Politicians love pointing their fingers at other vocations and demanding accountability. But, while teachers, nurses, carpenters, and business owners all need licenses or some type of certification, there is not a similar standard demanded, or expected for politicians.
Weekly, sometimes daily, there are accounts of politicians on both sides of the aisle misusing their power, brokering illegal backroom deals, and deliberatly lying to the people they are supposed to serve.
Hold the politicians accountable. Don't leave it to their cronies to punish them, let's create a licensing system that will revoke their ability to practice for bad behavior. Let's hold them personally responsible for their decisions and their actions.
