I agree that politics is polite warfar, but as history has shown both apparently are necessary since they have always existed. If something has always existed and seems inescaple, it may even be a moral horror, but I suggest that it is not a moral WRONG! It is the cards we have been dealt.

A republican form of government is the only check against the majority declaring war upon the minority. Politics is war, and if we do not stand up for our rights, the politicians will put to vote to take them away one by one until there are none left.
