  • Agree with both pp, although there are only a handful of politicians I would even give the benefit of the doubt to as far as 'good intentions'. Most are out to serve themselves and the ones that donated the most.

  • I'm not sure these people have good intentions. I think this is a power struggle and they are trying deliberately to ruin us.

  • yes, I agree with the quote. I know that some people go into politics for the right reasons, they just stay too long and well, we get what we have now. A power struggle, as jesse said.

  • I thin kit is very true. Good intentions lead to a lot of things! Some good some not so good but in the end it's people doing what they feel is right and forgetting that what they feel is right isn't always what is right for everyone. It's kinda like ' You can't please everyone all the time only some of the people some of the time.' and as other said Power struggles have a lot to do with some of the political 'good intentions'
