how we are the lord of the flies

what is it about politics that attracts the most childish and immature people in our country?

what is it about politics that removes these people so far away from the world we're living in, no matter what party they belong to?

what is it about politics that all we hear nowadays is "i know you are but what am i?" and "sticks and stones may break my bones" instead of calm intelligent debate where people actually listen to each other?

why can't we move past "liar liar pants on fire"?

because we're the biggest idiots who keep on electing these assholes.

well, we get what we pay for.

Politicians are entrusted with our trust and well being, yet we can't trust them. That doesn't make any sense, does it? I don't care what they say, they are self-serving and egotistical. To a certain extent, politicians reflect the ethos of the populace. Regretably, we are who we elect. How else can you explain the madness of our selections? Oxymoron - Honest politician. Is lying and mudslinging the only way to get elected? I know I'm tired of the constant barrage of bullshit that we are subjected to every October. Now it is starting even earlier.
