What if there were a rule that a politician who is shown to have misrepresented things becomes ineligible for reelection?

We can change things. The question is whether we want to badly enough to pursue the courses of action necessary to achieve it.

    That’s one of Chesterton’s points in his ‘What’s Wrong With the World’.
