Thomas Sowell explains why politicians so rarely seem to solve our problems

Whether it is budget deficits or a broken immigration system or failing public schools, political problems, even the ones that are quite solvable, persist decade after decade.  Thomas Sowell explains:

No one will really understand politics until they understand that politicians are not trying to solve our problems. They are trying to solve their own problems-- of which getting elected and re-elected are number one and number two. Whatever is number three is far behind.
Thomas Sowell's birthday is today, June 30.

ALSO from Thomas Sowell:
The problem isn't that Johnny can't read. The problem isn't even that Johnny can't think. The problem is that Johnny doesn't know what thinking is; he confuses it with feeling.
