Most US Politicians Are Dishonest?


97% of you responded with yes to this question, only one person in fact thought otherwise. So what is this person experiencing that rest of us are not?

I, like the overwhelming majority, opine that most US politicians are dishonest, but not all.

We are fortunate to have politicians such as Bernie Sanders, Dennis Kucinich, Alan Grayson, Russ Feingold—who are exceptions to the rule. Nevertheless, they are—exceptions to the rules!

I am sure there are many more that I am not aware of, who are in politics in this country, and are honest. The truth is they are few and far between.

Why are we at this stage?

Are we in our time any different than the past?

We romanticize the bygone days and exaggerate our pleasant memories. This is only human nature. Politicians do not live in islands, they are from us. They reflect and represent our own selves. We elect our politicians. They mirror us.
