Why Nobody Trusts Politicians
Guest post by Preston Picus
Politics is a dirty business, but it doesn’t have to be.
Essentially, what you’re trying to do in politics is convince a bunch of folks that you have a good plan and the capacity to carry it out. If they believe in you, then they will take the time to vote for you. At the basic level there shouldn’t be anything so terrible about this.
And yet here we stand: None of us trust politicians. They lie, they cheat, they steal, they care more about their own power than they do about doing what needs to be done. They commit crimes, they break our system for their own financial gain, and they confuse their own self-interest with what is good for our country.
Running for office I see this every day. Our people, the people of San Francisco, are tired of politicians. We struggle with their ineptitude and greed, and motivating to support another politician just isn’t exciting.
I think that’s why we have so many people excited about our campaign: I’m not a politician. I’m an author and public school teacher and at the very basic level I’m a fighter. I want to get in a fight with corruption because every time I look at my daughter I can’t stand the thought that I’m going to leave this current hoard in charge of our government, her government.
This Tuesday we go to the polls and I need your help. I have a plan and I have the capacity to carry out that plan. If you will give me your trust and your vote, you aren’t trusting another politician. You’re trusting a candidate who hates the political process as much as you do.
I would be honored if you would take some time out of your day on June 7th to put me into the November contest. Put me in the same room with these corrupt politicians, I will do the job you send me to do.
