1. The profession of lying.

2. Politics is often a touchy subject because often people having differing political views - sometimes radical views - however, this doesen't mean you should insult others views (as insane as they may be).

3. Politics is the process of making decisions for groups. Politics if often a word used when referring to governments. It is one of the main causes of death in the world.
1. John Howard: "Interest rates will never go up in the forseeable future!"

Years later...

News reporter: "Yes, well in recent weeks we have noticed a significant rise in interest rates...."

2. See liberal.

3. North Korea's government leaders (Kim II Sung, Kim Jong-il) used politics to set up what is often called a totalitarian dictatorship, they set up propanga in their media, (the newspapers don't have "real" news, just anti-US propaganda) there is only one TV channel, which is all about Norh Korea's "Dear Leader", Kim Jong-il.

The "quest for communism" has often resulted in millions of deaths, (see Soviet Union) when in practice, Communism is an extremely difficult system to establish and to maintain. Communist governments often become repressive dictatorships, and the whole point of Communism (to have a classless society, businesses not being able to exploit the average worker, "utopian society") becomes skewed by the government's view of becoming the strongest nation in the world (again, see North Korea).

The main reason for politics being bad is human nature - greed.

One big mid-life crisis in which rich, balding middle-aged men compete for the approval of their nation in order to distract themselves from the fact that they are over the hill with no way of going back as they quickly tumble towards their death. The winner ends up in office being used as a puppet for his party to push their agenda while the loser retires to mediocrity and Rogaine.
Politics is a huge battle over who has the best hair and the most money... And political idealogies and crap like that, but who cares about that.

B: I gotta stop by my lawyer's office n politic for a minute but I'll get at you after.

A: You wanna go out tonight or just chill in the cut?
B: I'm gonna go out downtown to politic with some cats n get my name out there, maybe even shop the demo.

Proof that human beings are, indeed, dumbasses.
Typical politics in action:

Republican: My party's better than yours!
Democrat: No, my party's better!
Independent: Both of you shut the fuck up!

A stupid game where
a. A totalitarian assbag kills millions in the name of "the Nation"
b. Two groups of wealthy assbags argue about cell phones and censorship while trillions of dollars of debt is considered unimportant

The only similarity between the two is that either way, the citizens lose.
USA; China; 20th century Germany, Russia, and Italy; Greece; France, all are nations, all involve politics, no regular citizens win.
