    this one hell of issue in my mind.

    I always struggle to find out what it is.

    Is politics and hypocracy the same?

    I don't think they're the same but I do think politicians are hypocrites. Though I don't think they all started out that way.

    Humans are all hypocrites, by nature.  It's just magnified, the more power you have.

    do politicians enjoy being hypocrates? Don't they believe or follow what they ask others to do?

      No, they believe in the power that is associated with the position.  Politicians get into office now and stay for a 30 year career instead of a 1 or 2 term civic duty.  This is why lobbyests have so much power.  They can make long term relationships and not have to deal with a brand new crop every term.
