look up any word, like cunt:
 
20.
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.

Something that makes people feel like human affairs are important, despite the fact that our entire planet- nay; solar system- nay; galaxy could be wiped from existence without altering the universe in any perceptible manner.
Imagine spending your entire lifetime discussing a single electron orbiting a single hydrogen atom bonded in a single water molecule lining the digestive tract of a security guard at Kohl's with no consideration for anything else in the world. That is more or less what politics are like.

Politics is so annoying. Why can't we vote for scientists or economists instead of politicians.

A dick measuring contest between well-dressed chimps.
Politics (see: any campaign race) always winds up in the selection of what people hope is the least problematic leader.
