Don't get me wrong, I didn't come here to attack anyones beliefs systems, I´m just asking, I seem to have lost all faith in the ruling political
class, the leading candidates are just but pawns in the game, the real king is profit.
Campaigns I have lived through, every time I am promised the golden egg, or better still, fair unbiased education, media responsibility towards the
end consumer, peace and equality on the streets, that my elected politicians will not be crooks or keep secrets this time.
That they are getting it right this time, but that if one wins they'll have to start from scratch, and if the other one wins things stay the same.
Every time its the same thing, I'm not naive, I'm not a dreamer, maybe a little bit, but I firmly believe that things could be better, that we
shouldn't have to worry from loosing our houses, or that the transition from oil to clean energetics would not cost us everything we have, that if
the rulers gave a little more, were a bit more fair, or really cared at all , resources wouldn't be wasted on rhetorics and political campaigns,
instead used on giving better education, regulating the media, helping the common man get a decent job where debt wouldn't be exploited.
What makes you think that this time will be different when none of the other times made any difference at all? and when it was making a difference got
shot or silenced or tied?
Why should this time the elected ruler be any different, when even now, we see them from what they truly are.
Why does "democracy" cost me SO much???
Why must all my choices be black or white, when reality is a series of shades of gray.
I lost my faith.
When they say that -"You dont have to vote for THEM, there are many independent candidates"-
What for! those are just for show to remove votes from the "special" groups of the population, to give the illusion of choice?
some independents are funded by the opposing parties to steal precious votes from one and other.
Why will this time be any better?
Any ideas, do you know something I have missed?
It doesn't look its going to get any better, no matter who wins, I dislike all my choices, I'm not happy or comfortable with the way things are.
I do my best to help and be a good law abiding citizen.
I pay my taxes, I am well educated, I consider myself semi conscious most of the time, and aware enough to see this is all a joke on us.
Or am I wrong and my vote will make all the harmful elements that suck the nation dry go away??
The way I see it, only on an individual level can we make things change, educating ourselves for real. We cant make the world change yet, but if all
of us really compromised on a personal level, we wouldn't even need presidents or even countries...
