How to understand politics better
April 2, 2016 by Paul McKeever
Five things to remember about people, politics, and political phrases (by no means a complete list, and in no particular order):
When they demand respect, they demonstrate that they lack what is needed to command respect.
It’s not a “hand-up” that they want. It’s a take-down.
When they say “Share the wealth”, they mean “Share the misery.”
When they say “Together, we will…”, they mean: “You shall…”. You, and you alone, for them, or else.
When they say “We’re all in this together”, the “this” they’re referring to is your wallet…and not theirs.
