keeping up with political events
Politics are a hot topic subject in many homes and workplaces. It can be difficult to stay on top of what is going on and how what is going on will impact your life. I created this blog to help those who struggle to keep up with the ever changing political world find the information and references that can be used to keep up with the times. My hope is that having information about the political events that impact you in one place will help you understand things as they are going on and provide you with the knowledge you need to debate with those near you.
Many people realize that there are enormous benefits to working for the government. Aside from the job security that one has while working as a government employee, there are also fantastic benefits. In addition to pensions, which are almost non-existent in the private sector, government employees enjoy great health benefits. In today's world, health insurance can be very expensive for an individual or family to purchase. And while many private sector employes are left to purchase their own health insurance, most government jobs provide full coverage for their workers.
Your vote is very valuable to a candidate for Congress, but for candidates who are lesser-known, what's even more valuable is a campaign contribution. Running a campaign is expensive and lesser-known candidates often rely on advertisements to get their name out. There are several reasons why it's beneficial to donate to a congressional candidate.
Congressional candidates need campaign contributions to pay for consultants. The goal of a political consultant is to advise and assist in a campaign.
