The real crime to me, from a somewhat detached yet interested viewpoint, is how all your politicians put their gain, if they already think loyal than maybe the party, before the wellbeing of the country, the people. Isn't that why we agreed we have a gouvernment? To serve and protect the population.
It seems to me this extreme form of capitalism has found its way into the gouvernment. Shouldn't they be separated?

And you need to stop lowering the bar, almost every day. I mean the way criticism is voiced lately it sounds like defamation.
It's not like WWIII is unavoidable. Or that you have to live with political opponents you hate. There are choices you can make.
But you have to face the fact that you as the common guy got no one to speak for you on the political stage. They're all only interested in themselves. First it's money after that it's power and a legacy. Since the pyramids. Only a certain type of people wants that kind of power and they don't want it to make your life better.
And yes that goes for almost all politicians, Trump is president, he too is a politician.
With the current pseudo monarchy in intervals corruption and favours for friends is natural, very human, but we can't allow that to go on.

This is maybe more a rant, but the underlying question is, how can you all get so hysterical and blind?
It's entirely irrelevant whom you vote in. And I am not against Trump, I supported two or three decisions he made, that's exactly the point. How can you just worship that man like a little groupie?
This is politics not the sandbox.
But I don't blame you, your entire political scene is low blows.
Just let me remind you the content is more important than the cover. How about you focus instead on that, what you want them to do for you.
Trump wants to be loved. This could be a great opportunity now with that kind of personality in power.
But I guess it's too exhausting to discuss actual issues. Just so easy to run around and get triggered by rumours about the presidents private life.

Some people are very informed daily in their jobs,they see the operations as they progress,have family,frriends in politics,as well as colleges universitys,then you have your lazy basement dweller ranting away,informed by a TV set,which is what I see here,you can try to justify your point,but you can't justify twisting or distorting the truth,then no one believes it,honesty is the best policy,can't argue about the truth

Stefan Molyneux exemplifies where most Trumpers on this forum are coming from.

Pre-Trump: Voting is irrelevant.

Trump-era: Four-hour video on the "MAGA Mindset."

These people have lost their minds. I hope they regain their sanity post-Trump.

This member gets it.

Well done Peeples. The partisans have destroyed political dialogue. The best they can offer for election is either Trump or Hillary.

I long for the day that they sit down, shut up, and let grown folks run the country again.

Expectation and Uninformed Opinion

Not exactly the same, but related. I was thinking about starting a thread, but if I piggy back on yours then I won't feel obliged to oversee the thread.

Back in my day, 70s through 90s, people were not expected to have an opinion on every facet of every imaginable situation that any individual was faced with any where on the planet. People were expected to be experts on their lives and the vocations they engaged in to support themselves and their dependents, and the social milieu they lived in.

Now-a-days, with social media, communicating with a global collection of numerous fragmented local and subcultural milieus, we are expected to have an informed opinion about everything related to anyone. I am not ashamed to admit that I am totally unfit to rise to that challenge.

I have been totally blind-sided by issues of which I was totally unaware of:

I was confronted by a peer in the early '80s with the issue of AIDs, demanding to know my position. I was like, "What's that?" She was like "It's a blood borne sexually transmitted disease that is killing people and becoming epidemic." My initial response was, "So it's not air borne or water borne so it's avoidable."

She didn't care much for that, and seemed quite appalled. Long story short, she really was concerned with whether I thought U.S. tax money should be used for medical research grants and public health clinics. "Well sure, I don't mind paying for experts in their fields to deal with problems too big for me to deal with personally."

What I expect from politicians is a certain experience and expertise in listening to, learning of, categorizing, and prioritizing many concerns of many people and groups of people (constituents), and in turn working with their peers(politicians) to come up with policies and legislation to address solutions for the common good.

The ability to wheel and deal for personal gain isn't expertise in political art and science for the common good.
