I was just pondering this the other day.  Politicians who run for government jobs on the platform of providing less government is kinda like saying, “Hire me!  I’m not gonna do my job!”  Is that a bad thing?  Well, yeah of course.  It’s awful.  I do it all the time (I just don’t care that it’s bad), but I don’t tell the boss that I’m gonna do less.

Anyway, I think democracy fails when we only have douche bags to choose from… which is quite often in my opinion.
