So many people do not want to go into politics, because of how they understand it, and how it is done in some societies. Sonme people also think that politics is only done during elections period,but it entails a lot of things. We have politics in our day to day life,in our homes, schools, churches etc.
So now, politics is the interplay of decisions between two actors, which one of them would want to win against another,by influencing him. And in politics, there are public administration, international relations, budgeting etc
Everyone born into this world is a politician, because they make decisions. When a child is born and he grows into the age of accountability, he becomes a politician and a political actor for himself. He decides on how to run his life. Sometimes his parents (another political actor) would want to help him make decisions, but sometimes their decisions for him do not stands, sometimes it stands,then that is politics.
But a political scientist is one who make decisions based on facts, gotten from observations. A politician can make decisions based on what he wants but a political scientist make decisions based on facts.
