I strongly dislike politicians

We need both parties to eliminate the party fundraising quotas to serve on and chair committees. When you have to raise $1,200,000/yr for your party to chair an "A" level committee, your allegiance shifts towards the big donors needed to raise those amounts. And all the time spent fund raising takes away from the time available to do real work (plus they're still fundraising for reelection campaigns.)

The type of person who is drawn to be a politician, is the same type of person who ends up putting their own interests above that of society. Sociopathy, narcissism, etc. Nowadays, it seems like anyone who is lacking these qualities, has no interest in being associated with politics, or does not have the immoral character necessary to execute a winning campaign. Solve that and the rest might fall into place. We, as a society, are horrible judges of character; or, we just see politicians as not requiring any character.

Maybe we are viewing politics as a lost cause and hence don’t care anymore and settle for ear-tickling...
