Tweets by The Wise Sloth #19: Political Corruption, Incompetence and Voting

Cartoon image of a sloth sitting on a mountain top. He is wearing a yellow robe. His head is bowed with his eyes shut, and beams of light shine from around his head. With his left arm, he is holding one finger in the air. Above him are the words, "Tweets by The Wise Sloth."

Politicians only call companies that are big enough to fund their career, “too big to fail.”

Shortest explanation of USA politics: Most elected politicians are professional campaigners who work almost exclusively for their donors.

Soldiers protect you from terrorists. Cops protect you from criminals, and Congress protects big business’s profit margins from you.

Politicians call people who kill Americans, cowards. If that’s true, it’s more cowardly when they sell corporations the power to write laws.

It baffles me that in 2017 there are still people who believe politicians care about what people who haven’t given them money think.

You’d think humans would have learned by now, when a politician asks for more power, it’s for their benefit, at your expense.

Luckily, in America, the First Amendment allows you to speak freely about all your other rights the RNC and DNC are constantly taking away.

Just once I’d like to hear a politician advocate setting limits to how many laws a politician can break before being dishonorably discharged.

I wish the Republican Party would stop putting on pretenses and just change their name to the Fox News Party.

Charisma is a virtue, but the more intoxicatingly charismatic your leader is, the more likely they’re a sociopath and you’re gullible.

The more passionately you support any American politician, the more you should doubt your objectivity and double check you’re not wrong.

If politicians could be dishonorably discharged for negligence, bad conduct and crime, all of America’s congress would qualify for one.

If America can’t progress because the RNC & DNC can’t work together then the solution is to end the RNC & DNC.

50% of America’s children live in poverty. How many more need to before our political parties are fired?

My entire life I haven’t been waiting to see what problem my president solves next, I’ve been waiting to see what problem he creates next.

The more rules you have to follow that stress you out, the more likely your soldiers and/or politicians must be failing at their job.

The more you find yourself telling people to give your hero a second chance, the more likely you should give your hero a second look.

Uncle Sam lets us to vote on which hand he punches us in the dick with. If we don’t vote, we can’t complain when the decision is made for us.

Election Day should be a national holiday almost as much as elections shouldn’t be stacked or rigged.

Congressmen/women, who are picked by voters in single states, get to decide laws that affect every other state. Totally defeats the purpose.
