The American People Think, The American People Believe, The American People Want

I’m rather sick of hearing from both sides of every issue what the American people think, believe, or want. In general, I don’t care what the American people think, believe, or want. In those cases where I do care what the American people think, believe, or want, I’d much rather learn about it from properly sampled and constructed polls than from salespeople politicians. But I do care about what our politicians think, believe, and want. I like hearing that. But I’d like to hear more about why they think and want these things without being told that their thoughts and desires are aligned with the thoughts and desires of the majority of the American people. I suspect that they aren’t.

One thought on “The American People Think, The American People Believe, The American People Want”

  1. The belief that some honorable politician will be born to finally respect the wishes of the People (as per their original job description) is just another form of blind religion looking for a Saviour. It’s a confession of abject helplessness. Reject all faith, including all political systems masquerading as democracy.
