    in the history of mankind.

    The day when politics becomes an honest intellectual exercise in substantive discussion about important issues of the day is like...when has that ever been the case? Especially in a democracy.

    From the day when the first biggest caveman said to the group "Hey guys...know what...I should be in charge" politics has been a game of lies, deceptions, brute force, ulterior motives, and intrigue. Comes with the territory. That's why honest men, truly honest men, don't go into it.

    Those politicians that truly want to do good accept this. Politicians that truly want to do evil accept this. It is as much a part of the human condition as falling in love.
