I am optimist though, I always believe there is a solution eventually to a problem, and believe we can fix a problem, and this one starts with our universities. The universities that are heavily subsidized and are so expensive nowadays should be doing more to inform students about how rough the game of politics can be. Real life and college are completely different, and I think these students with big dreams and aspirations about going into politics should be informed by someone in the real world. A university should have a speaker brought into every upper level political science class to discuss the negative aspects of going into politics. So many people in their mid thirties leave politics frustrated and they don’t really have a trade that applies to the real world. It’s harder for them to find good work because there resume can be discriminated against, and the skills on Capitol Hill don’t translate to the private sector. Many of these older people missed out on what would have been there prime earning years if they had taken a different route out of college, but instead chose politics. They didn’t make a difference, they now have no money to their name, and they don’t have a job because there candidate just lost, and they can only think what might have been.
