If not now, when?
In my last letter, I voiced my frustration about party politics and the lack of quality leadership amongst our political leaders. Now, I would like to turn the tables and look at our political machine from another angle.
In my opinion, our political system is broken. Broken to the point that we need a complete overhaul or at least a complete systems check to determine what is actually working for our democracy and what is not. Even though I am likely “preaching to the choir,” let’s discuss a few areas which cause me great concern, to say it mildly.
First, I think it’s wrong for political candidates to spend more time raising money for their upcoming campaign than they do with the voters in their district. It is well-known in politics that the candidate who raises the most cash is typically the winner. So, the system requires candidates to cater to big wallets, even those wallets who can’t actually vote for them.
