THEY ARE THAT DUMB
I’m going all in and am saying that I think that yes, most politicians really are stupid and ignorant. Most of them couldn’t run a conspiracy if they tried. They might be unwittingly led into supporting one, but mostly they are just vapid egomaniacs. Some think they’re working to do good, others don’t care. Why we keep voting for them, let alone give them money, I do not know.
