We have a crisis of leadership in this country. Our country is currently run by well-pedigreed, well-connected, and mostly ill-informed political elites, who have little in common with the average American. Congress has stopped being a representative voice for the people of this country and switched to becoming overseers of a bureaucratic state. Influence is the political capital of Washington D.C., and our elected leaders are little more than bought and paid for mouth pieces for particular interest groups. We must have public servants again. We must have representatives who are willing to listen to their constituents, so they can actually represent them, and above all, we must have members of Congress who will put this nation’s needs above that of financiers and lobbyists.
