How can anyone justify spending millions of dollars running for public office? Why does it have to cost so much? And why are only the wealthiest supposed to be the best to represent the rest of us?
I despise how much money politicians spend to run for public office, especially when it's tax payer money. It costs so much because offices for bases, people power and negative ads cost money. All that adds up pretty quickly. The wealthiest aren't supposed to be the best to represent us, they're just the ones that can afford to. It really is a sad state, but there it is.
How else are they going to keep all the peasants out? The same way they keep them out of their clubs and restaurants. It cost too much.
