Electing well-qualified individuals like Josh will make our society empowered by leaders rather than politicians. Unfortunately, politicians like Mr. Mangano have their own interests in mind before the peoples but we can stop this.

This is highly evident in Socialist states where only a select few have power in the economy. Many of these high ranking officials come into power by doing favors such as passing bills or legislation.
