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.

The art of herding sheep.
Sheep are perfectly fine with being fed the same shit by different farmers. Hence, politics.

A bunch of rich people in a room yelling at each other pretending to get things done, basically a big circle jerk on the people they represent.
Modern politics is a complete waste of time, and people would be better off electing a potato as their representative it would accomplish just as much as their current representatives do.

The most boring shit you will ever hear on the radio or view on the TV.
1) The political parties are all fucking boring.
2) The people involved in politics are dirty moneygrabbers.

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.

Politics is merely an art of convincing others to commit an act which is beneficial for yourself.
Political Parties convincing general public to vote for them ; which is ultimately beneficial for the political parties only. Here the art politics can be easily seen when the parties try to convince the general publi to vote for them.
