I agree with much of what you wrote.


I think the costs of getting elected, and the arms race each race for federal office entails, makes it a sick game with bad actors. Some folks (O'Rourke) try to get elected by getting $5 from millions of people in order to run a campaign without special interest money. So we now have to pay to have "clean" candidates? Lol.

As far a "setting aside values" Washington is hyper-partisan now, so you better do exactly what McConnell or Shumer tell you to do, or Pelosi or McCarthy, as the "leaders" do a great job of telling others how to vote and who to be. I think the majority of the time they are fundraising for the next election and trying to get on Fox or MSNBC to increase their visibility. They are no longer required to work with the other side or govern. Easy work if you can get it.
