    Because politics is an ongoing endeavour ro prevent right and correct things from being implemented and accomplished.

    War is a part of this: it enriches the people who own the politicians.

    George Bush and DICK Cheney remain free as fucking birds after being responsible for countless thousands of needless deaths.

    Sex scandals work beautifully to distract the populace, as was masterfully demonstrated during the Clinton debacle. (I say debacle because although he was technically impeached, he completed his second term and remained really popular with most normal people.

    One even occasionally saw "I miss Bill" stickers during the Dark Ages of Bush-Cheney.

    Politics like meaningless distractions to keep the air out of proper issues and to continue the ugly status quo.
