Daily poll question: Should politicians be ousted from office if they break campaign promises?
TOPICS: Miscellaneous; Politics
KEYWORDS: campaign; politicians; promise
It's not likely to happen even if somehow an ethical congress would pass such a law.

If politicians break campaign promises, should they be ousted?
They should be executed.
There needs to be a downside to being a parasite.

Then almost all of them would be ousted. A much better solution is term limits.

If they lie, steal or cheat and pass laws for self gain, yes. Also they should lose their pensions.
Too many of them convicted of crimes still get their congressional pensions. We need to put a stop to this.
Tired of taxpayer dollars going to criminals in congress.

Beat me to it. Yes, bring back the good old days of settling these grievances “country style.”

Of course they should by the voters at the next election. Of course sometimes the situation changes and the voters agree with the new position.

Good job. I was trying to figure out how to say that without getting banned, chickened out.

There is also the case were they work their butts off to get what they promised and the case of many conservatives, the RINOs undermine them at every turn.
