- Indictment — “You are a politician!”
- Will of the people — That for which the people have no comprehension until they are told of it by politicians.
- Territory — That never-large-enough domain of the politician.
- Convenience — That which stands in for the truth.
- Revision — The refitting of that which was formerly a convenience, but of late has become an inconvenience.
- Distraction — That which is being bandied about while a revision is quietly being perfected.
