Most people care that their lives are becoming harder - or more painful,
Yes I know, I undrstand and I agree - but instead of just whinging and moaning they should also do something about it - if they aren't prepared to try
and take some sort of control or involvement in their own life and the things that affect them directly then whose fault is it really for the
predicament they are in?
I don't mean the weak, infirm and the less able etc - I'm talking about the majority of normal, everyday folk.
they just do not see any alternatives to our present system.
Then change the system!
I think only about 30 percent of people voted in the last election.
Yes, because from the day people start school they are taught not to question and to accept as fact the information given to them.
Active involvement in political / social issues are discouraged and those who do so are viewed as intefering busy bodies.
Of course the exact opposite can be said for those who have had the benefit and luxury of a private education.
I did NOT vote and I will not vote for the charlatans on offer.
Too many people fought for our right to vote - personally I vote in as many elections etc as I can - but you must do as you see fit, but I've got to
say that no vote is simply a vote for maintaining the status quo.
Are you actively involved in any form of protest or attempts to bring about reform, of any kind?
I want my MP to have life experience, to have had a job in the real world, for starters.
It would probably help - but as you don't vote you don't really have any say on the subject do you.
