Job is a career
Yesterday I was at an event for yet another person running for office, the only problem is this job is his career. That's right, a person running for a town clerk position and since we, the people, have deemed that it is an elected position, rather than a job that goes to the best qualified person, we get a qualified person and then make them run every 2 years for their job. And it's not like we give them extra money so that they can run, no, we make them hold events so that we can get donations. And that's where I come in, the candidate asked me to collect money for his event! So that's what I did and probably raised $600 easy. Wouldn't it be nice if EVERYONE could raise that much money with only 1 event. Problem is that it won't even cover 1/10 of what is needed for a campaign anymore.
