The purpose of politicians is as legislators.
for that function why do we need three levels of govt and 240 for the first level. these people will ruin country until those poor women workin in the middle east send money.
After that, country goes bankrupt.
Then, what will they do ?
right now roads are congested because of too much traffic. Politicians buy duty free cars and sell it to businessmen for profit. govt give more gasoline allowances and permission to lease cars and also helicopter rides go to the destination. Politicians have foundations and charity organizations all to collect money legally. It is all legalized thefts from the country.
