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.

A slowly expanding world wide blow out sale on human rights since 2001 A.D.
Politics declare war on <insert overblown reason> and slowly dismantle all your rights like free speech and the freedom of opinion for their paymasters from industry, economy and commerce.

In the United States and North Korea: The fine art of mindfucking the average citizen into believing logical fallacies and getting rewarded with money, power, fame, and a place in the history books for doing so.

Everywhere else: The fine art of governing a country.
George W. Bush: "Al Qaeda attacked us because they were jealous of our freedom!"

Normal person: *sheepishly accepts bullshit assertion*

Intelligent person: "So, Mr. President, you expect me to believe that a terrorist network with more than enough resources to instigate a revolution and try to install more democratic governments than those that currently exist in Iraq and Afghanistan, decided to, instead of taking this course of action, attack the United States, its greatest potential ally in a hypothetical struggle for freedom? You expect me to believe that they childishly lashed out at us instead of working toward achieving greater liberty like the adults they are? You expect me to believe that we Americans are such hot shit that the entire population of the Middle Eastern world is secretly jealous of us? And you expect me to believe that 9/11 WASN'T motivated by the violent US interventionism in the Middle East that has cost so many innocent lives in that region, or covert CIA bombings which claimed many lives and were performed on targets that we had little reason to believe were actually housing terrorists, and also not by the Zionist pro-Israel attitude that we have taken in every dispute between Israel and any other country in that region, despite the circumstances? You, sir, are a brazen liar and an asshole. Go fuck yourself, and everyone that believes your insidious brand of bullshit politics is retarded."

the quote-unquote "refined" art of speaking, often for long periods of time, without actually saying anything.
Democrats and Republicans alike are masters of the art of politics.
