Your reasons for getting out of politics approximate mine. I was only a town councilman but at the end of my only term, I was absolutely disgusted with both sides, although I fulfilled every single one of my campaign pledges (an achievement most elected officials are never able to accomplish). I always put the Town first and by that I differ from most because I did that to the best of my ability in a literal sense while most will only operate within the constraints or desires of their party.

In so doing I completely alienated my own political party big shots although my constituents were behind me. Every elected official states they do the same thing but they conveniently leave off the, " long as the party approves."
