Unlike the DNA of a common man the DNA of a politician is made up of three basic qualities : nepotism, graft and lawlessness.
Nepotism : every politicians has to whole heartedly promote his family and friends, their dogs, cats and everything remotely related to themselves. They will be given cushy jobs not just in government sector but also in private sector. And furthermore they will be given seats in the parliament …yes, even though this is democracy for politicians the nation is run like a Monarchy. For example : In India if a chief minister vacates his chair he will see to it that it is filled with his son/ daughter…if that son/ daughter is busy then son-in-law/ daughter-in-law…irrespective of if the person or animal is educated or not . And this Nepotism goes on like that till the entire set of friends and family fills up the entire cabinet, government and private sector. Nepotism is very important for politicians as it helps to the ideal practice of graft and lawlessness . Nepotism gives the strength , reliability and safety to the herd of political beneficiaries protecting them from the laws of democracy and people .
Graft : Every politician is entitled to make tax free money through bribes from every corner of the country through every possible means and then store it in tax havens like the Switzerland banks. They have every right to loot the country of its ecological and economical wealth. The greater the scams the great the politician and the more powerful his/her position in a party. For example : Indian politicians and their family and friends are famous for graft. There are more scams in India than there are people and projects.
Lawlessness : All politicians are above law. And all friends and families of politicians are above law too. Their survival instinct of a herd and their penchant for mutual appreciation takes care of that. Even crimes like murder , rapes, abduction are although illegal are politically acceptable. Today most of the top government positions in law and order are filled by the stooges of politicians which makes it very easy to loot the country. For example Indian parliament has : 30% of the lawmakers in India have criminal cases against them. 162 out of 543 in the Lok Sabha, lower house of the Indian parliament, have cases registered against them.
Yes, these so called politicians not just get themselves elected by hook or crock as if this country is their grandfathers property but also use it to become rich and make laws that govern others but not them.
