    And yet you spend much of your time complaining about politicians for what they are productively doing for society.

    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    I admire the person, not the profession.

    I'm reminded by something my grandfather once told me, "Give people something they need and can't live without but don't know they already need it." Whoever can do that gains my respect.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Actually, I admire neither. I used to admire the politician but now ... there is so much corruption they are practically the same.

    I admire the hard working, underpaid American working man.
    Where would the man work without the businessman to provide the job?

    What does the politician live for? What does the politician strive for? What does the politician obsess about? What ONE thing must the politician always consider in order to remain in his profession?

    THE VOTE.

    What the busnessman live for? Strive for? Obsess about? Does maintaining his occupation rely on consideration of a single entity or multiple entities?

    BANKRUPTCY; PROFIT; COSTS; SAVINGS; INVESTMENT; LOANS; RISKS, etc

    Remember that the next time a politician promises you your own personal pony.

    That makes no sense. The only way I can attempt to make sense of that logic is if it implies that human beings are incapable of understanding their own survival needs.

    Let me give it to you in a simple term. You ever seen something on TV and thought "Oh why didn't I think of that?" It makes perfect sense. If people didn't think like that we wouldn't be where we are today technologically nor as a society.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
