In some countries it seems that way.

why be a responsible politician and look for alternative ideas when you can screw the voter and make them pay for it ?
Seems to be the way these days.

They don't set out to do it. It just winds up that way after a series of someone else's fuck ups adding to their own. Decisions still have to be made and to be honest, there's just not enough shit to go around. There would be if they'd butt out and stop trying control everything with inflexible blanket policies that are supposed to last for years.
We're changing that!

Second nature... they've done it for so long they don't know they're doing it when they're doing it....if that makes any sense, lol...

Begging the question much?

Good to know you're only worth ignoring, anyway

quietlitany · 31-35, M
[@1725,firefall] It's fair criticism, at least the question is asked, maybe an answer could lead the way, eh?
Corruption. The citizens need to revolt!

I think a lot of them don't initially mean to, but it ends up that way. The power system has been corrupted to the point that the citizens' wellbeing is secondary objective. Politicos also need to please their peers, their party, and their donors. Because of gerrymandering and crooked election laws, the actual voters themselves have much diminished importance. They just manipulate voters until they have what they need, and then it's back to the bottom of the pile for you!

I mean, look at what just happened lately. Equifax loses the personal financial info of over 140million people, and now the government has conveniently given them immunity to class action lawsuits. Why? They don't deserve it. They collected our personal info without our express permission, sold it, lost it, and now our financial wellbeing is threatened. The entire company should be paid out to the affected citizens, but nope. They're more important than we are. Immunity. So what's the punishment or consequences for them having lost all that vital info? Nothing apparently. With no consequence, do you feel secure that it won't happen again?

Oh, and what about Wells Fargo? Opening unauthorized accounts in their clients names. They're also immune under this new bill. Congress is basically telling us that it's not our money. They don't need our permission to do as they please with it. They don't need to protect our money or our info. And oh, good luck opting out, you can't! The finance industry basically owns us. So we can sit around happily until they cause another lovely little bubble and lose all OUR money, while taking the nice big golden parachute themselves. Just like last time, $13 trillion worth in government bailout? Good lord, there's no doubt about it. Voters are just a nuisance to them, money is what they really serve.

Way too many distractions. Most will have to lose their freedoms before they realize they had them.
nudistsueaz · 56-60, F
