Habitual Politicians:
Habitual Problems
and Terrorism

What is politics? The simplest, most innocent definition is "making policy to solve public problems." Who is the policy for? The Problem-Sufferers, also known as the citizens or the polity. What happens when people suffer unsolved problems?  They become uncivil or unpolite, often requiring police action. Is the following a play on words or a revealing truth: "When politicians make good policy, the polity in the polis will be polite without the need of police"? (RTD Letter) The linchpin is the politicians. They control the policy-making process. Unfortunately, with each unearned legislated economic privilege (private law), politicians engage in policy-mocking.

If this saying is true, then politics today must have another meaning. Considering the increase of incivility, police intervention and prisons, our problems are not being solved . Why does politics fail to solve our problems?  In reality, politics means "bringing unrelated factors into the problem-solving process." Problems remain unsolved or grow. Problem solutions are simple until the politicians introduce the complexity of campaign welfare, that is, getting something for nothing for their campaign contributors.

How ironic that the phrase "economic privilege" indites the habitual politicians for corrupting public law-making to help private citizens. "Privilege" is Latin for "private law." Each economic privilege is a theft from the general public to aid a politician's private friend. Not only do our public laws contain too many private thefts, but the existence of Political IOU's ensure more privileges that steal from the money we could have for better health care, shorter workweeks and earlier retirements.

Does it require a rocket scientist to recognize that we have a lot of growing, unsolved problems? What is the common unrelated factor that our Congressional politicians bring to the table of solving our national problems? Their re-election. Do they vote first and foremost on how to solve our problems? Or, do they vote in order to solve their re-election problems? A common criticism of Congress is that they are always running for reelection. What's the solution?

We need to properly label our national politicians who are obsessed with reelection. Should we continue to call them "professional" politicians. No. The word "profess" means to speak truths that take one forward: "pro faire". Do they speak truths in the problem-solving process to liberate us from our problems? No. Career politicians is more descriptive. But that's not quite right either.

The needed word jumps out if you look at the characteristics of our politicians. Do their habits cause a lot of pain and suffering? Are they addicted to or intoxicated with power? Yes.

What do we call the members of our community who repeatedly offend and harm us? Habitual offenders. Likewise, because of their habit to cause pain and suffering and because of their addiction to power,

we should call the members of our Congress "habitual politicians."

The only thing that habitual politics achieves is the jockeying of position and seniority to see who can steal the most from the taxpayers to buy their reelections. To think that habitual politicians have more integrity, care and ability than other citizens flies in the face of how the political cesspool destroys integrity. Term limits with election reform will give us leaders free of the corruption of the cesspool to create laws.

Why did we have a revolutionary war? Habitual Politics! A hereditary king is a habitual politician. We can cite specifics--the tea tax or George III was crazy--but the general reason was that we did not want a monarchy. What is a monarchy but a hereditary habitual politician. We need a new Declaration of Independence. Or, a Re-Declaration of Independence.

Are elected habitual politicians any better than hereditary ones? No. Why? Because of how habitual politicians ensure their reelection. They use the public laws to pass laws to benefit their friends who help them get reelected. It is slick how they hide the connection between campaign contributions and tax-beneficial legislation for their big campaign contributors. On must-pass legislation, they swap sponsorship for bills benefitting their campaign contributors, to wit: "You help my campaign contributors steal through the tax system (deductions, credits, or supports) and I will do the same for yours!"

The more they get reelected, the more powerful they become. With this power they are able to help their friends even more. At a certain point, they are so powerful that no one wants to challenge them at election time.

In 1998, more than half of Virginia's Congressmen ran without an opponent from the opposing major party. And, if you kept up with the 1998 Congressional redistricting after the lawsuit against racial gerrymandered districts, the local Congressmen (Bliley and Scott) were allowed to redraw the districts to their choosing. Someone wrote that the voters didn't choose the officials. Rather, the politicians got to choose their voters to ensure their reelection. Now this is true democracy.

Mark Twain said we have the best Congress that money can buy. When I think of Samuel Clement's comment, I wonder if we shouldn't change the name from House of Representatives to House of Ill Repute and renaming the Speaker of the House to Madam of the House.

Because of habitual politicians, Congress is like a crooked police force. A new, good cop can't do anything unless he starts taking bribes and graft. Likewise, a new, good Congressman can't do anything unless he goes along with the theft of taxpayer dollars. Habitual politicians have made public policymaking a cesspool into which no good thinker can enter without becoming a stinker. Retired politicians who complain about the system after serving many terms remind me of pensioned gas-chamber guards complaining about genocide.

What's the difference between a Republican and Democrat? One's a thieving robber and the other's a robbing thief. What are they steal ing? Our taxes, our dignity, and our freedom from problems. In short, they steal our time. Haves and have nots has less to do with money than with having a life and not being worked to death. The habitual politicians have given us longer workweeks and longer work lives with time for self, family and community.

The number one problem of humanity is the habitual politician. No human life nor human hour wastes as much time as the habitual politician. Faster than a computer, habitual politicians corrupt the public problem-solving process to benefit the private wants, not needs, of his friends and supporters. For the new millennium, do we need the habitual politician? No, we don't need habitual quack doctors.

Habitual politicians remain in power because they give privileges to their friends and supporters. This unfairness creates a class of disadvantaged, denied and unprivileged. Two problematic conditions arise. First of all, the denied are not able to share the solutions to their problems within the political system. Society suffers chronic, habitual problems. Secondly, from within the multitude of denied and disadvantaged arise the intelligent, bitter individuals who will reward the habitual politicians with habitual terrorism. The solution to habitual politicians is term limits. We have them in place for the U.S. President as legislated by Congress. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

Re-Declaration of Independence

What do you call a habitual politician who's father was a habitual politician? A son of  habitual politician, e.g., Gore and Bush.


  1. Congress is a constipated problem-solving process because a lot goes in but nothing comes out.
  2. One difference between Democrats and Republicans politicians is support among voters who label themselves as either Democrats and Republicans. Only 60% of Democrats approve of their politicians because they find the Democratic politicians not as honest as they claim to be. Republican voters, however, give their politicians an 80% approval because Republicans expect their politicians to be dishonest. In other words, Democrats are naive and Republicans are realistic.

  3. If each of the 535 habitual politicians in Congress daily steal a dime from you for their friends, that is a daily $53.50 that you don't have. If each steals a quarter, that is $133.75 a day. Of course, if they steal a dollar for their friends through tax-benefits and monopolies, that is $535 a day. The average American who votes for a habitual politicians is a person who is voting for habitual poverty.

  4. If you don't solve problems you are a better problem-solver than a habitual politician.

  5. Political Corruption: If the oil in your car is dirty,
    do you add a another quart or do you do an oil change?
  6. Habitual politicians are like the priestly pedophiles who could not continue to prey without the tainted eye of a sleezyastic vision from above: economists.

  7. Bernoulli effect in Politics and Problems: If you give me more power then I will solve problems, e.g., Schwarzenegger if elected like the self-centered persons who says that if they win the lottery they will give some of the money to poor when right now they give not a minute not a penny to the poor. Charity and problem-solving is a way of life, not a threshold miracle.

  8. Habitual politicians simply shows how America suffers from a dictatorship of incumbency. In times of habitual problems the answer may be rookies instead of crooks.

  9. 070808: When it comes to shifting from solving their re-election problems to solving the problems of humanity, the habitual politician is like the pimp attending church to save his soul all the while assessing the merits of ladies attending the service. It would be easier for a habitual politician to go through the eye of a needle than to save life on earth.
  10. 071211: If you think habitual politicians will change, you are fooling yourself. Like always, they will change their speeches to tell you what you want to hear but they will not change their ways of helping their friends, their families and their re-elections.
  11. 090716: Habitual Politicians Pie in the Sky

    Anyone who has a memory of previous election, legislative and executive cycles will recognize a common pattern that is captured in an old psychology joke:

    1. Neurotics build castles in the sky
    2. Psychotics live in those castles
    3. Psychologists collect the rent.

    The common parallel pattern of the habitual politicians' pie-in-the-sky cycle is

    1. Out-of-Touch politicians promise change for sky high living.
    2. Ill-motivated, under-educated citizens live and vote for politicians' something-for-nothing dreams
    3. Habitual politicians collect their rent from lobbyists while workers and consumers pay for the promises with higher taxes and inflation.
  12. 090719 The habitual politicians should not be wasting time on healthcare plans for citizens but on a healthcare plan for Mother Nature.
  13. Nepotism describes multi-generational habitual politicians.
