Politics

“A people that elect corrupt politicians, imposters, thieves and traitors are not victims…But accomplices.”

George Orwell

“Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.”

Groucho Marx

“Politics: A strife of interests masquerading as a contest of principles. The conduct of public affairs for private advantage.”

Ambrose Bierce
