Today politics everywhere throughout the world are corrupt. Very few politicians elected (if its a democracy...it really does not matter) actually care about the people and the current most pressing matters at hand. Most care soley about their personal gain. After pondering a question I was asked by a friend I have come to some conclusions and questions that I would like to hear everyone comment on. The question was "Do you think world peace is even possible?" Now, when I heard this question I immediately said maybe because we do not know what could happen, things do change. However while thinking of a way I could talk about this question, I came up with a few examples to share with everyone. First, lets talk liberals and conservatives, the left wing and right wing. While there are some independents and some "liberal republicans" and "conservative democrats," these politicians are too small in number to be able to pass any legislature without having the full support of one party. So my first example is this: My..."theory" is that if any one politician, say it were a democrat came up with a plan that would be 99.9% sure to end world and congress was asked to vote on whether this plan should be acted upon/ enforced or simply whether or not to give government money to help support it, then the majority of the republican party would not vote for the plan, simply because the parties are so divided and there is so much friction between the two that they would automatically denounce each others plan, find any miniscule problem they could and make a fiasco over it. It happens more than you think. During the clinton administration, congress turned down many plans, bills etc. introduced by President Clinton simply because few republicans would vote for them. Now President Bush is in office and the republicans are the majority and they are voting for many things that bush has suggested (ex: 87.5 billion dollars to rebuild Iraq) which helped cause the deficit America is currently dealing with. If only the two parties were not so hostile towards eachother, it would be so much easier to work towards solving things such as world hunger, even peace.
