stopped working for citizens, they are working for themselves like people in the private industry. So after a few years in office, time they use
to push through laws/regulations that favor whatever lobbyists pay them, they get offered lucrative jobs from the very people who paid their campaigns
while they were in office.
It's not "by the people for the people" anymore, it's "by the people for corporations" nowadays. Until that's fixed, it doesn't really matter
who's in power. Money corrupts people, and everyone has his/her price...and corporations are willing and able to pay that price, no matter what it
But sadly, instead of focusing on this important issue, we have people doubting birth certificates that have already been provided. Beyond sad
