Politics in this nation should have never been about politics.
It should have always only been about higher human enterprises. Truth, Justice, Honor, Honesty, Liberty, Human Rights, Equality, etc.
But because politics became, and remains, a pursuit of base and grasping power it can only produce the very lowest of animalistic ambitions; greed, avarice, corruption, crimes, and eventually, tyranny.
Until you tame the vice-laden and real aims of politics government will forever remain degenerate and diseased and destructive to the entire nation. And as long as government remains a degenerate, diseased, and destructive enterprise it must be overthrown and replaced with far better.
