Last name aside... it is sad that politics is like this. People are not elected based on their ideas of views and problem solving abilities.
Politicians are elected based on "who you know" and "how much money you have"
This government id full of lawyers and business people. (Some exceptions apply)
The writers of the Constitution and leaders during the Revolution were lawyers, scientists, educators, journalists, inventors, philosophers, former military commanders, etc. People from all walks of life.
I often wonder, is it time to radically change the government... and bring this country back to its original political roots? Corruption is running deep through the political system.... as an independent I see it on both sides. Human nature has poisoned the system.... how, would Franklin, Adams, Washington, Hancock, Henry feel about our political system today?
