The reason we have people representing us that are not "in touch" with 99% of us, is that the elections are highly unfair. Unless you are rich, you don't stand a chance at representing the people politically.
Why don't we take the money out of our campaigns? Give each candidate the same amount of air time on television and radio and have national televised debates.
We also need to stop giving elected officials so many perks during their time of service and after holding office. They should not make more than minimum wage AND should have to pay for health insurance from their wages, just the same as other workers. We should insure that our elected officials remember at all times that they are public servants.
Until we reform our election process (take the money out of the equation) and get rid of lobbyists, NOTHING changes!!
