American Politics are Hitting Rock Bottom
American Politics are not as democratic as they should be in our government. Affluent special interests play a much bigger role in our government then they should be. For example, in this Presidential race Trump and Clinton are doing whatever is necessary to win. They continue to take shots at each other and say things about their opponents that should never be mentioned in an election. In our society, all politicians care about is winning and they will do whatever is necessary to succeed. Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump continue to bring up their opponents scandals whether it be Clintons email scandals or Trumps various scandals involving women to help benefit their position in the race. They do not care what they have to do to win because at the end of the day the political power that the White House holds is all they want. The power of being President matters much more to them than the well being of the country. The power and greed of the few too often win out over the needs of the many. It seems as if politicians now a days do what benefits them rather than what benefits the society. Our two candidates do not care about who they have affected or what they have done to become President because if they win they will control all the power in American Politics. American politics have become a place where strictly winning is the end goal and they will do anything to win. They do not care if they have to change their views or ruin friendships.
To change our political system for the better we need to find politicians who represent the American people rather than politicians who only care about bettering their position. We do not need politicians who care strictly about winning, but ones who care about making our country better and getting it to the place we want it to be.
