Why does it seem that all politicians are lying scumbags?
My cousin Keith was an MP. He was OK until you tried to pin him down to reasons why his party did what they had. Then he would prevaricate, obfuscate, bewilder and befuddle everyone with jargon, as though he was on the hustings... His funeral oration for his father took the biscuit being like something by Thucydides!

Mighty oak vs politician? Who wins the vote?
The mighty oak waves in nature's cool breezes. The politician waves in his own hot air.
The mighty oak has a lot of bark. The politician just barks a lot.
The mighty oak hangs many nuts. The politician hangs out with many nuts.
The mighty oak selectively seeks out pockets of fertile soil then digs its roots in deep for support. The politician cares less who's pockets they dig into as long as they are supported and the pockets are deep in "pay dirt".
A mighty oak becomes deadwood over many years. The politician becomes deadwood way before his time.
The mighty oak changes its colors and watches the chilly season slowly change with it. The politician changes his colors and in the blink of an eye, all hell seems to freeze over.
The mighty oak makes shade. The politician is just shady.

That is because appealing to the majority of people, in order to get elected, means telling different groups , different things.
The same candidate might go to a PRAYER breakfast, and rally against the "evils" of homosexuality......and his next meeting will be with an LGBT group, where he will VOW and swear to God, he will work hard on improving your rights.
Neither will be true, as he's probably hompsexual himself, .....but he won't improve your rights either.......as that would piss off the all important Bible belt votes.
Mike Pence is a good example.
Trump is another......going to Prayer Breakfasts, and holding the Bible..........while he's cheating on his pregant wife with porn stars and Playmate hookers.
Lying is simply inherent to getting elected.

Problem is, If all the politicians are lying scumbags, Where are all the good people of conscience, ready to step up and change things. If we elect the same corrupt politicians every time, That's like sending a message that we don't want change.

🥴 Lying is not a bad thing for politicians who know how to properly run a country.
So Idgaf. Trumps blunt honesty and gross misconduct? Risks our safety.
So I never thought I'd say this, but I would rather have an experienced and professional politician? Than a blunt buffoon who racks up a body count from gross speech.
