A pretty alarming turn of events isn't it? Two countries, one, susposedly the leader of the free world.....the other not that long ago, part of the
communinist Soviet Union. Both have some issues about their past elections. But, the events past that point seems a little surprising to me. In
one, the people left their nice comfy homes, their jobs and the secruity that goes with them and converged on the capitol, demanding answers. They
shut down much of the economy, not to mention the capitol for a week braving freezing temperatures. And, well, they forced the government to address
their issues and gee, the investigation will be televised on national tv.
In the other, it's been mostly quiet, ya, there's rumors floating around, the media isn't saying sqaut, and well, the people tend to be just going
on their way through their daily routine, work, home, buy, buy, spend!!!
I truely hope that they are just rumors, otherwise, later down the road, we will be looking back and wondering...
Since when do we need to learn about democracy and freedom from the former communist countries that are practically babes in their search for it...
And, well, why didn't we learn the lesson that they seemed to be blasting at us from across the world, and take action.....
