Deja vu all over again

"Trust No One"

Sir -- He brings a lot of joy whenever he leaves the room. If you see two people talking and one looks bored, he's the other one. He would argue with a signpost. Has a high opinion of himself due to the low standards he sets. Need I even introduce this topic? It's our long-lost cousin we meet every five years. I, Politico.

Why can't politicians answer a simple question simply? So, let's rephrase the question. Why do we, the public, the citizens, the taxpayers believe a politician from any party, when we know he or she is probably lying? We listen to them, then when they don't deliver on their programmes, we act disgusted or surprised and point fingers. Then in the next election we listen to more lies, elect that person, complain, point fingers. History repeats itself again and again.

So, aren't we just as bad as the politicians, because we believe their campaigns. As if replacing ventriloquists with different ventriloquists will change anything in bankrupt land. Remember that we dance while Brussels and Europe compose the music. Whatever puppets we elect are just marionettes dangling on strings pulled by the men in black. However, we could all use a little harmless fun. Let's just not take it too seriously.
