Difference between your kids and your representatives

Brilliant quote:

pages 191-192 of Steven Landsburg’s 2009 book The Big Questions: Your kids look to you for guidance, while your congressman looks to you only for votes. So, quite sensibly, you think a lot harder and more clearly about what you’ll tolerate from your kids than what you’ll tolerate from your congressman.

Makes you think, no? And frankly, looking at some of our representatives and mostly from the European and Indian representatives, I wouldn't frankly tolerate some of the behaviours that they exhibit.
