Politics Stinks

Howard Weliver’s “Politics Stink”Paraphrasing a comment I have often made, in other venues, it is my opinion that…

  • The divisive nature of partisan politics…
  • The capitalization of political campaigns beyond any rhyme or reason…
  • The personal power ambitions of those who seek public office…
  • Deliberate, concerted media distortion…

…effectively renders much of the American political process a farce. None of the aforementioned elements can be relied on to generate candidates with characters and value-systems exclusively devoted to fair and moral governance of the body politic, i.e., We The People.

In simpler terms, the American political system is corrupt, the politicians are mealy-mouthed, fork-tongued and two-faced at best, and mentally imbalanced megalomaniacs at worst.

Howard Weliver has pretty much summed it up visually, for me, with his painting, “Politics Stink” (upper right).
