Politics

I was watching Alpha House on Amazon and was struck by how correct it really is.

Whether it’s in the Senate or a Parliament, these politicians canvas for votes. They get donations from companies who want them to vote their way on certain issues.

It’s basically a job whoring yourself out to the highest bidder and then spending the next year or however long not to get caught doing something inappropriate.

Yes you may put your signature on some policy you believe in or have been paid to agree with, but most of the time it’s a backward and forward process of towing the party line.

We buy into their, “I want to change the world” spiel when all they want is to join the boys club and then uturn the policies they are elected for.
