When liberals bemoan money in politics, they don’t actually mean all money. Just the money that goes to support the other team. They’re perfectly fine with taking large donations for themselves from rich liberals and organizations. In fact, they depend on it.
That’s just the reality of politics today. No one’s holding public office these days out of a sense of altruism and love for country. Save for maybe a handful of politicians, no one cares about this country. They care about themselves. They care about getting rich and achieving power. Of course, they do that by telling everyone how much they love their country and how they only want to make it a better place. They have to lie and make empty promises to win people’s support. If politicians were honest about their true intentions, no one would vote for them.
So, in today’s political arena, if money and politics were actually divorced from one another, it would defeat the whole purpose of politics.
