    They Come Across As Self Absorbed and Greedy

    I live in South Africa, but this is really just my opinion , even when I watch the global news, so this is how I view politics in general. I think the whole political arena is just a huge cover up for a power greater than the puppets on a string. I read an article once on Skull...

    Seem to Only Look Out For Themselves

    With each passing day it becomes more clear that most of them make decisons based on who will get them re-elected.  No thought as to the affects of what they do to the whole is given.  Only thoughts to what it will gain for them and the group that will provide the most...

    Is There The Truth?

    "If voting changed anything, they'd make it illegal" Emma Goldman. When I saw this quote it really got me thinking. Where do we we draw the line between what "is" and what could be? Some people talk about the existence of secret societies such as Freemasons, Skull and Bones...

    I find it hard to trust anyone, espically if I do not know them personally so why should politicians be any different.

    Transpearancy & Accountability ... Yeah, Right!

    Liars! That's what they all are!

    They canvass your vote with promises and promises, and then get on the gravy train and steal us blind! Their policies ruin the economy, the environment and the strati of society. Francois Hollande, like Sarkozy, has his beak in the trough! They are only concerned with the...

    George Carlin Said Well When It Comes to Politicians.

    It has to be blamed on the morons who keep voting them in. He said it so much better than I ever could, and every election, I just remember the words:  >>Now, there's one thing you might have noticed I don't complain about: politicians. Everybody complains...

    You can tell there's a general election around

    the corner when the vague and illusory rhetoric of politicians starts to become ever more vague and illusory. I used to believe some of what politicians said, which was fine when they actually said something. Now I notice - more than ever - what isn't said, and the tactics used...

    Not a big fan of Obama!

    The middle class has suffered under his leadership. Last year GDP grew by over 300 billion dollars and 95% went to top one percent. That probably made republicans happy too. Since 1980 middle class has lost 40 % of their purchasing power. Few good years under Clinton. That's it...
