If a candidate takes in money from special interest, can they still serve the voters?


If they take 100's of millions of dollars from special interest groups can they keep any of their campaign promises to the people or is it payback time to the special interest groups that paid to get them elected?

    I don't think that most individuals are informed enough or would even care enough to be involved but I wish they would. Most people still don't think their vote matters.

    How can you tell when a politician is lying? When his lips are moving. I do believe that some of them think that they do what they are saying but our system changes them instead of them changing the system.

    Many Congressmen do want to serve the people. The power structure of the Congress has become so warped that it takes a Congressman years before having the seniority to make a difference. He must still deal with party politics and election expenses.
