Serving Their Own Interests

Tremendous amounts of time and effort go into exposing the hypocrisy of particular politicians or political parties. But really, amigos, no one with even a passing familiarity with politics expects consistency from these persons and their umbrella institutions. Looking for a principled stance from them? Lots of luck with that.

In reality, their only principles are power and plunder. They know that the public’s attention span is very short and that hardly anyone learns any history or draws any valid lessons from it. So they are free to act from one moment to the next expediently, in whatever way seems to serve their own interest right now.

Tomorrow they may waffle or flop. All in a day’s work for a politician or political party.
