Considering New American Politics And The Changes Needed
While thinking about new American politics one can get the impression that there is a need for change. The motivations for entering the political field, have made it almost impossible for many to even consider the idea of running for office. The positions of power have been set in proverbial concrete over time.
We've all learned of the amount of diligence, the people who set up this country applied to the documents they prepared to protect the country's future generations. These people where there because they where patriots.
The financial aspect that has entered today's political scene, has made a mockery out of these institutions. The design of the laws that should rule the country was intended to work in any situation. The problem is they could never imagine what was to become of their little country.
Today's political machine is a monster. This monster feeds on money. What used to be a respectable noble career, in service to god and country, has now become a profit motivated industry.
This industry is driven by profit. So many campaign contributions have made the vision of running for office a long way off to the average patriot who would like to help the country.
The things that have to be changed are important to the future of America. The problem lies in the fact that the decision making process is in the hands of the beast. They are the ones that control change.
There is no motivation to change something that is a profitable venture and would only be detrimental to themselves.
Motives must be changed. The structure of elections are the main problem. Costing sometimes millions of dollars for a successful campaign today, gaining a check in the win column is almost impossible for the individual without some kind of corporate help.
This brings in special interests and takes away any fair playing field that could exist.
Achieving change will be hard. The whole system must be overhauled. We must find a direct way to eliminate profit from politics. Until this is done, the reasons to run for office are to financially enticing to those with ulterior motives.
Getting people who are actually there to help the country keep it's honest democratic constitutional views, will not happen as long as greed is allowed to enter the mix.
Avoiding whats coming without making changes, is impossible and left to it's own direction, new American politics are on a collision course for destruction
