Politicians v's faith-healers

At Cafe Hayek Don Boudreaux gives us his view of politicians,
The general lesson here is that politicians are akin to faith-healers. Both pose as wizards; they use enchanting words to push crackpot potions. The faith-healer dupes his customers into believing that he will suspend medical reality; the politician dupes voters into believing that he will suspend economic reality. Both are frauds.
If only voters realised this fact.

Yes but what would they do? Where aren't the quacks in politics?
