THE MOST HONEST DISHONEST POLITICIAN
I would like to introduce to you Congressman Frank Underwood, Democrat from the 5th congressional district of Georgia and the House Majority Whip.
Excuse me, no. UPDATE:
Please meet the Vice President of the United States of America, Frank Underwood of Georgia.
Nope, no, sorry again. UPDATE:
Ladies and Gentlemen, The President of the United States, Francis Underwood from the great state of Georgia.
Actually who I am referring to is the great actor KEVIN SPACEY and the character he plays on the hit television series HOUSE OF CARDS, which streams on NETFLIX. I do not usually promote a television show, but this one in particular I HIGHLY recommend.
HOUSE OF CARDS comes from a series that was first televised on the BBC in the 1980's and has been adapted to American television. What is so great about it is that it really portrays how things are done in Washington DC today. And I have to give Mr. Spacey credit, I believe he is a liberal, he admits that the series is not too far fetched on how things are done there.
The corruption, the back stabbing, the betrayals, the blackmail, the using of people, the manipulations, and yes, even the murders.
The constant obsession with gaining more and more power; and it is never enough.
What I like about the series is that Frank Underwood always involves YOU into what he is doing, why he is doing it and his philosophies as he does so. He will pause right in the middle of a scene and look directly at you and speak with you.
My favorite line so far in the series is when Frank Underwood is being sworn in as Vice President. He accomplished this task through his manipulations and blackmail. During the swearing in ceremony, while his right hand is raised he looks directly at you and says:
"A heartbeat away from the most powerful office in the world without one vote cast for me. Democracy is so overrated".
Frank Underwood - - - the most honest, dishonest politician. The ironic thing is even though Frank Underwood is a fictional character, all he portrays is true.
However what I also like about the series is the real truth about Washington DC, that the politicians there do not care for the American citizens, there problems or there lives. All that matters to the politicians is the elections every two years. At the time of this writing Frank Underwood and the Democrats are only concerned with "the mid terms". I now hear all the real politicians in Washington DC saying how they must wait for "the mid-terms" before they take any type of action - - - on anything.
When you really think about it, getting elected, it is a pretty asinine way to try and get a job, and keep one.
Also, though Mr. Spacey is playing a Democrat he shows how there is no difference today between the Democrats and Republicans. They are one in the same. The Democrats are in charge, and the Republicans go along because they are there for the payoff as well. It is the Republicans turn to be the evil ones.
All legislations are designed to make the public believe one group is good and the other evil. And the legislations are the politicians bribes to the American citizens in order to control them.
Washington DC, it's all an act, it's all a soap opera, it's all designed to fool you.
Yes, it is all like a soap opera, and you could say pro wrestling. For a while all the good guys are good, and all the bad guys are bad. Then somewhere down the road the bad guys become the good guys and vice versa.
HOUSE OF CARDS - - - I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SERIES.
