“American politics had two fatal flaws - flaws that led to its downfall.  The first was corruption.  Politicians lied with almost every breath they mustered and didn’t hesitate to slit each others throats for gain.  They were whores willing to sell their vote to the highest bidder. ”
Richard Stephenson, Collapse

“Politicians lie with almost every breath they mustered, and didn't hesitate to slit each other's throats for gain. They were whores willing to sell their vote to the highest bidder. The second was ineffectiveness. Politicians did not represent the people who elected them. They might have held onto the delusion that they served the public, but the only thing they represented was big business”
