It would appear that the majority of companies funding campaigns, are only companies who will see benefits once their candidate attains office. Thus we have been pulled into a cycle of rich businesses and rich politicians, simply working to make one an other more money. Which also means that the only people who run for this office, are more concerned with making large sums of money than the well being of our country.
Funds should be given on the basis of positive, productive, and working ideas for addressing our countries REAL issues.
Money should not be handed out to be spent on television ads merely slandering their opponents.
The lack of suitable candidates stems from a problem rooted deep in our society. If we hope to find out who, out of our nation, are the best fit for these jobs, positive action needs to be taken on a smaller scale, we can no longer consistently rely on the respective parties to present us with viable options. It pains me to think that out of the 300 Million people in this country, we can't find/(decide on) anyone who is fit enough to clean up this mess. Perhaps the age of which you can attain presidency should be altered in order to utilize the up and coming minds of the future.
Perhaps Federal funding could be used to pay a politician a small livable salary, and perhaps provide them with comfortable housing, in order to prove their motives for running for office.
Perhaps this will clean out our cabinets and senate seats for the people undoubtedly trying to do the country good.
Perhaps instead of liars and fools, we can allow intelligence, wisdom, and truth run our country once again.
Perhaps some of this government spending and political campaign money should be cut, and maybe then we could pay productive school teachers what they should deserve.
