Primogeniture, sinecures and $52 billion in loot
Exceptionally well done piece Steve. The system is broken and getting out of it is virtually impossible. Doesn't matter, right or left, we've all just become pawns for those who get filthy rich off the rest of us. Lot's of people get into politics for the right reason but quickly succumb to the power and self-righteous sense they are entitled.
I was never a fan of term limits, i am now. Dark money be gone, let small donor contributions with caps of $50 or $100 and federal and state funding with limits based on the race be set. Sadly, it will never happen because money is the game that all of them play. The better they play, the longer they serve, the richer they get. How the hell did we get here?
