What Does It Take To Become A Good Politician

With all of the news of late discussing whether or not a politician is honest or not, how about we discuss how and why they became politicians in the first place. Not everyone is cut out to be in the political arena. It takes a person that is sincerely dedicated to the people they intend to serve. They can't be concerned about themselves. They simply have to truly wanted to serve the people. Wouldn't it be a breath of fresh air if politicians were not paid to do the peoples works, but rather acted as true servants of the people.

Now, term limits would be another idea. If the elected officials have the prospect of constantly running for reelection removed, they may be more focused on we, the people. Although these are not new ideas, they could be ideas that if put into place, could have a positive effect on our political system.

With all of the other issues with elections, large donors should be eliminated. If the candidates can't raise enough from all of us that actually go out and vote, then maybe they shouldn't be running for public office. There are obviously reasons why political candidates require funding for their campaigns, but the incredibly large amounts that candidates are raising just seems to be an unreal amount of money that they would normally not have access to.

Keeping our elected officals honest requires that they have that characteristic from them beginning. Seeing all of the political ads may also offer us a glimpse into the person they are.
