Are political parties effective any more?
It seems to me the only thing Democrats and Republicans do is disagree with one another. While in high school I was taught politicians work hard to make lives better for everyone all over America, however now I believe all they do now is lobby for party policies.
I, like all American citizens, would like to believe that politicians always have the people in mind but this simply is not true. We pay these "voices of the people" to converse with one another about hard-hitting issues, not the differences between the colors blue and red.
If I spent my time at work doing this I would be fired. Why should we treat our employees any different? Politicians, get your acts together because I expect more from people I pay to fix problems.
