Politics in a Cynical Age

We are bombarded daily with how bad it all is. The news media seems to revel in it. So it's easy to get the idea that all politicians are liars and con artists who just say whatever they have to so they can capture our vote.

Well, I just want to point out that the news media are of the opinion that they have to have controversy, harm, big names, sex and other such nonsense in their stories or we won't read or listen to 'em. So that becomes the diet we are force fed. The truth is that the liars and con artists are in the minority and most politicians are there because they want to make a difference for people. So when the BS starts flying in the months leading up to the election, just remember that.
