Many are against political dynasties but many politicians continue to come from families with members already occupying various seats in public office. What do you think of political dynasties?

I think that it is an irrevocable consequence of the current structuring of campaigns and, most importantly, campaign finance. The fact is that if you aren't ALREADY rich and have lots of good contacts, you can't run a successful national campaign. A state campaign is difficult too. Politicians spend millions on their campaigns and often only part of this money comes from donations.
