"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius

How are you going to force the other representatives to do what the person you voted for campaigned on?
Except to elect someone else in the next election.
Secondly. Those who are elected should be doing what is best for this country, if that coincides with what the people want, all the better.
But you should not be passing laws for the sole reason that it is what the people want.
That would be your deluded naivety.
We live in a Republic.
You not liking that does not change it.
You not liking the fact that people use their monies to lobby doesn't change that.
Third parties will only gain enough representation when they appeal to large enough masses to be elected. Which is the case each and every time they do get elected.
It is the way it should be.
