The notion that politicians are evil is a notion I hate.
Politicians only tell you what you want to hear.
I pretty much try to remain as secular as possible on this blog because I know how it feels to be preached at. This topic however clearly demands for a definition of right and wrong.
First off, there is no such thing as right and wrong unless you can accept the existence of a higher power.
If you are willing to do so then okay, maybe there is an argument to be made for the corruption and the lying that goes on in politics. That is an absolutely pointless and ignorant conversation to have though.
The fact is that corruption and deceit exist, and they aren’t going anywhere any time soon.
So the next time you get it rammed up your ass by a politician, take a step back and think, “Why didn’t I see this coming?”
IT IS OUR DUTY AS CITIZENS OF THIS CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC TO KNOW WHO THE CANDIDATES ARE!
This means how they vote, who they talk to, who donates to them, and what their proposed policies are.
WE ARE THEN TO VOTE ACCORDINGLY WITH WHAT WE BELIEVE!
We have to critically analyze not only who are candidates are as people, but also the things they propose we do. Politicians want to be elected, so all of the things they say are going to be things that sound nice. Your job is to decide if the things they say make sense.
And when you fail to do so, you deserve the consequences.
Realize that all the warm and fuzzy lies they tell us, are a direct result of our ignorance and selfishness.
Tell me in the comments if you believe it is more complicated than that.
