The altruistic art of lifting about half of the money from each of our wallets every year and spending it with prudence, enlightenment and efficiency.
40% of our fellow adults are gleefully satisfied with the benevolent outcomes of this arrangement. You know this because when it’s election day, they don’t vote.
“I’m not going to vote, I hate politics.”
“Really? That’s amazing, I thought you loved politics. When I reach over the table and grab one fry from your plate you throw a complete conniption. But every year when your politicians take, in total, more than half of your hard-earned money, you don’t vote to do a thing about it. So I think you secretly love having a bunch of rich, old white men take your money and do whatever they want with it, no matter how demeaning and controlling their laws are to your life and to the lives of the people you love. That's quite a fetish you've got going on there, I hadn’t realized you were such a political submissive.”
Derived from the root word "poly" meaning "many" and "ticks" meaning "bloodsucking insects."
God, I hate politics.
I'm not getting involved in this.
Well you see, I'm voting for, well, uh, you see, I'm an Independent (Lie) and...well the system. Yeah, you gotta think about the system, consider voting these days and stuff. Say, what type of lube do you use for anal sex? I'd be much more comfortable talking about that than politics.
the most evil and destructive force known to man.
politics has and will always hurt more people than it helps.
if you don't know a way to fix the economy or improve local schools, please don't lie to the public
a place where causing hatred and fear are stronger tools than logic and morality.
Rather than being a forum to better the country, politics is more like 5 year olds arguing.
The system that governs the world. A system of cheating, lying, and scandal. Coming from the phrase poly, meaning many, and ticks, meaning bloodsucking parasites.
Something that shouldn't be talked about with family and friends, it goes along with religon and other controversial topics, it's a quick way to piss of people and get in a fight.
