Not in the media. Newspapers only show the crooked and rich because they sell papers. All the others are hidden because they are not considered interesting anymore... it's quite tragic.
Damned if I know. But I do know that in a country with far less invested in things like defense contracts and control of global oil, politicians would at least have the option to pass legislation for things they actually believe in, not things that satisfy the corporations that got them elected in the first place.
That would be Ron Paul. He sticks to the constitution, doesn't believe in getting tangled up in the messes of other countries, and believes in giving people civil liberties.
For the US?
Ron Paul, as far that I can judge!
And then comes nothing for a very long while ...
The vast majority of today's politicians -- in all levels of government -- are quite honorable.
It is just that many in America do not see things that way because they have been brainwashed by the major media to be blind, ignorant and cynical.
We have none and that is sad its all about them and not about our country. Sad but true
I don' know if there are any! They all are puppets! Many lack moral fiber!
Politicians are people with a job to do, and they have to do that job within the confines of a very complex system, with job security determined by fundraising and how well they market themselves. With all of this in mind how is it that people are surprised when those who seek and obtain public office are failing to meet the general public’s expectations of what constitutes an honorable person? Politicians are paid to make policy, that is to say, to be pragmatic. In the quest for solutions to problems there is a primacy to keep the government fulfilling its functions; this is what these officials are paid to do, nothing else. If these things are being fulfilled then the representative is indeed doing his or her job, all that remains is the electorates perception of the methods being employed, and then considerations outside of their job performance. When it comes to the question of “honor,” this falls into the other considerations that I just mentioned. The question of honor comes from whether a politician is fulfilling his role in accord with the perception that you or I have of honor, or as what you are I think of as honorable pertaining to things that have nothing to do with the politician’s job. Morality and honor take a back seat to accomplishing policy in the political arena, and for good reason, they have little to do with the political process. I leave the question of honor where it belongs, between individuals. I am more concerned about my elected officials being capable.
Not to be rude to your question but the honorable politicians left with Elvis on the mother ship. Honorable politicians only exist in our hopes and dreams but never reality. Instead we must look for the lesser of the evils.

If Republican/Libertarian Ron Paul changed his position on the legality/illegality of recreational drugs how much would his support drop? Or would it, his support, increase?
