I will give you my definition of how a Representative becomes a politician:
When we vote for a new candidate we want someone who will represent us and honor their oath to office by defending our Constitution, ALL of it, not cherry pick what they like. We call these people Representative’s and they are public servants, in the public domain, in short, public property, in either party.
Now somewhere along the line they start losing sight that they are supposed to represent the People, and they instead start to represent special lobbyist groups that are made up of big money and people who do not even live in the district the representative comes from, so this means he/she no longer cares about his/her constituent’s, that is the moment he/she becomes a Politician. It now becomes all about short sighted agenda(s) and self interests, and no longer the will of the People who put him/her there.
I hope that was helpful? When they get to this point, it is time to BOOT THEM OUT on their ear, for freedoms sake!
