Food for thought: "Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself."
Political Science studies political institutions, principles, organizations, and methods of government. It also studies the distribution of power in groups, how authoritative decisions are made, and how group conflicts take shape and are resolved. Political Science studies human political behavior: what people think about political issues, how they act, who they hate or like, why they vote and participate in the political process
