I’m a Capitalist @FreeMarketsFan I know you don’t like news/politics, but are most politicians bad at math, liars or both?
You asked two questions but I’ll give you three answers:
A) All politicans are good at math. They know how to count votes and quickly percentages. They know how to add money. They know how much money equals how many votes. So they are all great at basic math.
B) They are ALL liars. Challenge: can you name me one President, just ONE, since George Washington, that is not on record lying at some point to his constituents.
Your question is an opportunity and its rhetorical. Yes politicans are bad, stupid, annoying, evil, corrupt, do bad things to us, rape us at night, whatever.
Yes, yes, yes.
And yet, the people who ignore politicians create billion dollar companies. The people who ignore protests that accomplish nothing (because you can’t fight DC) end up being happier.
Don’t let politics block you from happiness today.
