The political games are dirty and long. The politicians don’t look for the best solution. They are looking for the solution that will make them look good and the opponent look bad.
Politicians hate when people start to use logic. They prefer when the people use their emotions. Logic is the enemy of anyone who over-promise things. When you use logic, you can see over their strategy of divide and conquer and what is their real goal.
So next time you are in a conflict discussion with another person, stop and ask yourself, are you really defending the politician or their policy? You will be surprised when you explore the policy of how it is ill thought and just tailored towards your emotion satisfaction.
