In a world where corruption is synonymous with power, only the most filthy and cutthroat of characters can reach the pinnacle. Where loopholes become the necessary course of action, and stepping over your adversaries is imperative to being a step ahead. Where the ice in your veins is as vital as the blood on your hands, and where the weak and the righteous are left disillusioned by their own moral facade. Where reality is just as harsh as it is unforgiving, and the illusion of truth is only as strong as the feeble minds that it occupies. So as the blood drips from their fingertips to the floor, let us never forget that there are always three pointing back. Welcome to the dirty game of politics, where the only clean thing are their suits and the only absolute is there are no absolutes.


Long-winded pretentious attempt filled with clichés aside -- What are you really crying about? The faux-outrage in a desperate search for vindication is as disingenuous as it is pathetic. Or are you truly oblivious to the true nature of things?


Reading comprehension required.

So it's fine for you to try and put yourself on an intellectual and moral pillar but no one else?

I put it in the mud pit for a reason, so go ahead and speak your mind.

You had me. Almost. Untill the very last line about reading comprehension. Otherwise it was very well spoken, but then you had to disrespect your readers. Never criticize your readers. Bad PR. Otherwise I will agree with what you wrote. Almost very well done. Too bad you blew it in the end.

Was your thread supposed to be about the Clintons? I am confused.

It might have been about some dirty bad boy who deserves nothing.

Western politics. Democracy, once a magnificent shining light for progressive societies, entire world wars exploded into action to protect it.
Now only a handful of the society seem to benefit from it, exploit it, use it...
It's beginning to sound like something else in history that people are just now realizing should never get out of hand. Or only in the hands of a few.

I feel slightly disrespected but I'm still smiling as I type this.

You got a S&F for starting strong and finishing stronger.

Drug dealers and prostitutes are far more trustworthy and honorable than politicians.

TL;DR version: The world is a horrible place and only the strong survive.

Despite what Ghandi might think, an eye for an eye only leads the world half blind.

I think we need to push the reset button rather sooner than later. Politics were always dirty but the sheer ruthlessness reached new heights since the last years. I'm already waiting for the scandal that will break Schulz and hand over Merkel the election for instance. Merkel is already in campaign mode and doubles down on the refugee crisis that she caused in the first place. Personally i loathe and hate her because she and her cronies care more about foreigners than our own people. It's frustrating to watch my country going down the drain with people smiling and cheering and pretending everything is fine.

Perhaps someone who is in the know has to step up and reveal the hidden truth to the world. All the secrets need to be exposed no matter the consequences. If i had the means and the knowledge i would do that in a heartbeat.

Drug dealers and prostitutes create themselves.

We create politicians by electing them.

What does that say about us?

This is the way it has always been since the dawn of time.

Ever watch the tv show, "Survivor"?

Treaties, pacts, backstabbing, alliances are made and lost on a whim.

I's a condition of the human animal. We are power mad and susceptible to corruption. We're an opportunistic animal.

To think that any of us are better and above the failings we often point out in politicians is the height of self-delusional hubris.

In my opinion.

The worst atrocities are committed by the best dressed people.

Gotta keep up appearances.

Premise from the start is world domination, nothing personal.
