"We've been conditioned to think that only politicians can solve our problems. But at some point, maybe we will wake up and recognize that it was politicians who created the problems."

And yet, knowing this, we still look to career politicians to solve the problems they, themselves, created.
A good quote.
Connecting dots often leads to reality. Thanks for a great quote on limiting the government.
This seems like one of those general statements that sounds awesome but doesn't mean much without specifics. Just curious -- what problems do you think he means? And would electing people with no experience in public office always make things better?
Ignorance is a common problem with politics. Study our founding fathers. They were literate, leaders, and they could write without a speechwriter or others telling them what to say. You ask for specifics then study the issues. Find out what your representatives are doing. How did they vote on key legislation? Don't listen to the media. See for yourself and decide if we have a government for the people.
