Politically Agnostic

The Two-Party Swindle aside, there doesn't seem to be enough evidence to support voting as a mechanism to choose leaders who have our best interests in mind to manage the nation. Greed is a powerful and blinding aphrodisiac and it alone entices both Democrats and Republicans alike to stay office, voting their so-called conscious. And because polarized issues divide, its easy to see why the political rallies aim for as much fervor as a Christian revival, and for the same reason - appealing to strong emotions to increase membership.

Then again, if the general public feels vindicated when their candidate wins, I suppose the dupe is on us. Given the stranglehold lobbyists seem to have over the entire process, I don't imagine any candidates' personal beliefs has anything to do with swaying public policy except to incite further subjective debate. But that's just it, isn't it? As long as dichotomous, dyed-in-the-wool, unyielding thinkers are voting dichotomous, dyed-in-the-wool, unyielding candidates into office, how could any semblance of leadership ever emerge? Instead we get this vacillating changing of the guard which celebrates finger-pointing over responsibility.

Politics are inherently broad in scope and far more complex than most of us will ever really comprehend. But a government of critical-thinking deniers, for critical-thinking deniers, by critical-thinking deniers means the system is working perfectly, and we're the ones who are flawed.
