    Regardless of political party, regardless of any particular politician, you can sum up the whole scope of politics with these few simple words:

    When all is said and done, more will be said then done.

    That really depends on how you look at it. More got done than said with George W. Bush's anti-constitutional patriot act, and then look at how more got done than said with Obamacare being forced against the will of the American people. Both Bush and Obama wrote executive orders allowing themselves to declare martial law. Oh, there is being more done than said, what is being done is, regardless of the political party, we are losing more and more freedom and liberty - all while both parties give us a WWE like show acting like they are fighting each other, but in reality are all on the same page. They are doing alot, they are just not saying what they are really doing is all.

    The real truth about politics is, we end up voting for the lesser of two evils, and in the end we get the same shit, just a different political parties letter on top of the pile of it - that is about the only difference.

    The real truth about politics is that it is mankind's oldest profession, as much as it sucks, it is so hardwired into our brains that there is no alternative. We curse it but we would not know how to live without it.

    Actually, "more will be said *then* done," or if that's just a grammar mistake and you meant, "more will be said *than* done," the two statements would have vastly different meanings.

    Which is it?

    .

    Yup. Lots of confusion between usage of "then" and "than". Constantly. See it all the time.

    Politics is all about man trying to dominate man.
