When you hear the word politician, what is the thing that comes to mind? Maybe these words come to mind; lies, deceit, crookedness, and selfishness. A recent poll showed that 42% of Americans said that many politicians cannot be trusted. It is easy to tell voters what they want to hear while campaigning and then lose sight of what really matters once you are elected into office. It is easy to make empty promises. Many citizens don’t even partake in voting because of this. Too many people voting feels like a chore instead of a right. One thing that politicians should definitely remember while campaigning this fall is that they work for the citizens. They work for the people and are elected by the people. How can you work for someone whom you know nothing about? How can you work for the people when you don’t know what they need? Politicians need to be up to date on all current issues that oppress the people. The many temptations of their job can be enough to corrupt anyone. Politicians must keep sight of the goal and stay strong in the face of adversity.
