What is the role of politics in our society?
May 05, 2015 11:50AM
Politics is the barometer of social and ethical changes in
American society. As of June 2015,the Supreme Court legalized gay
marriage nationwide and confirmed the Affordable Care Act
(ObamaCare) for the second time, while the "Citizens United"
decision now allows unlimited corporate and foreign cash donations
to politicians. Prayer (or not) in schools remains a topic among
the GOP. Politics brings all these to the forefront for national
debate, as well as helping control and direct the money necessary
to win elections and project power and authority.
