    Constantly Mocking the American Legion is a form of micro-aggression against Veterans.

    Someone who will actually follow what his (or her) constituents WANT not what the high paying doners want.

    Constantly being a racist prick gets you both barrels of my sarcasm and irreverence.

    A politician that leads the people instead of following them is something that you will NEVER - I repeat, NEVER - have in a government where politicians are democratically elected. It's impossible.

    When an elected politician has a choice to make between doing the right thing and doing the popular thing, they're going to pick the popular thing every time. Unless, of course, they don't care whether or not they stay in office - let alone move up to a higher one.

    That's why, in many ways, I tend to agree with royalism.

    I don't agree with that...

    Any idiot can do what polls say. I think the most effective politicians influence/persuade public opinion rather than follow it.

    there are limits of course...

    And then the people vote him out, and replace him with someone that will do what they want him to do. And then we're back to square one.
