For a while I was naïve enough to believe that the candidates set up their own platform on specific problems with corresponding solutions. Then our job was to read up on each candidate’s history, viewpoints, and vision for the future and then make our choice.
I’ve come to understand that we don’t elect a public official anymore.
We elect a political party.
