Because that would cause chaos.
Do you think the public opinion, majority, stays consistent for more than a year or two?
Because that would make them our employees and representatives and not our rulers. The system is designed so that there is a ruling class. All they have to do to keep power is bribe you with your own money, or the future income of unborn generations (debt). <br />
Another good question to ask is, why are politicians not required to fullfill their campaign promises? How come when they blantantly break their campaign promises, or do the opposite of what they promised, nothing happens? In fact politicians who do this frequently get re-elected. Congress has the approval rating of a cockroach infestation, and yet most incumbents are reelected. <br />
If you order something at a restaurant and they give you a different plate that is cold and contains foods you are allergic to, you can raise ******* hell about it and get some recompense, but that is because restaurants are actually designed to serve people. The government isn't meant to serve people, its meant to exploit and rule them. <br />
Democracy is bullshit.
Isn't that what impeachment is for?
If you're talking about the United States, we can. It just requires like a 75% majority (which NEVER happens) and a longer span of time than the person is usually in office for.
Yes, but first we'd need to convince the politicians to allow themselves to be fired. It's like hitting yourself in the head with a brick.
They can be through the recall election process.
Because it's not actually a democracy!
Cause we're not really electing them. Government got a nice sham goin though.
It's the government, go figure!
