What happens to politicians once they get into office?

As I  am writing this article I don't want anyone to ever think that I don't love my country. I love America I think it's the greatest country in the world and God has blessed this country so much. I would not want to live anyplace else but here.   But, I don't love the politicians who are running our country.  Men seek to get into politics I think in the beginning they really do want to help the American people to get their needs met and they make lots of promises to the people if they can get in office. But, something happens between the promises and when they take office.  Somehow they forget the promises that they have made when they get in the midst of all the other people that are seated around them,  either  Senators or Representatives like themselves and they caught up in the glitz and glamour of that life and they forget the districts that they came from and the promises that they made to those people.  They start to be prideful. They begin to think they are somebody important, more important than the “LittlePeople” they are representing and they want to stay there for as long as they can.  They like the money, the position, the feeling of importance, and plus the people are supporting them financially too.  It’s the brass ring they have been looking for and now they have it all. It seems to be a never-ending cycle where we put them in and they do nothing for us. When election time comes around again we still look for that man/or woman that we hope will do what they say they will, if not we will keep searching.

Our government seems to be plagued with men & women who lose their perspective along the way and forget why they were put into office.  It’s not to travel and spend the taxpayer’s money on expensive things like houses, cars, boats, mistresses, or put into their own pockets. They were put in office to serve the people, not to glorify themselves!

You can become a millionaire by going into politics. And we the suckers....I mean the taxpayer foot the bill.

Great article. Perhaps you will find it enlightening to read some of Noam Chomsky's work. Two interesting books written by him are: Failed States (The abuse of power and the assault on democracy), and How the World Works. He actually wrote more than a hundred books and gives lectures about politics and power all around the world.
