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.”

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.

The least civilized form of man-on-man combat.
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.

A messed up system up electing people to lead an entire country when almost half the population doesn't even vote.
I wish a presidential candidate would tell everyone he wouldn't do anything in office...Then nothing wrong could really happen. Stupid politics...
