They represent their own self interests.
This is worth repeating-the early congress were responsible for very few constituents compared to today. Things like districts, remapping, listening tours, precincts did not exist like they do today. They knew what their voters were interested in because well, they knew them.
There is absolutely no way, and this is proven with each new law and bill written, that your congressman or woman can honestly represent you.
A congressman for 20,000 people can do a much better job than he can for 3 million.
Just as what the government in Chicago does can affect a podunk little town on the Illinois/Kentucky border, our country is also trying to control everyone from just a few buildings along the NE edge of the United States.

Yes, and yet they openly bend, break, flaunt and recreate it. You say you don't like it, well you can sue them using your own money while they defend themselves against you using your own money.
Being able to hold individual office holders personally accountable would go aways towards slowing down the tyranny.
