You might ask? "How did the hypothetical country get
into such a mess?"
The answer is they did it to themselves: The Citizens
have put little effort into electing decent reputable candidates. They have been more interested in their lives and pleasures than in the care of the country.
They wave flags and buy bumper stickers that say we
support the troops because that makes them feel good.
They do nothing about the corrupted politicians they
elect. Every problem they have was created by their
elected politicians who bent and distorted the
Constitution and the laws of their founding fathers.
One solution to this countries dilemma is to 'kick the
bums out.' Both Major Parties have become corrupted.
They have Lied to the citizens that voted for them and
the citizens know it! If the citizens tolerate lies,
then they are asking for more! What the citizen has
to acknowledge to themselves is that both parties have
violated their trust and have intentionally helped to
destroy this beautiful country of theirs ... the land
It's Time for change! It's time to really study the
issues and really know the candidates. If this isn't
done, the good citizens will only get more of the
same. They need politicians who keep their word not
posturing windbags. Leadership means making hard
decisions, not reading a speech that somebody else
wrote. That's All that is coming from the Major
Parties why ... because the citizens have allowed them
to lie to them, still voting and supporting them. The
citizens bear the fault. They failed to elect ethical candidates and to keep a watchful eye on them.
It's Time to Look at Third Party Candidates. We
aren't endorsing any one Party. One of the definitions
of insanity, is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. We know what we will get if we don't.
Will the Citizens of this hypothetical country wake up
in time to prevent a suicide? In this century, we
have seen countries disintegrate because of massive
corruption. Can it happen to the hypothetical
country? If the citizens fail to act intelligently,
you bet it can...
