Political Posturing Versus Honesty – Domestic And International Sabotage

In the ritual of politics, the art of deceit (either through lying, omission or conflictory action) is, apparently a necessity. Politicians want to announce what they they believe their respective constituencies want to hear (“on the record”), but their actions tell much more about what they truly desire. I have discussed this type of two-faced conduct more than once in The Internationalist Page Blog, and with numerous other blogs which I author through the TNNWC Blogosphere

An  Illustrative case-in-point follows: An entire legislative body vociferously condemns a president’s participation in a military incursion, claiming an “abuse of a certain ‘War Powers Act‘ ” — even citing that the president’s action is unlawful as well as distasteful.

Ironically, after condemning the president’s action by an overwhelming majority, the same representitives of the populace agreed to continue funding the ‘allegedly legal’ activity. This would seem to be tacit support of a military action that this same hypocritical pack of self-righteous and pedantic prevaricators had just condemned in the most severe terms.

Hypocrisy, duplicity, posturing and traditional “professional representation” and “ambassadorial” functions are inefficient, destructive and unsustainable.
