This was funny, and prooved a valid point! Good job, including stating that most politicians cannot help themselves

That's funny yet true. Politics is practically pointless now days (and always) because there are many that don't do a good job (pretty much the whole cabinet). Look at the political system here in Australia. We have two parties constantly insulting each other for every choice they make. I guess the only way I see politics is this way:
What Is Politics?
A little boy goes to his dad and asks, "What is politics?"
Dad says, "Well son, let me try to explain it this way: I'm the breadwinner of the family, so let's call me capitalism. Your Mom, she's the administrator of the money, so we'll call her the Government. We're here to take care of your needs, so we'll call you the people. The nanny, we'll consider her the Working Class. And your baby brother, we'll call him the Future. Now, think about that and see if that makes sense,"
So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what dad had said.
Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper. So the little boy goes to his parents' room and finds his mother sound asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny's room. Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up and goes back to bed. The next morning, the little boy says to his father, "Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics now."
The father says, "Good son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about."
The little boy replies, "Well, while Capitalism is screwing the Working Class, the Government is sound asleep, the People are being ignored and the Future is in deep poo."

I agree and it is true. Ethenol is a waste. However, you pay three times. One to produce, two to use, and three to make repairs to your busted car engine.
And yes politicians are paid to do what they do.
Poof point is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better then den brother. Though the latter wasn't so bad.
