because they keep saying the same stuff over and over; rhetoric after rhetoric making empty promises. I see no difference between the mainstream Republicans and Democrats. Bunch of selfish individuals using speech writers saying things to attract voters so they can get voted into office. Their purpose: obviously to get elected. How? by bsing like salesmen.

Why do you insult salesmen, what have they ever done to you?

"Like" salesmen?

The politicians' main goal is election. In order to get elected you must sell yourself. We get carried away thinking that politicians are ideologues...
Beliefs in a nutshell:
- The Ends never justify the Means.
- Objectivity is secondary to subjectivity.
- The War on Drugs is the worst policy in the U.S.
- Most people worship technology as a religion.
- Computers will never become sentient.

You really don't understand do you? I don't care about your attention. You people get too comfortable agreeing with yourselves about stupid and false things. 'they're famous and have power, therefore they're all selfish crooks herp derp'....American aren't stupid. History has shown a very distinct paths for the country based on who was president and what political philosophy he enforced....this goes especially for social issues. This elections was one of the clearest divisions in that respect, and America clearly went in the Liberal direction. So the statement is just a lie.

This "X said something stupid" thing really needs to stop. It isn't stupid just because you think so. It isn't stupid just because you and your rightwing buddies agree that it is. You actually have to do something called "ar-guee-ing"...alright?

If you create the illusion of legitimate authority, you'll have rulers. If you cease to imagine this illusory authority, you see that other people don't have more rights than you do, and also that theft, harassment, kidnapping, and murder for what they are.

The same thing happens when you create the illusion of rights and when you cease to imagine them. After all, the concept of "rights" itself is an illusory authority.

This "X said something stupid" thing really needs to stop.

Perhaps a good way to make it stop would be to stop saying stupid things Ike. For instance, at the beginning of the post you said "You people get too comfortable agreeing with yourselves about stupid and false things", and then you tried to end the post by denouncing people who call things people say stupid. Face it, that"s just stupid.

It isn't stupid just because you think so.

Are you saying stupidity is not subjective, that there is objective stupidity? I"m sorry Ikey, but that would be another example of you saying something stupid.

It isn't stupid just because you and your rightwing buddies agree that it is. You actually have to do something called "ar-guee-ing"...alright?

What the hell is "ar-guee-ing", is that stupid for "arguing" perhaps? Once again, if you want the "X said something stupid" thing to stop, stop saying something stupid.

As Forrest Gump would say, "Stupid is as stupid does".

Yo Imabench! I"d like to nominate Ikey"s post for review and consideration for the next Weekly Stupid. The reason is that it starts out calling things people say stupid, and ends by denouncing calling things people say stupid, which isn"t just stupid, it"s comically stupid, at least top five stupid, maybe number one stupid even.

To a certain extent, all politicians are liars. Some are very good at lying whereas some are not. What is really important is if all these liars can keep their lies. If they can, then there is no problem for them to lie, and lies become promises. Voters are not electing saints to the Congress. It is not unreasonable to believe that some politicians are inherently selfish. But if their selfishness is compatible with the interests of general population, then there is no compelling reason to not pay attention to what those politicians have said.

In a way, it seems that all salesmen have a tendency to exaggerate the benefits of their products, if any.
