Government of the people

In a time when it is fashionable to quote the Founding Fathers it would be well to understand their concept of government.They believed that the govenment should represent the people and not be governed by a king or professional politicians.They would serve for a short period of time ,and then return to their prior occupations.Their clear intention was to reflect the will of the people.Today the Congress is composed of professional politicians who are driven to be in that privileged position for life.The will of the majority of the people is regularly ignored,A case in point is the overwhelming majority of Americans that desire sane background checks.The citizens still believe in the desire of the founding Fathers but the majority of the Congess is driven by other compelling forces.I fear that the phrase”government by and for the people” has been replaced.
