It is so amusing observing politics in the US from the other side of the world. This is made even better by the “goggle-box” behaviour of some of the commentators. Our politicians are no saints either but I dare say they are not plastered over your nightly news to the same extent yours invade our nightly TV.
I am no fan of the President but I am realistic enough to know that each side is as bad as each other and neither is actually working for the good of the country. Rather they are working for the narrow group of influencers who are responsible for them being in office.
A long time ago, government was about governing the country. Now, politicians have two jobs. If you are in opposition, your job is to get elected. If you are in government, your job is staying elected. The common person ranks a long way down the list of stakeholders for a politician.
The extent that you favour one party or the other is directly proportional to the extent you believe that their policies will benefit you, or deliver the cultural environment you want.
