Let us take a long hard look at our representative politicians as a collective with a view on what could be wrong and how we can fix what we found wrong with the system, if anything.
In a very practical way, our workers are the politicians we nominate to represent us and they actually have a tough job to do. There are several facets of their work, all of which must be understood. In the first place, a politician must be competent and willing to rule the government, state, city or other political body for which, according to the will of the people, they have been chosen. Secondly the specific party who elected them must represent them. They have to communicate with other politicians with very different ideas of what is best. Within the confines of existing legislation, they must do this.
In an attempt to show people that what they hear is what they want, politicians will twist it this way and spin it that way, but in the end, it all comes down to the same thing. To get votes, tell them whatever they have to say. In the political field, integrity does not seem to compensate.
Here are some of the most honest and popular politicians in the US.
