You mean sanity and logic in politics? Laws that make sense and are rooted in reality instead of panic?
No, we can't have that! That could be sensible, and we can't have that in our legislative.
Not in a democracy, that's for damn sure. And I'm not being sarcastic.
We like choosing our government policy the same way we choose Top 40 hits or internet memes--purely by the popularity of personal preference. It's my right to vote for people who say good government can be done for free.
It's the same reason our American government prefers to support dictators. You can rely on them better than you can rely on the fickle desires of the general population. Governing is difficult because these are not bullshit issues. It seems to be part of the essential biology of human civilization.
