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.”

politics is everywhere

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.

A game without rules.
It's called "politics", not "the Olympics".

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.
