Leaving your profession in hopes of becoming a public servant costs money. To become president, arguably the greatest oportunity to serve, you must spend the most money. Billions, actually.
The irony that you must spend so much to serve the public should show just how much power the public really has.
If candidates spend money to earn votes, and you’re the one voting, then who really has the power?
And you’re not only powerful on election day. Consider using your voice and choice when someone isn’t trying to buy your vote. You might be surprised at how loud and clear you can be heard.
