I’m sure everyone has heard the saying “The squeaky wheel gets the grease.” I am convinced that the motto in American politics is “The person/organization with the most money gets the grease.”
Name one area of concern in the United States — gun control, health care, tax reform — and it becomes quite clear that this is true. One needn’t look further than the president’s own cabinet. Nearly all members are multimillionaires.
There are three things that need to change to remedy the political black hole in the U.S.:
1. Campaign reform
2. Term limits
3. Stop all lobbying efforts
Until these things happen there will never be a level playing field in American politics.
