Sadly, politics goes way beyond its basic definition. Political and Government corruption is as deadly and destructive as wars. Citizens have very little control in the decision process. Power is in the hands of the wealthy who care more about money then people. In order to correct the defects in politics and in democracy, we need to make many improvements in education, and we need to improve how the public is informed through our media outlets, which at the moment, wants to entertain, distract and manipulate people instead of educating people about the facts. We have a lot of work to do. We must educate ourselves in order to free ourselves from the abuses of politics.

Utilitarianism is a theory in normative ethics holding that the best moral action is the one that maximizes Utility and the well-being of sentient entities.

Egalitarianism is a trend of thought that favors equality for all people. Egalitarian doctrines maintain that all humans are equal in fundamental worth or social status.

Democracy


Direct Democracy is a form of pure democracy in which people decide (e.g. vote on, form consensus on) policy initiatives directly. This differs from the majority of modern Western-style democracies, which are representative democracies.

Inclusive Democracy is a project that aims for direct democracy; economic democracy in a stateless, moneyless and marketless economy; self-management (democracy in the social realm); and ecological democracy.

Participatory Democracy where the people are in power and thus that all democracies are participatory. Emphasizes the broad participation of constituents in the direction and operation of political systems. Participatory democracy strives to create opportunities for all members of a population to make meaningful contributions to decision-making, and seeks to broaden the range of people who have access to such opportunities. Since so much information must be gathered for the overall decision-making process to succeed, technology may provide important forces leading to the type of empowerment needed for participatory models, especially those technological tools that enable community narratives and correspond to the accretion of knowledge. Effectively increasing the scale of participation, and translating small but effective participation groups into small world networks, are areas currently being studied. Other advocates have emphasized the importance of face to face meetings, warning that an overreliance on technology can be harmful.

Open Democracy - Non-Open Governing

E-Democracy, also known as digital democracy or Internet democracy, incorporates 21st-century information and communications technology to promote democracy. It is a form of government in which all adult citizens are presumed to be eligible to participate equally in the proposal, development, and creation of laws. E-democracy encompasses social, economic and cultural conditions that enable the free and equal practice of political self-determination. Electronic Voting in Estonia in 2001 with the "e-minded" coalition government. Estonia became the first nation to hold legally binding general elections over the Internet with their pilot project for the municipal elections in 2005. The electronic voting system withstood the test of reality and was declared a success by Estonian election officials. The Estonian parliamentary election in 2007 also used internet voting, another world first. The Estonian internet voting system builds on the Estonian ID card. The card is a regular and mandatory national identity document as well as a smart card allowing for both secure remote authentication and legally binding digital signatures by using the Estonian state supported public key infrastructure. As of March 2007 over 1.08 million cards have been issued (out of a population of about 1.32 million). Bit-Coin Technology is another way to secure communications, but we should always use paper ballots delivered in person so that we can confirm accuracy and also have a backup when needed.

Economic Democracy shift decision-making power from corporate managers and corporate shareholders to a larger group of public stakeholders that includes workers, customers, suppliers, neighbors and the broader public.

Responsible Government is a conception of a system of government that embodies the principle of parliamentary accountability.

Governance refers to "all of processes of governing, whether undertaken by a government, market or network, whether over a family, tribe, formal or informal organization or territory and whether through the laws, norms, power or language." It relates to "the processes of interaction and decision-making among the actors involved in a collective problem that lead to the creation, reinforcement, or reproduction of social norms and institutions.

Politics


Political Science is a social science discipline that deals with systems of government, and the analysis of political activity and political behavior. It deals extensively with the theory and practice of politics which is commonly thought of as determining of the distribution of power and resources. Political scientists "see themselves engaged in revealing the relationships underlying political events and conditions, and from these revelations they attempt to construct general principles about the way the world of politics works." Political science is related to and draws upon the fields of economics, law, sociology, history, philosophy, geography, psychology, and anthropology. Polity - Regionalism

Politics is the process of making uniform decisions applying to all members of a group. More narrowly, it refers to achieving and exercising positions of governance — organized control over a human community, particularly a state. Furthermore, politics is the study or practice of the distribution of power and resources within a given community (a usually hierarchically organized population) as well as the interrelationship(s) between communities. Politics presents one of the ten function systems of modern societies. Politician is a person active in party politics, or a person holding or seeking office in government.

Realism (international Relations) is when states are the central actors in international politics rather than individuals or
international organizations. No actor should exist above states. States and the people within the state should be capable of regulating their own interactions; States must arrive at relations with other states on their own, rather than it being dictated to them by some higher controlling entity. The international political system is anarchic as there should be no supranational authority that can enforce rules over the states and the people who reside in those states. All actors in the international political system need to be rational about their actions to maximize their own Self-Preservation.

Logan Act is a United States federal law that forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments having a dispute with the U.S.

Political System is a system of politics and government. It is usually compared to the legal system, economic system, cultural system, and other social systems. However, this is a very simplified view of a much more complex system of categories involving the questions of who should have authority and what the government's influence on its people and economy should be.

Informed Consent is a process for getting permission based upon a clear appreciation and understanding of the facts, implications, and consequences of an action. The individual concerned must have adequate reasoning faculties and be in possession of all relevant facts.

Why is there is no specific education requirements to be a politician? They only need to meet a specific age, and be a citizenship, and have state status. But what kind of high paying important job would have no specific job requirements, you have to be a total freaking moron to think this is a good idea, but here we are. The fact that we don't have education requirements for politicians is just sickening. There is no resume that proves that they have the experience, or the necessary training, or the necessary education that would make them qualified and competent enough to fulfill the responsibilities of their job. We are sending children to do Men's work. And every time you see them speak, they all have "Horrible Education" written all over their faces. So what would be the perfect resume to have if you were applying for president, or any other level of government? We need to define the courses, the training, and the experiences that are needed, that would produce the most intelligent, and the most skilled person for the job. Then we will see a government for the people, without the all the corruption and waste. Now there's a law you should pass. A law that will keep your ignorance from repeating itself, that's a good law. No Politician Left Behind.

People should be evaluated by their proven skills and by an accurate measurement of their education level. People should never be measured by the size of their wallet, because any moron could have money, and any moron can be given money by criminals.

"Any moron can run for office, that's why there's so many morons in politics. We need some form of universal training that lets the public know that this person is qualified and competent."

Meritocracy is power that should be vested in individuals almost exclusively based on ability and talent. Advancement in such a system is based on performance measured through examination and/or demonstrated achievement in the field where it is implemented.

Qualifications-Based Selection is a procurement process for public agencies to use for the selection of architectural and engineering services for public construction projects. It is a competitive contract procurement process whereby consulting firms submit qualifications to a procuring entity (owner) who evaluates and selects the most qualified firm, and then negotiates
the project scope of work, schedule, budget, and consultant fee. (We can also use this selection process for political offices).

Brooks Act requires that Governments (people) select engineering and architecture firms (or politicians) based upon their
competency, qualifications and experience rather than by price (or by the votes a person gets).

Curriculum Vitae is a written overview of a person's experience and other qualifications for a job opportunity. In some countries, a CV is typically the first item that a potential employer encounters regarding the job seeker and is typically used to screen applicants, often followed by an interview.

Qualifications for Professional Social Work are those who hold a professional degree in social work, registration or licensure of people working as social workers is required and there are mandated qualifications. Proposal for Work (PDF)

Licensure means a restricted practice or a restriction on the use of an occupational title, requiring a license. A license created under a "practice act" requires a license before performing a certain activity, such as driving a car on public roads or holding a public office. A license is having permission as well as to the document recording that permission. The license to be a politician must be renewed so that if they have to many violations, they cannot a hold public position of authority.

Almost every politician is a bad investment. Citizens need to invest in the most educated people they have. We need to stop voting for the most favored person of the wealthy, and start voting for the most educated and skilled person that represents the needs of the citizens, and not just the needs of the wealthy or powerful.

Continuity of Government is the principle of establishing defined procedures that allow a government to continue its essential
operations in case of nuclear war or other catastrophic event.

Line-item Veto is the power of an executive authority to nullify or cancel specific provisions of a bill, usually a budget appropriations bill, without vetoing the entire legislative package. The line-item vetoes are usually subject to the possibility of legislative override as are traditional Veto's, which is the power (used by an officer of the state, for example) to unilaterally stop an official action, especially the enactment of legislation.

Rider (legislation)  is an additional provision added to a Bill or other measure under the consideration by a legislature, having little connection with the subject matter of the bill. Riders are usually created as a tactic to pass a controversial provision that would not pass as its own bill. Occasionally, a controversial provision is attached to a bill not to be passed itself but to prevent the bill from being passed (in which case it is called a wrecking amendment or poison pill, or politicians acting like scumbag criminals.). This is the same as Extortion and Collusion. Red-Tape - Loop-Hole

Corruption

Political Corruption is the use of powers by government officials for illegitimate private gain, that are clearly forbidden by law. The Lack of integrity or honesty (especially susceptibility to bribery); The use of a position of trust for dishonest gain.

Violation is an act in disregard of laws, rules, contracts, or promises. A disrespectful act. The action of violating someone or something. An act that disregards an agreement, oath or a right.

American Anti-Corruption Act is a piece of model legislation designed to limit the influence of money in American politics by
overhauling lobbying, transparency, and campaign finance laws. It was crafted in 2011. Provisions cover three areas: Stop political bribery by overhauling lobbying and ethics laws. End secret money by dramatically increasing transparency. Give every voter a voice by creating citizen-funded elections. The AACA's authors state that its provisions are based on existing laws that have withstood court challenges, and are therefore likely constitutional. Anti Corruption Act

Title of Nobility Clause, or the Emoluments Clause, prohibits the Federal government from granting titles of nobility, and restricts members of the government from receiving gifts, emoluments, offices or titles from foreign states without the consent of the United States Congress. It was designed to shield the republican character of the United States against so–called "corrupting foreign influences". This shield is reinforced by the corresponding prohibition on state titles of nobility in Article I, Section 10, and more generally by the Republican Guarantee Clause in Article IV, Section 4.

Executive Privilege is another word for corruption. But criminals claim the President of the United States and other members of the executive branch to resist certain subpoenas and other interventions by the legislative and judicial branches of government to access information and personnel relating to the executive branch.

Obstruction of Justice refers to the crime of obstructing prosecutors or other (usually government) officials.
Hatch Act of 1939 prohibits employees in the executive branch of the federal government, except the president, vice-president, and certain designated high-level officials of that branch, from engaging in some forms of political activity.
Whistleblowing

Ineligibility Clause is to protect separation of powers by ensuring that no member of the Executive or judicial branches of the federal government of the United States could simultaneously serve in the Legislative Branch and to prevent Congress from conspiring to create offices or increase federal officials' salaries with the expectation that members of Congress would later be appointed to these posts.
Separation of Powers is having each of the three branches would have defined abilities to check the powers of the other branches. This idea was called separation of powers. (Except it doesn't work when they are secretly under Collusion, which is
a secret understanding between two or more persons to gain something illegally, to defraud another of his or her rights, or to appear as adversaries though in agreement).

People who want to maintain the status quo can be seen as being resistant to progress.

Accessory (legal term) is a person who assists in the commission of a crime, but who does not actually participate in the commission of the crime as a joint principal. The distinction between an accessory and a principal is a question of fact and degree: The principal is the one whose acts or omissions, accompanied by the relevant mens rea (Latin for "guilty mind"), are the most immediate cause of the actus reus (Latin for "guilty act"). If two or more people are directly responsible for the actus reus, they can be charged as joint principals (see common purpose). The test to distinguish a joint principal from an accessory is whether the defendant independently contributed to causing the actus reus rather than merely giving generalised and/or limited help and encouragement.

Means, Motive, and Opportunity is three aspects of a crime that must be established before guilt can be determined in a criminal proceeding.
Means refer to the ability of the defendant to commit the crime.
Motive is the reason the defendant committed the crime.
Opportunity is whether the defendant had the chance to commit the crime.
Crime Opportunity is a theory that suggests that offenders make rational choices and thus choose targets that offer a high reward with little effort and risk. The occurrence of a crime depends on two things: the presence of at least one motivated offender who is ready or willing to engage in a crime, and the conditions of the environment in which that offender is situated, to wit, opportunities for crime. All crimes require opportunity but not every opportunity is followed by crime.
Routine Activity Theory says that crime is relatively unaffected by social causes such as poverty, inequality and unemployment. For instance, after World War II, the economy of Western countries was booming and the Welfare states were expanding. Despite this, crime rose significantly during this time. According to Felson and Cohen, the reason for the increase is that the prosperity of contemporary society offers more opportunities for crime to occur; there is much more to steal.

Accomplice is a person who actively participates in the commission of a crime, even if they take no part in the actual criminal offense. For example, in a bank robbery, the person who points the gun at the teller and asks for the money is guilty of armed robbery. Anyone else directly involved in the commission of the crime, such as the lookout or the getaway car driver, is an accomplice, even if in the absence of an underlying offense keeping a lookout or driving a car would not be an offense.
Duped is to be fooled or hoaxed. A person who is tricked or swindled.
Patsy
is a person who is gullible and easy to take advantage of.

Kleptocracy "rule by thieves" is a term applied to a government seen as having a particularly severe and systemic problem with officials or a ruling class (collectively, kleptocrats) taking advantage of corruption to extend their personal wealth and political power.

Perjury is the intentional act of swearing a false oath or of falsifying an affirmation to tell the truth, whether spoken or in writing, concerning matters material to an official proceeding.
Making False Statements which generally prohibits knowingly and willfully making false or fraudulent statements, or concealing information, in "any matter within the jurisdiction" of the federal government of the United States, even by mere denial.

Corruption is a form of dishonest or unethical conduct by a person entrusted with a position of authority, often to acquire personal benefit. Corruption may include many activities including bribery and embezzlement, though it may also involve practices that are legal in many countries. Government, or 'political', corruption occurs when an office-holder or other governmental employee acts in an official capacity for personal gain.  Ethics - Morality

Democide is the murder of any person or people by their government, including genocide, politicide and mass murder". For example, government-sponsored killings for political reasons would be considered democide under Rummel's hypothesis. Democide can also include deaths arising from "intentionally or knowingly reckless and depraved disregard for life"; this brings into account many deaths arising through various neglects and abuses, such as forced mass starvation. Rummel explicitly excludes battle deaths in his definition. Capital punishment, actions taken against armed civilians during mob action or riot, and the deaths of noncombatants killed during attacks on military targets so long as the primary target is military, are not considered democide. Ecocide
Collateral Damage a term for deaths, injuries, or other damage inflicted on an unintended target.
Damages are an award, typically of money, to be paid to a person as compensation for loss or injury.

Misconduct is wrongful, improper, or unlawful conduct motivated by premeditated or intentional purpose or by obstinate indifference to the consequences of one's acts.
Negligence is a failure to exercise reasonable care when you act by taking account of the potential harm you might foreseeably cause to other people.
Precautionary Principle - Risk.
Hazard is a situation that poses a level of threat to life, health, property, or environment. Hazards can be dormant or potential, with only a theoretical risk of harm; however, once a hazard becomes "active", it can create an emergency. A hazardous situation that has come to pass is called an incident. Hazard and possibility interact together to create risk.

Diminished Responsibility is a potential defense by excuse by which defendants argue that although they broke the law, they should not be held fully criminally liable for doing so, as their mental functions were "diminished" or impaired. Diffusion
Plausible Deniability is the ability for persons (typically senior officials in a formal or informal chain of command) to Deny knowledge of or responsibility for any damnable actions committed by others (usually subordinates in an organizational hierarchy) because of a lack of evidence that can confirm their participation, even if they were personally involved in or at least willfully ignorant of the actions.
Extenuating Circumstances refers to circumstances that excuse somebody from a punishment they would receive under normal conditions. Double Standard
Superior Orders is a plea in a court of law that a person—whether a member of the military, law enforcement, a firefighting force, or the civilian population—not be held guilty for actions which were ordered by a superior officer or an official.
Idealization and Devaluation is when an individual is unable to integrate difficult feelings, specific defenses are mobilized to overcome what the individual perceives as an unbearable situation. The defense that helps in this process is called splitting. Splitting is the tendency to view events or people as either all bad or all good. When viewing people as all good, the individual is said to be using the defense mechanism idealization: a mental mechanism in which the person attributes exaggeratedly positive qualities to the self or others. When viewing people as all bad, the individual employs devaluation: attributing exaggeratedly negative qualities to the self or others.
Splitting is the failure in a person's thinking to bring together the dichotomy of both positive and negative qualities of the self and others into a cohesive, realistic whole. It is a common defense mechanism used by many people.

Public Choice is how political decision-making results in outcomes that conflict with the preferences of the general public.

Revolving Door (politics) unhealthy relationship can develop between the private sector and government, based on the granting of reciprocated privileges to the detriment of the nation and can lead to regulatory capture.

Corporate Welfare is when corporations believe that they deserve to receive an opportunity or reward, like corporate subsidies government money grants, tax breaks, tax loopholes, or other special favorable treatment on corporations or selected corporations.

State Capture is a type of systemic political corruption in which private interests significantly influence a state's decision-making processes to their own advantage through unobvious channels, that may not be illegal. The influence may be through a range of state institutions, including the legislature, executive, ministries and the judiciary. It is thus similar to regulatory capture but differs through the wider variety of bodies through which it may be exercised and because, unlike regulatory capture, the influence is never overt.

Regulatory Capture is a form of government failure that occurs when a regulatory agency, created to act in the public interest,
instead advances the commercial or political concerns of special interest groups that dominate the industry or sector it is charged with regulating. When regulatory capture occurs the interests of firms or political groups are prioritised over the interests of the public, leading to a net loss to society as a whole. Government agencies suffering regulatory capture are called "captured agencies".

Iron Triangle comprises the policy-making relationship among the congressional committees, the bureaucracy, and interest
groups.

Rent-Seeking involves seeking to increase one's share of existing wealth without creating new wealth. Rent-seeking results in
reduced economic efficiency through poor allocation of resources, reduced actual wealth creation, lost government revenue, increased income inequality, and (potentially) national decline. Attempts at capture of regulatory agencies to gain a coercive monopoly can result in advantages for the rent seeker in the market while imposing disadvantages on (incorrupt) competitors. The idea was originated by Gordon Tullock and the term was coined by Anne Krueger.

Kickback (bribery) is a form of negotiated bribery in which a commission is paid to the bribe-taker in exchange for services
rendered. Generally speaking, the remuneration (money, goods, or services handed over) is negotiated ahead of time. The kickback varies from other kinds of bribes in that there is implied collusion between agents of the two parties, rather than one party extorting the bribe from the other. The purpose of the kickback is usually to encourage the other party to cooperate in the illegal scheme.

Bank Fraud is the use of potentially illegal means to obtain money, assets, or other property owned or held by a financial institution, or to obtain money from depositors by fraudulently posing as a bank or other financial institution.

Polarization (politics) occurs when there are stark partisan or ideological divides, even if opinion is polarized only on a few issues. Political Nihilism

Filibuster is where a debate over a proposed piece of legislation is extended, allowing one or more members to delay or entirely prevent a vote on the proposal. It is sometimes referred to as "talking out a bill" or "talking a bill to death" and characterized as a form of obstruction in a legislature or other decision-making body.

Hypocrisy is a false appearance of virtue or goodness, while concealing real character or inclinations. Deceiving.

Oxymoron is a figure of speech that joins two words together that are complete opposites of each other and thus contradict each other, like the phrase "Military Intelligence". Meanings
Paradox is a statement that, despite apparently sound reasoning from true premises, leads to a self-contradictory or a logically unacceptable conclusion. Some "Logical Paradoxes" are known to be invalid arguments. Propaganda
Doubt characterizes a status in which the mind remains suspended between two contradictory propositions and unable to assent to either of them. Doubt on an emotional level is indecision between belief and disbelief. Doubt involves uncertainty, distrust or lack of sureness of an alleged fact, an action, a motive, or a decision. Doubt questions a notion of a perceived "reality", and may involve delaying or rejecting relevant action out of concerns for mistakes or faults or appropriateness. (compare paradox). Denying

Doublethink is the act of simultaneously accepting two mutually contradictory beliefs as correct, often in distinct social contexts. 

Double Bind is an emotionally distressing dilemma in communication in which an individual (or group) receives two or more conflicting messages, and one message negates the other. This creates a situation in which a successful response to one message results in a failed response to the other (and vice versa), so that the person will automatically be wrong regardless of response. The double bind occurs when the person cannot confront the inherent dilemma, and therefore can neither resolve it nor opt out of the situation.

Conflict of Interest is when a person or organization has their decisions corrupted because they have multiple business relationships. So there is a risk that decisions can be manipulated by other business relationships instead of having decisions based on facts and fairness.

State-Corporate Crime refers to crimes that result from the relationship between the policies of the state and the policies and practices of commercial corporations.

Shill is a person who publicly helps or gives credibility to a person or organization without disclosing that they have a close relationship with the person or organization. Shills can carry out their operations in the areas of media, journalism, marketing or other business areas. A shill may also act to discredit opponents or critics of the person or organization in which they have a vested interest through character assassination or other means.

Anti-Nepotism policies exist to ensure that individuals can't show favoritism on the basis of family relationship. A public official may not appoint, employ, promote, advance, or advocate for appointment, employment, promotion, or advancement, in or to a civilian position in the agency in which he is serving or over which he exercises jurisdiction or control any individual who is a relative of the public official. But scumbag politicians favor bribes from lobbyists, so this is just another thing that politicians will find a away to get around this rule.
Cronyism is the practice of partiality in awarding jobs and other advantages to friends or trusted colleagues, especially in politics and between politicians and supportive organizations. For instance, this includes appointing "cronies" to positions of authority, regardless of their qualifications. Corporate Cronyism

Bid Rigging is a form of fraud in which a commercial contract is promised to one party even though for the sake of appearance several other parties also present a bid. This form of collusion is illegal in most countries. It is a form of price fixing and market allocation, often practiced where contracts are determined by a call for bids, for example in the case of government construction contracts. Bid rigging almost always results in economic harm to the agency which is seeking the bids, and to the public, who ultimately bear the costs as taxpayers or consumers.

Deception is the act of propagating beliefs in things that are not true, or not the whole truth (as in half-truths or omission). Deception can involve dissimulation, propaganda, and sleight of hand, as well as distraction, camouflage, or concealment. There is also self-deception, as in bad faith.

Blind Trust is a trust in which the fiduciaries, namely the trustees or those who have been given power of attorney, have full discretion over the assets, and the trust beneficiaries have no knowledge of the holdings of the trust and no right to intervene in their handling. Blind trusts are generally used when a settlor (sometimes called a trustor or donor) wishes to keep the beneficiary unaware of the specific assets in the trust, such as to avoid conflict of interest between the beneficiary and the investments. Politicians or others in sensitive positions often place their personal assets (including investment income) into blind trusts, to avoid public scrutiny and accusations of conflicts of interest when they direct government funds to the private sector.

Secrecy

More Corruption (notes)

Distrust is a formal way of not trusting any one party too much in a situation of grave risk or deep doubt. It is commonly expressed in civics as a division or balance of powers, or in politics as means of validating treaty terms. Systems based on distrust simply divide the responsibility so that checks and balances can operate. The phrase "Trust, but verify" refers specifically to distrust.

Austerity is a set of economic policies implemented with the aim of reducing government budget deficits. Policies grouped under the term 'austerity measures' may include spending cuts, tax increases, or a mixture of both, and may be undertaken to demonstrate the government's fiscal discipline to creditors and credit rating agencies by bringing revenues closer to expenditures.

Clerical Error is an error on the part of an office worker, often a secretary or personal assistant. It is a phrase which can also be used as an excuse to deflect blame away from specific individuals, such as high powered executives, and instead redirect it to the more anonymous clerical staff.

Politicians spend way to much time fundraising and not enough time doing the job that they were paid to do. Imagine calling your boss (the tax payer) and saying "I'm not coming to work today because I'm going fundraising." And your boss says "but you're paid to work here, you're not paid to go looking for money from people who want to keep you from doing your job or keep you from doing what is right". Besides, that money will not make you do your job better, and worse, because you're not at work, the job that you're paid to do does not get done, so every citizen is victimized and marginalized.  You're an ignorant criminal.

Our political leaders are incredibly ignorant, still using the word 'Economy' to explain their incompetence. Money over people is their motto, but they will lie to your face and tell you that it's actually 'Development'. Ignorant and corrupt people will never be able to make improvements. And when they say that they're going to create "A Task Force, or a Commission", that's just another way of saying that more time, people, resources and money will be wasted, as always. Hard working citizens and caring people have always been the driving force behind improvements, not just small businesses. And when you destroy your small businesses by bringing in large Corporations, you ignorantly dig your own grave. But you will never see leaders reach out to people for help, mostly because they would have to admit their incompetence, their corruption and their ignorance, which would cause them to lose votes, votes they need to continue receiving their over paid salaries, all for their inadequate service to the community.

Every citizen needs to be fully aware and informed about the true state of their city. This way people will be able to make the right choices and make good decisions that would ultimately lead to improvements for everyone in the community. If everyone understands the responsibilities, and if everyone shares in the responsibilities, then everyone will have control over their own destinies and their own personal freedoms. Then everyone can finally live in Peace and Harmony.

Political Campaigns are an organized effort which seeks to influence the decision making process within a specific group.

Negative Campaigning are attack ads focus exclusively on the negative aspects of the opponent. There is no positive content in an attack ad, whether it is about the candidate or the opponent. Attack ads usually identify the risks associated with the opponent, often exploiting people’s fears to manipulate and lower the impression voters have of the opponent. Because attack ads have no positive content, they have the potential to be more influential than contrast ads in shaping voters’ views of the sponsoring candidate’s opponent.

Attack Ad is an advertisement whose message is designed to wage a personal attack against an opposing candidate or political party in order to gain support for the attacking candidate and attract voters. Attack ads often form part of negative campaigning or smear campaigns, and in large or well-financed campaigns, may be disseminated via mass media. Gossip
October Surprise is a news event deliberately created or timed or sometimes occurring spontaneously to influence the outcome of an election, particularly one for the U.S. presidency.

Political Campaigns are mostly used by the propaganda machine. Political Campaigning is not about educating people or informing people, or is it about addressing important issues, it's about distracting the public from the actual truth and facts. The main goal of political campaigns is to keep people ignorant, and the scumbags in the media are accessories to this crime.
Political Campaigns today are mostly a ugly disrespectful reality TV show that mocks the ignorance of every citizen who votes. The whole political process needs to be revamped and improved because it's a disgrace to all living things on this planet. We need more qualified people to choose from, and the news papers must deliver the facts about each candidate to all citizens, instead of wasting paper, resources and time delivering bullshit that does nothing to inform people about the facts.

Call Time or Strategic Outreach is a lie and a distortion of the English language. Politicians spend more time pandering for votes to keep their job then doing the actual job they are paid to do. Any employee on the planet would be fired on the spot for this type of ignorant behavior, but these scumbags get away with it everyday. This needs to stop.



Voting


You need to remember that You Vote Everyday, everyone votes every single day. Everything that you do in life is a vote for something or a vote against something. So don't just vote during elections, vote everyday. And if we all make good choices and good decisions together, then we will continually have improvements. To pretend that voting in elections fulfills your responsibility to your state, your community and your country is a lie. You vote around 100 times a day on average. So you need to know the full consequences of all your actions that you make everyday. Who are you hurting? Who are you benefiting? Which criminal organization are you supporting? All these actions add up.

"Democracy cannot succeed unless those who express their choice are prepared to choose wisely. The real safeguard of democracy, therefore, is Education." ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

George Carlin ~ The American Dream (youtube)

American Dream is set of ideals (democracy, rights, liberty, opportunity, and equality) in which freedom includes the opportunity for prosperity and success, and an upward social mobility for the family and children, achieved through hard work in a society with few barriers. "life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement" regardless of social class or circumstances of birth. The American Dream is rooted in the Declaration of Independence, which proclaims that "all men are created equal" with the right to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

"Right and Wrong cannot be decided just by voting, it needs education along with fulfilling our daily responsibilities." 

If you think that voting in an election is some how fulfilling your patriotic duty, or if you believe that voting is some how honoring fallen veterans, your are a fool and a moron. If you think that you can transfer your responsibilities as a citizen to a politician who has very little power because of a corrupt system, your are a fool and a moron. Voting in an election is less then 1% of the total responsibilities that every person has on this planet. If you don't educate yourself about your responsibilities, you will most likely end up being an accessory to the crimes being committed against humanity on a daily basis. You have to educate yourself on all the ways that you can improve your country and your community. You can not simply transfer those responsibilities to someone else by just voting for someone that you have no control over.

Not only do you need to know the candidate that you're voting for, you need to know how your politician Votes and Represents you after they have been elected? And you need the power to remove politicians who do not fulfill their responsibilities. But in order to do that, you need to be informed, you need to understand your own responsibilities. You must have authority over yourself first before you can give the responsibility of authority to other people. Another reason why we need to improve education and public awareness

People should not allow a corrupt 2 party dominated system to deny peoples rights or control peoples choices. Forcing people to choose between only 2 Unqualified criminals, that were chosen by wealthy criminals, is 100 percent unconstitutional and not even a democracy. So Not Voting is a protest, the same kind of protest that gave America its independence.

It sucks to know that your vote in almost every Democratic Election is only a vote for the Lesser of Two Evils, which means you still have Evil.  "The lesser of two evils is Still Evil"

Voting in political elections deceives the public into believing that they actually have a voice in a Democracy

Voter Registration Statistics Data
Total number of Americans eligible to vote - 218,959,000
Total number of Americans registered to vote - 146,311,000
Total number of Americans who actually voted in the 2012 Presidential election - 126,144,000
Only 57.5 % of Americans who were eligible to vote, actually voted in the 2012 Presidential election. But it's worse then that, a lot of voters are just voting against the other candidate, so it ends up being just less then 20% of the population who actually choose and want the current President. But it's worse then that....you don't get to choose, your choices are made for you. it's like a math trick, no mater what number you choose, the answer will always be the same, or "Same old Sh*t." But it's worse then that...

To say "America has Voted" is a Lie. To say "America has Spoken" is a Lie too. All you can say is that less then 20% of Americans population has voted for the current president, and whether they fully understand what they voted for has not even been determined. But it's worse then that...

Around 50% of Americans who are eligible to vote, decide not to Vote for Politicians in elections. But it's much worse then that.
Around 75% of Americans did not vote for an Elected President. But it's much worse then that. Only 25% of Americans registered to vote, choose a President. (60 Million votes = 20% of the population) But it's much worse then that. The Electoral College votes for the president. But it's much worse then that. Wealthy people bought the votes in the Electoral College. So only 1% of Americans actually choose a President. But it's much worse then that. Wealthy people control the President like a puppet (Esquire). So 90% of the promises that Presidents make, are never fulfilled because it's mostly a bunch of Lies. Same goes for 90% of your Representatives in Congress. You vote them in and then they never listen to you again because they are controlled by the wealthy 1%. So it's not the most votes that count, or even how many people voted that counts. It's what the wealthy 1% want. So do you think your vote counts now? You didn't make a difference. But the 1% want you to believe that you did make a difference so that you stay the fool that you are. Unless you do more then just vote in elections, you will have blood on your hands and you are basically just an accessory to crimes being committed against humanity. So what are you actually voting for? More Mass Murder? More Decay? More Disease? More Death? More Soldiers being Killed in the name of Corporations? WakeTFU America!

When you keep people divided, it's easier to manipulate people and control people. There are no Blue States or Red States, that is a lie to make Americans feel that are divided. Americans are not Divided, Americans are ill-informed, uninformed and ignorant about the reality of the world, and themselves. The only thing that truly Divides people is ignorance.
Identity Politics is a tendency for people of a particular religion, race, social background, etc., to form exclusive political alliances, moving away from traditional broad-based party politics. Identity Politics refers to political positions based on the interests and perspectives of social groups with which people identify. Identity politics includes the ways in which people's politics may be shaped by aspects of their identity through loosely correlated social organizations. Examples include social organizations based on race, gender identity, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, disability, religion, culture, language and dialect. Not all members of any given group are involved in identity politics. Discrimination - Bias

Voting
Voting is a method for a group such as a meeting or an electorate to make a decision or express an opinion, usually following discussions, debates or election campaigns. Democracies elect holders of high office by voting.

Voting System consists of the set of rules which must be followed for a vote to be considered valid, and how votes are counted and aggregated to yield a final result.

Electronic Voting is voting using electronic means to either aid or take care of the chores of casting and counting votes. Depending on the particular implementation, e-voting may encompass a range of Internet services, from basic data transmission to full-function online voting through common connectable household devices. Similarly, the degree of automation may vary from simple chores to a complete solution that includes voter registration & authentication, vote input, local or precinct tallying, vote data encryption and transmission to servers, vote consolidation and tabulation, and election administration. A worthy e-voting system must perform most of these tasks while complying with a set of standards established by regulatory bodies, and must also be capable to deal successfully with strong requirements associated with security, accuracy, integrity, swiftness, privacy, auditability, accessibility, cost-effectiveness, scalability and ecological sustainability.

Ballot is a device used to cast votes in an election, and may be a piece of paper or a small ball used in secret voting. It was originally a small ball (see blackballing) used to record decisions made by voters.

Secret Ballot is a voting method in which a voter's choices in an election or a referendum are anonymous, forestalling attempts to influence the voter by intimidation and potential vote buying. The system is one means of achieving the goal of political privacy.

Electoral College in the United States is the body that elects the President and Vice President of the United States every four years. Citizens of the United States do not directly elect the president or the vice president; instead they choose "electors", who usually pledge to vote for particular candidates.
5 presidents have been elected without the popular vote. The most recent was George W. Bush in 2000, which gave us 911.
63 percent of Americans would get rid of the electoral college.

The number of electoral votes each state gets is determined by its number of House seats and Senate seats. This system dates back to the early 1800's and stems from the idea that the people should not be trusted to vote directly for their president.
The U.S. Constitution contains very few provisions relating to the qualifications of Electors. Article II, section 1, clause 2 provides that no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector. Political Parties often choose Electors for the slate to recognize their service and dedication to that political party.
When the voters in each state cast votes for the Presidential candidate of their choice they are voting to select their state's Electors. The potential Electors' names may or may not appear on the ballot below the name of the Presidential candidates,
There is no Constitutional provision or Federal law that requires Electors to vote according to the results of the popular vote in their states. Electors usually pledge to vote for their party's nominee, but some "faithless electors" have voted for other candidates or refrained from voting. A candidate must receive an absolute majority of electoral votes (currently 270) to win the presidency or the vice presidency. Presidential electors have the Constitutional right to vote their conscience and the responsibility to unify behind the best person for the job, but how can they when they have pledged themselves to a political party? Bias

Election is a formal decision-making process by which a population chooses an individual to hold public office. Elections have been the usual mechanism by which modern representative democracy has operated since the 17th century. Elections may fill offices in the legislature, sometimes in the executive and judiciary, and for regional and local government. This process is also used in many other private and business organizations, from clubs to voluntary associations and corporations.

Campaigns

Elections and Political Campaigns need to be more like a Hiring Process, where citizens interview the prospective employees, or politicians, to assess whether they are competent enough to do the job effectively and efficiently as needed.
Job Interview is a a conversation between a job applicant and a representative of an employer which is conducted to assess
whether the applicant should be hired.
Structured  Interview is to ensure that each interview is presented with exactly the same questions in the same order. This ensures that answers can be reliably aggregated and that comparisons can be made with confidence between sample
subgroups or between different survey periods.
Recruitment refers to the overall process of attracting, selecting and appointing suitable candidates for jobs (either
permanent or temporary) within an organization.
Job Analysis are procedures to identify the content of a job in terms of activities involved and attributes or job requirements
needed to perform the activities. Job analysis provides information to organizations which helps to determine which employees are best fit for specific jobs. Through job analysis, the analyst needs to understand what the important tasks of the job are, how they are carried out, and the necessary human qualities needed to complete the job successfully. The process of job analysis involves the analyst describing the duties of the incumbent, then the nature and conditions of work, and finally some basic qualifications. After this, the job analyst has completed a form called a job psychograph, which displays the mental requirements of the job. The measure of a sound job analysis is a valid task list. This list contains the functional or duty areas of a position, the related tasks, and the basic training recommendations. Subject matter experts (incumbents) and supervisors for the position being analyzed need to validate this final list in order to validate the job analysis. Job analysis is crucial for first, helping individuals develop their careers, and also for helping organizations develop their employees in order to maximize talent. The outcomes of job analysis are key influences in designing learning, developing performance interventions, and improving processes. The application of job analysis techniques makes the implicit assumption that information about a job as it presently exists may be used to develop programs to recruit, select, train, and appraise people for the job as it will exist in the future. A job analysis might be undertaken to document the knowledge, skills, abilities and other characteristics (KSAOs) required or sought for the job. From these the relevant information is captured in such documents as job descriptions and job specifications.
Employment, an employee is a person who is hired to provide services and duties to people on a regular basis in exchange
for compensation. An employee contributes labor and expertise to an endeavor of an employer, which the employer in this case are the fellow citizens who hired you through a voting process, or job interview.

Over a 100 People Run for President, But not everyone gets noticed, Why?  Fascism

What if you were an employer and someone said to you that you only had two people to choose from out of the thousands of qualified people who could do the job who are waiting outside your business ready to be hired. What would you say to that? You would say GFY! When certain people in power control your choices, that's criminal, that's terrorism, that's fascism.

When the citizens are denied the necessary knowledge and information that would educate them enough to understand the realities of our current situation, then people would never be aware of the choices they have, which means people will never have true freedom, people will never experience true happiness, and people will never experience a good life. This ruthless control over people is killing us by the millions every year, and yet, we the people still have not learned how to solve this problem. But this problem will be solved within this century, because we don't have a choice. Oh the irony, you took away peoples choices, so now people are left with no choice but to take our choices back, your stealing days are over.

Uncontested Elections are elections which were not held due to there only being a single candidate who could assume the position without the need for an election.

Voter ID is Discrimination

Ghost Voters is a practice in which a member of a legislative assembly casts a vote without being present in the voting chamber. Legislators can also sometimes rig their voting buttons to be triggered remotely.

Electoral Fraud is illegal interference with the process of an election. Acts of fraud affect vote counts to bring about an election result, whether by increasing the vote share of the favored candidate, depressing the vote share of the rival candidates, or both. What constitutes electoral fraud under law varies from country to country.

It is an effective method for countries where identification documents for citizens are not always standardized or institutionalized. Biometric-update

What ignorant moron would use a computer to count votes?

Protest Vote is a vote cast in an election to demonstrate the voter's dissatisfaction with the choice of candidates or refusal of the current political system. In this latter case, protest vote may take the form of a valid vote, but instead of voting for the mainstream candidates, it is a vote in favor of a minority or fringe candidate, either from the far-left, far-right or self-presenting as a candidate foreign to the political system.
If a corrupt politician refuses to vote, they call it "Abstains from Voting", if an American decides not to vote they call it a protest.
Abstention is a term in election procedure for when a participant in a vote either does not go to vote (on election day) or, in parliamentary procedure, is present during the vote, but does not cast a ballot. Abstention must be contrasted with "blank vote", in which a voter casts a ballot willfully made invalid by marking it wrongly or by not marking anything at all. A "blank (or white) voter" has voted, although their vote may be considered a spoilt vote, depending on each legislation, while an abstaining voter hasn't voted. Both forms (abstention and blank vote) may or may not, depending on the circumstances, be considered to be a protest vote (also known as a "blank vote" or "white vote").
Silent Majority is an unspecified large group of people in a country or group who do not express their opinions publicly. But silence can still be damaging.

Whether you have less of an as*hole (democrat), or more of an as*hole (republican), you still have an as*hole. So lets have no more as*holes. "No More As*holes" should be the next campaign slogan, we'll call it the Non-As*hole Party. Instead of one person, we send a team of scientists, mathematics experts, teachers and students, both men and women. There would also be a blind person, a deaf person, and a quadriplegia person, each of whom represents other people with similar disabilities. Our next president will not be one person, it will be a highly skilled team made up of the most intelligent people we have. A transparent open government controlled by people, instead of money. Of course we can have one person to represent the team, but they are just a representative and not a leader. "No more as*holes, no more as*holes, no more as*holes." I love Democracy, and I also love freedom of speech, the US Constitution rules baby. It's time to apply our knowledge instead of denying our knowledge.  It's time.

"When I vote for a politician it's not that I approve of them, it's just I can tolerate their ignorance and criminal behavior a little more then the other idiot."

"It's time to vote for the next Mass Murderer, which one will you vote for?"  "Elect and Regret"

Not to say that voting for politicians doesn't make a difference, I'm just saying if that's all you do is vote for politicians, then you will make very little difference, because voting for a politician is only 1% of the total responsibilities of all citizens. What you need to fully understand is that you actually vote everyday of your life by way of the choices you make. Everything you do is Cause and Effect. The problem is that most people have no idea of the effects that their Choices are making. Our Problems can only be fixed when every citizen is aware of their choices and options. Just voting for politicians just perpetuates our problems. Informing the public is the only sure way of correcting our problems and ridding our world of corruption, abuse and waste. So Vote for that, then all your problems will soon be solved. I wouldn't be surprised if voting turnout was 90%, because this type of voting could be done anywhere at anytime. So do you know what you're voting for?

"When people learn and understand how every choice and decision they make is a vote, and when people are fully aware how they make hundreds of votes every day by their actions, then everyone will people make better decisions."

What ever is in Fashion

"Peoples lack of knowledge pretty much limits them to just voting for their favorite color, ' Red or Blue'. If that doesn't work then people usually just vote for a name or a label, which is ignorant and shallow. People need to learn how their ignorance and lack of knowledge hurts democracy, and how it hurts America. If people knew more, we would have more intelligent politicians, as well as, more intelligent voters."

Pick a side? Which side are you on? Why do I have to choose a side? If you have sides that means that one side is wrong or both sides are wrong. This is why so many people refuse to play this stupid game, especially when this is not a game, this is peoples lives. So you have to have at least one side that explains the facts, other wise, you will never have the improvements that are needed, or will we ever reach our full potential.

Best Party
We need a Good Party, a Political Party that focuses on what is Good and Right, without bias or corruption.

"Why would you vote when your only choices are ignorant criminals who are only doing public service for the money and not to be a voice for the people that they claim to represent?"

The problems in our world are Numerous and sometimes Complicated. And one thing is for sure, this shit is not going to fix itself.

Voting in elections is simply not enough
, and that goes for every country on this planet. And the evidence that just voting doesn't work is everywhere. You have to be able to understand the problems that society is faced with. That is the only sure way that our problems will ever be solved. And the only way to understand these problems, is by Learning. Learning about the system, learning about your choices and options, and learning the facts. You also have to Learn the best ways to get the most important information that you need so that you are more aware and better informed on what actions you need to take. And learning to communicate effectively is a must. Of course there's more to learn then this, so lets get started.

Politicians mostly represent greed and corruption. The public does not have a voice in Government. You don't have a Democracy when politicians can be corrupted with money. It's not who has the most votes, but who takes the most money from Lobbyists, which act to influence decisions made by officials in a government, most often legislators or members of regulatory agencies. But the worse thing is that a lot of politicians become Lobbyists, so as the stab everyone in the back when they're in office, they continue to steal and murder in the name of money and corporate greed. Favors for Murder

Lobbying is the act of attempting to influence decisions made by officials in a government, most often legislators or members of regulatory agencies. Lobbying is done by many types of people, associations and organized groups, including individuals in the private sector, corporations, fellow legislators or government officials, or advocacy groups (interest groups).

Bribery is just another word for Lobbying.

Untraceable money is the same as money laundering. Someone stole money and now they want to use it to steal more money, or too buy favors from people, which is they same as extortion and bribing. Information subsidy is also another word for extortion and bribing. Lobbyist is just another word for bribery. You don't vote for a lobbyist, so who do they represent?

The Publics only chance is to Educate Themselves with the necessary knowledge and information so that they can finds ways to make long lasting improvements instead of just waiting for old age that will be filled with suffering and more corruption. Deciding not to vote for politicians is your right, but it's a huge mistake if you exercise only that right and nothing more.

"American citizens have been Excommunicated from our so called democratic government."

"I apologize to the people of the world who have suffered from the ignorant actions of my Government and by the People in Power who have exploited and manipulated our Country. Our Democracy and our Constitution is being undermined and abused. Please bear with us as we go through these much needed changes. We will share with you everything that we learn from this process called Improvements, so that you may use this information to help make improvements in your area of the world if needed. And please remember to keep educating yourself because you cannot fight ignorance without the necessary knowledge and information that is needed to define our mistakes, and at the same time, come up with logical solutions that will help correct them."

"I don't judge a country by their leaders, I judge a country by it's people, and as far as I can see, every country on this planet is full of good people. Most leaders are ignorant and corrupt and not the citizens who temporally live under their rule. Don't judge a book by it's cover and don't judge a country by their leaders."

Audit is a systematic and independent examination of books (How much Money coming in? How the money was spent?), accounts, statutory records, documents and vouchers of an organization to ascertain how far the financial statements as well as non-financial disclosures present a true and fair view of the concern. It also attempts to ensure that the books of accounts are properly maintained by the concern as required by law. Financial Advice

We have been fools for to long to believe that Government Agencies alone are going to be effective and efficient enough to fulfill the necessary responsibilities of a particular service to the people. People need to understand that these agencies can only do so much. And when people in power can be corrupted by money, they will be even more ineffective, and they will never do what is right or what is good and fair for everyone. People need to be more informed, and people need to understand their responsibilities, responsibilities that are required in order for improvements to be successful. Citizens need to be very much apart of the implementing process, the more people involved, the less enforcement of the laws and rules will be needed. You can't expect someone else to look out for your best interest if all you're going to do is expect someone else to look out for your best interest. Everyone needs to learn to share responsibilities, it's the only way for humans to live in harmony and to live in peace.


"Why is it so hard to follow your own Rules?"  What's the difference between a Reason and a Lie?   

Verification Theory

"The only government cover-up you should be worried about is knowing "Who's Really in Charge?"

"If a Politician is just another word for a Shill then Consumer Protection should also protect us from our Government."

"imagine getting a job just because people voted for you. Imagine if you wanted to be an engineer but had no school or training, and all you had to do to get this job is to get people to vote for you, well you would totally suck, as most politicians do. So why don't we have skill and knowledge requirements for political positions? Is it because you voted for morons? Probably."

"It's either there is not enough people for the job or someone is not doing their job?Monitor

"Politicians talk a lot but they hardly never say anything important, honest or insightful. And yes you are a Liar, because if you say something that you purposely want to be Interpreted in the wrong way, you are a liar. (Baseless Claims) ...More...

"How do you create an Internal Affairs for Government and how would you protect those people who work for Internal affairs from corruption?"

Civil Liberties

American exceptionalism is the belief that the history of the United States is inherently different from other nations, and the US has a unique mission to transform the world, and that its history and its mission give the United States a superiority over other nations.
Exceptionalism is the perception that a country, society, institution, movement, or time period is "exceptional" (i.e., unusual or extraordinary) in some way and thus does not need to conform to normal rules or principles. Although the idea appears to have developed with respect to an era, today the term is particularly applied to national or regional exceptionalism. Other uses are rarer in the present day.

Exploitation is an act that exploits or victimizes someone (treats them unfairly)
Manipulation

If you See Something, Say Something...I see corruption, criminals in power, waste, abuse, suffering, propaganda, pollution and avoidable deaths..and that's everyday.

You either learn how the government and the world works or you can just trust that people in power will do the right thing. And as you can clearly see just trusting people hasn't been working out to well. It's not a good idea to put your future into someone else's hands, especially when you know nothing about what those hands are doing behind your back. Put life in your hands, Learn?

"Rational Ignorance is an oxymoron. If you believe that these two words can be combined and somehow made into a definition that makes sense, then yes you are a moron."

"The government is an extension of yourself, so if you don't know yourself, you can't improve yourself."

One of the worst things about trying to communicate with government offices is that you always get the run around. No one wants to be straight forward and honest with you. They're always Beating around Bush and making you Jump through Hoops. Forcing people to go here and there and go from person to person just to get a simple answer. It's almost like people plan to act ignorant incompetent. Maybe to discourage you, or maybe to punish you for making them do their job. And then some will even say it's not my job, but that's a lie. They're just being disrespectful, and there is no need for that kind of behavior. It's almost like Customer Service does not exist.
