But because the word “politics” has been misused by the media, most everyone attributed their extreme behavior to, you might have already guessed it, politics. However, you don’t even have to understand government in order to label such behavior anything but politics. What could possibly be politics about standing in the way of millions of people getting insured? What could possibly be politics refusing millions of women the same treatment as men in the workplace? What could possibly be politics denying science when the whole world is impacted by it? What could possibly be politics standing against protecting the environment we inhabit? What could possibly be politics about challenging Obama’s citizenship even after proof of citizenship was provided? As it should be obvious by now, anyone who stands in the way of progress to the detriment of a nation cannot blame politics for the behavior; it was something more nefarious than politics.
