I have recently become aware of the feelings of some of my younger classmates, towards the political candidates running for Office in our 2016 Presidental election.
It is apparent that Bernie Sanders is the choice of most college students; his promises of change, are just what they are “promises!” He has no more power than any other elected official, and he is wrong to make it seem as though he has some kind of a magic wand to do something other politicians can’t.
In fact he is ultilizing the same approach all politicians take when seeking office; the old “I will do this and then I can do that!” But here is the truth, as it should be told!
Young voters now are at a physiological disadvantage, they don’t completly know of the political turmoil which surrounds us, perhaps in four years, no matter who is elected as President now, they will come to realize that there is no such thing as the “Perfect Candidate!” What they are voting for, and what people have been voting for since elections began is the “Lessor of two evils!” Young voters please take some time to understand, the exact meaning of this statement, before you vote in the next election; it will save you a lot of grief and heartache as you venture through your life and raise families and or whatever it is that you are going to do in your life.
All politicians have inherent flaws, I say inherent because that is exactly what it is; they inherit these flaws as they struggle through the political system to get their agendas recognized and hopefully accepted by their political rivals. Some politicians have to kiss the political butts of others, and most of the time still don’t get exactly what they promised the people who voted for them done. Some politicians even lie and cheat to better themselves in the political arena; yes they become corrupt, sometimes purely for money and sometimes to find loop holes for getting their agendas passed.
But be aware of this one thing, in order not to drive yourself crazy: it is the fault of the political system itself, that leads to the politician, who most of the time were whole heartedly sincere and had no intentions of being corrupt, when they were voted into office, and it’s actually the political system that causes them to stray into the land where they have to cheat or do whatever else, to make themselves look good for the people who voted them into office! Remember as a politician, “it’s not who you are or where you come from, but who you know, how much butt you have to kiss to get what you want done, and for some, no matter how much butt they kiss, they still aren’t going to get it done!” No politician is exempt from this process!!!
The only exception to this may be Donald Trump; He is so lost in himself, that he doesn’t have a clue as to what he is doing, but trust me, he did a lot of cheating, lying, and stealing to be where he is now, and he did this without ever having to run for any political office!!!
