just want to get elected.

they will say whatever gets them elected

they would take money from the devil to get elected

they do not see "promises" as yet to be fulfilled deliberate lies

they are trying to secure their own family's financial futures (at any cost to the public)

they will take money from the devil to STAY elected

they see themselves as exempt from the rules they make for the "small people".

It just is what it is, folks..

Anyone who spends tens of millions of dollars of OPM (other people's money) to land a job that pays less than $250K a year, and is time-limited, is looking WAY beyond that timeframe, and is seeing a much bigger payoff..longterm.

People who think politicians are truly out to "help" are deluding themselves. We choose the least-worst of the worst, because it's all we CAN do, and we hope for the best every time.

The reason that "nothing ever really changes" is because our form of government is designed to BE that way. The truly altruistic ones who manage to get elected, either get so frustrated that they quit, or they buckle down and learn to play the game to stay elected.
