Is it Possible for All Politicians to Please All of the People All of the time?
Or is it only Possible to Please Some of the People Some of the time?
From what I have seen of my married friends, it's impossible to keep two people pleased at the same time, at least without some kind of deception. It's hard to tell about those of my friends who are dating since everyone is holding back then. What level of deception would it take to keep everyone in the world pleased at the same time? Some times I think politics is about guessing at how bad the reaction to some action will be.
The first is what they promise to do in their campaigns in the run up to an election.
Politicians need not please anyone, they can at least do their work and duties properly and then all people will be satisfied. If pleasing becomes the motive of the politicians, they do all sorts of tricks which yields nothing but mere futile promises.
The only way to please everyone all of the time is to let them be free to make their own mistakes.
Clinton tired to please most of the female voters most of the time
Only possible answer would be please some of the people some of the time. That's evident by the standoff we've watched for years now in Congress and the Senate.
As of now they are only pleasing about 9% of people. Now that the Un-supreme court has designated corporation votes as people it's most likely them. It's certainly not working Americans.
Just about all politicians today follow the golden rule. He who has the gold rules. They please those that have the gold.
The problem with politics is the politicians. Unfortunately the only ones they seem to consistently look to please are the ones with the money. It seems no longer to have anything to do with justice or equality or making the world a better place for all people.
My father sent me a forwarded email with some pithy comments about the current state of affairs in comparison to what the founding fathers had in mind. Very sobering and ever so true...It's very difficult not to feel hopeless in the face of the odds and the status quo.
However, with that said-we as humans have one wonderful feature-we keep trying even in the face of what may seem to be insurmountable odds. So just keep in mind, even though it may take longer than you wish for, steady wins the race. And a pox on the politicians! :0)
I would have to go with the latter. Right now the politicians don't seem to be pleasing too many among us at all. It will definitely be an interesting year as we move towards the elections in November.
This does not only apply to politicians however as none of us are capable of pleasing everyone, all the time. now should we strive to do this as we'll only drive ourselves crazy.

Would the world be a better place without politics or vice versa?In my opinion, Politics is such a dirty game...it is plagued with corruption, impunity, abuse of office, injustice, nepotism, tribalism, racism...and so on. So would the world be a better place without it?

Robert Heinlein promoted in his novel, "Starship Troopers", that an individual could only be elected to public office if that person had completed some other form of public service, and that those voting also had to have done the same.This is an excellent idea, for it promotes...

Is Trump smarter than all of the people going after him?It sure seems to me that this guy has a whole lot of politically astute people and the worlds best investigators going after him. And I think it clear they have been doing so in earnest since about January of 2016. But nothing has stuck?...
