Every few years, around the elections, there seem to be more funny political quotes on social networks, and on websites in general, like on this webpage: http://www.hoopoequotes.com/collections/item/35749-42-funniest-political-quotes. People seem to share political quote images at those times more, but I think we should do that more often.
Politics is not only about elections, it is about our everyday lives. Their decisions influence us every day. We may often seem powerless to them, the few chosen, but we are the ones who chose them in the first place. We may seem weak individually, but jointly we can help create great change. But until that day comes, all we can do is laugh at them and remind them on their countless blunders.
That is why there are so many quotes websites around — not only to remind us of great inspirational sayings of famous people, but also to remind us that the people governing us are no better than the worst student in our class.
So, whether you’re a Facebook and Instagram type, who likes to share pictures and interesting stories, or you are more into short but effective messages — the Twitter style — you have to do your part — share these funny quotes for everyone to see what politicians really are.
