Things I ponder. Sideless political content

Things I ponder - why do politicians get to make up rules for themselves? Isn’t that the very definition of conflict of interest?

Wouldn’t it be better if ... say...voters got to dictate the terms of their politicians?


For instance - Voters can make up laws that say things like - term limits, salary, ... that’s pretty much the bulk of it. Immunity to insider trading is there but I can see why that would apply

I think all politicians should have term limits and get paid national average and have to buy their own health insurance. I think it would put them on track to make things better in America.


******** PLEASE NOTE - No Political party has been mentioned here*****

I don’t want it to be this party is for that but that party is for this.
