Epiphany of a betrayed conservative

Article:

The classic stereotype of dishonesty and deception involves the used car salesman. In my case, the allusion became literal. After having found myself aghast at the obvious and blatant lies told by a salesman, I walked out of the car lot, knowing he was just wasting my time.

Later on, I was listening to a televised speech made by Bill Clinton and quickly got exactly the same feeling. I switched off the television and have never again listened to anything the Clintons say. They're lying. Why waste my time?

It's years later, and once again, that very same moment is being relived but this time, it's not just the Democrats. To my dismay, I have belatedly come to the conclusion that the great majority of politicians are just what their dismal stereotype says they are: self-serving, hypocritical cheats (many expletives deleted). They're lying. As the crew of the Titanic tries to plug the holes, the politicians, who caused the sinking, are looting the ship's safe and bribing the crew to reserve the lifeboats to prevent the riffraff from climbing into them.

I could name a small number of exceptions, but I dread doing so for fear that tomorrow, I will discover that even they are cowards, scoundrels, and thieves. Indeed, in recent weeks, I have felt made a fool by ever having thought well of several. The scant few to whom I still give some benefit of doubt, I will not name, because now I am cynical and suspicious, fearing that even they have pulled the wool over my credulous eyes.

Is there any hope?

Been saying the same thing for years. With the system entirely corrupted by the political parties and big money, you pretty much have to be amoral to even get into national politics.
