I don't know if I like politians. I think in general you have to have a certain amount of ego and self image to be a politician. I don't think there as evil as people make them out to be but they have power and power currupts. That is a human trait. I don't know anyone who not be happy to take a warning instead of a ticket because the police officer was your neighbor. They can do things for people so people will kiss up to them and tempt them with all sorts of things.
I have absolutely no use for any of them. They lie, cheat and steal for their own personal adgendas. It is incredibly ignorant to think we are being represented by the people we vote into office. The frustrating part about our political environment is we are too busy to take the time to find out where a canidate stands on the issues that may be important. I can't keep track of the amount of mindless sheep who voted for Obama and not having a clue about what this man actually stands for. If you hated George Bush, this clown should scare the hell out of you.
The only thing i like about politicians is there ability to dodge questions. You get a politician and a hard hitting interviewer in a room and its an extreme game of cat and mouse:P to see who slips up or who explodes first. It can be very amusing if your in the right mood otherwise you wonder why your watching it in the first place.
I second the "mindless sheep" comment by JC Grif. Any Presidential contender is so stuck in PR rut that none of what he is really like seems to come out. It's a hard game for real voters to decide what they are really like, and then the "mindless sheep" override any well-thought out votes.
As far as polticians go, I'm sure some had good intentions for thier first year, but the climate in Washington is not very unlike a high school: a goody-two-shoes is going to get a swirly.

I believe all politicians should have a maximum salary amount of 60 thousand a year. Someone should want to be a politician for country, not for money. This set limit would disrupt greedy lying politicians from entering office. The politician will not work for "60,000" a year. The true...

Some thoughts:No campaign contributions allowed all campaigns are funded by a tiny flat tax every party receives a given amount to publicize their views so long as they can get say 50 000 party members.

Why does politics only seem to attract people that want to lord over us all and enslave us?Government handouts and other forms of "free" money are anti-human as they serve to demoralize the populace, make us lazy and not motivated to achieve anything other than sitting on our asses. ...

Politics in itself is good. It was basically created to give meaningful directions to an otherwise chaotic and multi-dimensional problems of our society. The politicians are the ones that make it look trashy and confusing to a majority of the people. Too much scandals/corruptions and too much...

There have been a few threads going on that are harping on the personal family issues of some politicians, namely Sarah Palin.Yes, these individuals are heavily exposed because they chose to run for office, but why the downright ill will towards the people themselves or even their husband or wife?...
