If people really want (and would vote for) an honest politician, why aren't honest men and women running for office?
It is a simple case of supply and demand. My earlier question overwhelmingly revealed that people hate politicians and think they are universally dishonest. It would stand to reason that if honest people ran for office, they would be shoe-ins for election. And yet... there never ever ever seems to be honest people running for office. Can you explain that? Are we actually the dishonest ones when we say we would vote for an honest candidate?
