Exactly. It is very unfortunate that governments tend to attract the worst of the worst people (those who desire to corrupt and abuse their authority for their own selfish interests). Our Founders were very smart in regards to the US Constitution... however I think they underestimated future problems such as political lobbying and career politics. If there were two things that should have been added to our constitution it would be: 1) mandatory term limits and 2) a complete ban on political lobbying / bribery - specifying lobbying/bribery as a form of treason and mandated publicized death penalty for ALL involved. This way no politician would dare exploiting their authority to enrich themselves and other special interests.
