Political Realism: Politicians are always going to be self-interested, rather than true "public servants."
Some might even call that, "the appearance of corruption." In response, the Good Government crowd suggests government oversight boards, ever-more complex ethics rules, and taxpayer financing of campaigns.
Others will say we must elect better people. But that won't ever happen . . . at least not in significant numbers.
We must deal with this fact. We need a strategy that takes Political Realism into account and takes us to our goal of Downsizing DC.
And on today's Downsize DC Conference Call, you'll learn how we can make Political Realism our friend.
