Friction

It's obviously the people's conviction
That our congress runs better with friction
A well-oiled machine
Though ostensibly clean
Is a piece of political fiction

But aren't politics always filled with friction... Nice take.

Well, that was my point. And if there is no friction, it's too easy for the government to roll over its charges.

The main thing with the friction caused by politicians is being able to criticize them opening. Fortunately many of SS readers and contributors are blessed in this way. Long may it be so.
