I think there are some honest ones, but it's not the norm. Bernie Sanders and Ron Paul are both pretty honest as far as I can tell.

Sure, there are still honest ones. But liars are outnumbered.

I believe there are many politicians out there; but they are often forced to follow the party line on key issues and change there stances to try and appeal to potential voters. It is hard to be completely honest in a parliamentary democracy and although many dishonest and deceitful power and money obsessed individuals exist there is also plenty of people there for the right reason- making a positive contribution to society.

Its an occupational hazard even if they are honest.
In the US where people are more likely to vote by name recognition, and that recognition requires funding (The candidates that outspent their opponents win 95% of elections. http://letsfreecongress.org...) their job requires kowtowing to special interests via Superpaks and lobbying.

Point Trump.

It's impossible for any leader to please every person in a group. This means that some members in a group won't perceive the leader to be honest.

Hi

Oh yes. Wylted is an example of a honest politician.

Which is why you all should vote for him.

The thing is, I hate relativism. I hate relativism more than I hate everything else, excepting, maybe, fibreglass powerboats... What it overlooks, to put it briefly and crudely, is the fixed structure of human nature. - Jerry Fodor

Every last politician is honest, just ask them. This is why they are trusted to make policies that shape society.

What the hell? No they aren't. They've lied several times already. (Or "misspoke" depending on how PC the person you ask is)
