That’s right; to be a politician should be a crime.

It should be outlawed...along with...

Politics should be only run by a stringent lawful process that says these things:


ONLY people can run for office who are nominated by well known upstanding citizens….one cannot just run on their ego.


Limited and publicly supported races where a candidate is legally bound to DO IN OFFICE EVERYTHING YOU PROMISED OR GO TO JAIL!


Lobbying politicians is illegal.


Once out of office the Lobbying industry should be illegal for ex office holders as well as jobs in any major corporation


With that and other ideas I may start a political party one day and cure this country or save it.

Yes, politicians in their present form should be banned, but politics will always be, it's a sociology thing.

Isn't starting a political party to make politicians illegal like opening a cooking school but making chefs illegal?

Fair debates on real issues.

Get rid of all the lobbyists.

Just curious... what is a 'well known, upstanding citizen'?

Wouldn't having no Political System though, create an open door for Monarch Rule?

The System as we know and endure it is a Circus but there is no real alternative other than going backwards. Now if we went forwards people would fear abuse from the ruling Circus Monkeys reigning in a NWO. Kinda like Bush Sr. kept mentioning when he was President. And if it was to come to a grinding halt, the Political System that is, People would automatically believe it was done by Order.

So you want a self-perpetuating oligarchy, which nobody can join without being nominated by somebody who belongs to the oligarchy already.
This would probably become hereditary in about one-and-a-half generations.

GHW Bush mentioned the New World Order over 70 times in various speeches and addresses even well after his term came to a close.

It is something that is, in my opinion, pulling the levers right now.

Politics in America is at its worst

Look at a politician like Chris Christie.

A liar like Hillary Clinton is on top

Both these cheap politician years ago would be out by now with Christie’s bridgegate and Hillary’s email scandal.

And a clown like Trump would have been out

The American people though are so dam stupid. Bugs bunny, Bozo the clown or Howdy doodie could win in this country because the population is so out of it.

What happens if you are elected to a representative body? What if your constituency elected you to do something that turns out to be unpopular with a majority of the rest of the representative body?

For example, your constituency might favor severe restrictions on abortion and you might have gotten elected with a promise to enact those, but unless a majority of the other representatives also got elected from constituencies that favor those restrictions, you won't be able to deliver. The same goes for gun restrictions, socialism, and most other political talking points.

Still awaiting a definition of a 'well known, upstanding citizen'.

If a politician runs on banning abortion or raising taxes and he gets in and tries legally to do this and fails then he will have obeyed the law.

I didn’t say I wanted a dictator, just no more lying and running and then getting in and doing nothing.


Politics is a business of lies, deception, and mass hypnosis. Look at Trump and Obama.

Trump followers are being scammed like Obamas followers were

when are people going to get hip to this

"" Politics should be banned. ""

Works well in China and Cuba and North Korea and Vietnam and a few other "citizens choice" countries.

But I understand the point.

Maybe you.

A person has to be nominated by someone other than himself

Upstanding citizen is anybody, sane, an adult and not a felon, yet!

The solution is a revolution - politicians have an agenda (whether they know it or not) to erode the Constitution thereby severely risking the security of a free state.

Citizens have the 2nd amendment as a tool to combat enemies both foreign and domestic.

The US government is so corrupt that it needs deconstructing and rebuilding with honest hard working citizens - not dynastic bloodlines and deceitful career politicians working for corporate oligarchies.

Excellent idea. Which politician do I vote for to make this happen?

You forgot it works well in the US as well.

....What people don't understand is that the US is a mass psychological concentration camp and experiment.

The US is a secret all of the countries you named just through hidden psychology not the boot in the ass.

...the boot in the brain

I also wonder ... does that mean a politician couldn't even be a Walmart greeter or a barista at the local Starbucks?
