A seduction into power. A candidate promises all kinds of bullshit to increase their appeal and convince the blissfully ignorant to vote for them. Once in power they have everything they need and therefore don't have to give a damn about the masses anymore. as well as this all the bullshit they promised beforehand is revealed to be: bullshit, much to the dismay of voters. Strangely the majority doesn't seem to catch on about this, and this method has been utilised to the same effect ever since.
Political elections are bullshit. Next time you see the successor to the throne preaching about how much better your lives are going to be once they're in the power palace, get out there and hunt these traitors down, hang them for deceiving the public and take back the money they were taking off you to fund the austerity brigade, arms dealers, media circus, conformity agents and the domination state.
