I'm a bit in a bad mood about politics so I decided to collect all this data to show you the 100% objective reason why Government and Politics sucks so bad. And it's in a pie chart, everyone loves pie charts!
I usually stay out of politics on boards like this, but I really don't know how many of you are aware of what kind of people your government is actually made up of.
And for all of you in Canada or the UK that are laughing at the miserability (rightfully so) of the makeup of American politicians, as a Canadian I recommend you look in the mirror before laughing. Unfortunately this demographic is similar all over the western world that people who make up government a lot of them are worthless lawyers and career politicians.
Now do you know why politics in the western world is usually shit? It's because most of the people you elect are lawyers which is one of if not the MOST morally bankrupt occupation in the world. More over you are electing politicians who have NO REAL WORLD EXPERIENCE in ANYTHING, and just became a politician. Why on earth would you make a 25 year old part of making decisions for millions of people? You think he/she understands what life is like with trials and tribulations of multiple daily problems?
You wonder why current US health care bill is having so many problems? Maybe it's because you have fucking lawyers trying to put it in rather than doctors. You think a lawyer understands how the health care industry works and how to make it treat as many people as possible without costing a lot? Maybe you should talk to the 4 people who actually have medical degrees and HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN IN THE MEDICAL FIELD?
Oh wait we do have 4 of them Jon Boozman, John Barrasso, Tom Coburn, and Rand Paul. Guess what? All 4 of them oppose the Affordable Care Act? Do you think 4 people who actually hold Medical School Degrees and have worked in the medical field have a much more informed opinion of what the hell would actually work then Obama who is another fucking lawyer with a law school degree?
If you actually want the raw excel data I put together you can find it here. I hope you've learned something new. Please stop electing lawyers.
