“Should the group in a legislator’s district that got him elected monitor his votes, and recruit someone to run against him in the next primary if he starts voting wrong?”
Yes, I believe that the group who helped the legislator get elected should watch what their legislator is voting on and if he beings to vote for bills that they don’t agree with they should be able to recruit an opposing politician to run against the deceiving party.
Everybody can change their opinion at some point, whether it’s voters or politicians. Although, when a politician changes his mind it can get a bit more complicated. The legislator’s voters are counting on him to represent them appropriately and carry through with the “promises” that he made them. If he doesn’t follow through with these things and begins to deceive the voters and change his mind set, the voters will most likely and hopefully not vote for him again.
If your politician goes back on his word you need to call him out and make it known to the public that he is turning into a deceiving, lying, and unreliable politician. In other words, as a wise elder of mine once said, “throw the bums out.”
