Politics makes more sense if you realize that every US president after Eisenhower has been a cult leader with whom 30% of the population would agree no matter what they said or did. All government is corrupt. (+1)

Ya might want to smoke less cat shit. Not "ALL." There are good and bad people in every walk of life.

You might be right, but no one is as corrupt as our president.

They all just play to their base.

Sounds like you have a low regard for people in general.
I do wish we could get more people to utilize their right to vote.
says Budwick on Jun 14th 18 (#2778537)
Why? Voting does not good, it only encourages them. Doesn't mean anything anyway, electoral college just votes however they want.

You wish what you want.
I'll wish for what's right.
says Budwick on Jun 14th 18 (#2778724)
Huh? What are you talking about? Who mentioned wishing in the first place?
says Flrdsgns on Jun 14th 18 (#2778731)
Not at all. I have low regard for people who want power over others. I have low regard for people who bow down to them.
I have high regard for people who understand that being governed is the opposite of being free. The less government we have the freer we are.

Anarchist! Got it.
Good luck with that.

It makes even more sense if you hit yourself on the head three times while on high power blotter acid and then stare at a modernist expression painting that no one really gets but they're too pretentious to admit that

No need to trip out, just open your eyes. 30% is probably a low number given that 1/2 the people have IQs lower than 100.

I believe politics in general is just show business for the elderly. Bunch of geezers wanting to get in front of the camera and yammer on and on.

About half ot the politicians you see on the camera can't be described as "people".
We are being run by shadow governments. And people? Yeah, you wish.

The president has some influence, but he does not need to be corrupt and he is not a leader. The president is about like the figurehead on the bow of a ship: he has no control over where the ship of state goes, but he is always the first person to arrive at the scene.
