A Paragraph using the 5 vocabulary words

Picking a leader to represent an entire country can be tricky! Politicians with different views run these campaigns. Liberals might focus on social programs, while conservatives might talk about lower taxes. People who lobby try to convince politicians to support their causes, like protecting the environment or businesses. Also, in some cases, countries might use sanctions, to pressure others to change. It can be a very delicate topic, but in the end, voters decide who best represents them based on these ideas!
