Politics is all about sucking up

To borrow terminology from South Park, you know how in every democracy, your only choice is between a giant douche and a turd sandwich? The same episode, “Douche and Turd”, had a character who said “It’s always between a giant douche and a turd sandwich. Nearly every election since the beginning of time has been between some douche and some turd. They’re the only people who suck up enough to make it that far in politics.

It might actually have some truth to it. As we know, politics is not about true power. It’s about lies, obeying certain interests (usually the interests of corporations), and kissing ass. The politicians who don’t do this, and instead speak for their own will and ideals, or for the benefit of the people, are eventually airbrushed out. Maybe not murdered, but at least made sure they can never have enough influence to change anything.

In America, politicians also have to suck up to Christians, and appease the Christian voting block in order to get far.

Every politician and the media want you to think that said politicians are good, powerful, on your side, and doing something, but when it comes down to it they’re all just rats in suits who get by on our own weakness and ignorance, and only get far by sucking up and using our ignorance.
