Can anyone here describe an honest politition? I know in my 60 odd years,I have only found one that actually was working for the public,not money. Can anyone else think of what one has done for the good of all? thank you in advance.

I still rank Ron Paul as one of the few honest politicians in this country. I'm sure there are others, but they are hard to find.

I actually like Ron Paul, but he will never go any further than where he is right now. He makes to much sense to run the country, and he doesn't kiss the a$$ of the RNC elite, so he will always just be Dr. Ron Paul Congressman from Texas.

Isn't that a contradiction in terms? Once they have crossed the line to "politician" they are gone, beyond help. I prefer a public servant and they are few and far between. At the national level, I would saw probably Ron Paul in congress, perhaps a few more. I still have a lot of respect for a number of my state represenatives, Dan Itse, Herb Richardson, Bill Remich to name a few. Those are people who aren't afraid to stand up for my state and for the people of New Hampshire, people who still hold my state motto in reverence and the principals of our state as something to be preserved.

Thank you,it appears that this Ron Paul is pretty good. I must admit,after some of the answers so far,the United States are lucky to have a number of honest polititions in the individual States. I wish I was able to say the same about Canada,unfortunatly,as I mentioned,I have only know one for sure. thank you for your responce.

Honest politicians are important in the society and make the country more good. I heard in the country Philippines, their is a priest running a governor on his province and he is so honest. He refused to received an unknown gift worth half a million Philippines pesos. People are happy. And do all is dealings and tasks in honesty. The governor's name Among Ed Panlilio. Province of Pampanga, Philippines.
