Frank Underwood – Your Evil Alter Ego

It’s time that I talked about this because it has been there in my mind for a while now.

House Of Cards!!

It’s a TV show on the politics that take place in Washington D.C. It’s about Frank Underwood, a lowly congressman who rips and kills the obstacles just so he can achieve his goal – To have power. And to have power, the only way for him is to be the President of the greatest country in the free world.

A lot of stuff is still hanging by the threads and could fall off any second and that just makes it more interesting.

Well, that isn’t the aspect that interested me. What interested me was the monologues Frank delivers throughout the show to US, the viewers.

He just randomly looks at the camera when there’s a monologue in his mind about a situation he’s in or when he’s talking to someone and he wants to mock them or tell us how grateful he is because of them. And those monologues can make you think twice and re-evaluate your entire point of view on human nature.

If you haven’t watched the show, watch it. It’s great! Me, being an Indian enjoyed watching American politics. Well, it’s actually more about how awesome and ruthless Frank is throughout the show, so that was more amazing.

To close this off, here’s a small list of monologues that Frank delivered in House Of Cards.

#1 
There’s no way to overpower a trickle of doubt than with a flood of naked truth.

#2 
What a martyr craves more than anything is a sword to fall on. So you sharpen the blade, hold it at just the right angle and then, 3….2….1………!

#3
Friends make the worst enemies.

#4
For those of us climbing to the top of the food chain, there can be no mercy. There is but one rule – Hunt or be hunted!

#5
Money is the McMansion in Sarasota that starts falling apart after 10 years. Power is the old stone building that stands for centuries.

#6
A great man once said – Everything is about sex. Except sex. Sex is about power.

#7
What you have to understand about my people is that they are a noble people. Humility is their form of pride. It is their strength; it is their weakness. And if you can humble yourself before them they will do anything you ask.

#8
Shake with your right hand but hold a rock with your left.

#9
The road to power is paved with hypocrisy and casualties. Never regret.

#10
When you’re fresh meat, kill and throw them something fresher.
