Politicians are not okay human beings. This is part of the purpose. No politician is a "good guy." Think it through. Becoming a senator or getting a slot in the House, these are not easy things to do. It takes years and years of struggles to get in. And then once you're there, everyone's always pissed at you, blaming you for everything, especially if you're in the wrong party. This is common knowledge. It's brutal to get in, and then it's the most stressful job in the world and you're not getting paid much.
So why would anyone
want to actually be
Answer: to control people. The desire to control people has to be greater than the stress brought about by the lifestyle. And that stress is truly vast. Therefore, a politician's desire to control fellow human beings is exceedingly vaster. And this is a problem. This is something that should be addressed in therapy before ever campaigning for congress. But it's not, so they end up politicians. Given this, party affiliation is truly secondary to the fact that all politicians are scoundrels.
Here's where the purpose plays in: because politicians are by nature complete scoundrels, you can't really trust anything they say. What you can
trust is history. History is nice. It's concrete and real. It's simply strings of things that actually happened. The rest of politics (everything outside of history) is the most absurdly misleading piece of thing ever.
So the purpose of this site is to provide the history, jam packed full of no agenda and no sources. It's the best approach to a just and political education. I like it. I think you will too.
You don't have to like it though. And if you simply don't like learning, don't feel you have to keep reading. Stop whenever you like. More power to you for doing so. But while feeling empowered, please don't ever vote on anything ever again. I don't care if you're a Democrat, Republican, Green Party, Nadar or Perot fan, anything. I don't care what it is you vote for, so long as you know what you're doing while filling in the box.
So the wholehearted purpose of American Earth is simply to allow you to vote, because otherwise, from an ethical standpoint, you shouldn't.
