Quote #733 - On Politics #OnPolitics

25 Jul, 2016

"Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies."

Groucho Marx

"We believe that to err is human. To blame it on someone else is politics."

Hubert Humphrey

"Democracy substitutes election by the incompetent many for appointment by the corrupt few."

George Bernard Shaw

"The true axis of evil in America is the brilliance of our marketing combined with the stupidity of our people."

Bill Maher

I am frustrated, disappointed, agitated.

They all lie. They're all corrupt. They're all political (which means they lie and they're corrupt--so, I repeat myself).

I'm not saying they're all equal--you know I'm not. All corruptions are not equivalent--and certainly all political positions are not equivalent. I continue to believe in what I have always believed in, and will support those politicians who come closest to those positions and who I believe can and will have the greatest effect moving this country forward.

But it's hard to defend anyone's behavior at a certain point.

They're all so frustrating and disappointing.

I turn to humor, the last refuge of those in despair.

Then maybe I can find my way back to hope.
