Playing the BLAME Game

While i understand and totally get It's human nature to want to apportion blame When it comes to one's government remember Very rarely do the voting public agree With the choices made on their behalf In a democray once we have placed our tick in a box and our votes are tallied up It's then solely up to them to fulfill that duty and trust we have placed in them Unfortunately though when it comes to politics Once they are voted it's every person for the party collective And can anyone attest to meeting or seeing a politician who could look anyone directly in the eye without blinking And thinking first and foremost of what lie to tell as long as he or her can count on your vote And if anything was to go wrong willing to take or accept blame

Heya Christopher, very rare to get an honest politician that’s party affiliated, that’s why they have the whips to keep check on them, we’ve had some really good independent politicians here over the years, but alas could never form a government because of lack of numbers, indeed a very honest and pertinent write, cheers David

Indeed David The only true conscious politician in one who can not get into power and who is free to garnish an independent postion as they are not basing the basis of that decision on is it following popular persuasion rather than will ot cost me votes and popularity

I wish we had a true democracy; but beings it is a republic, it makes me rather sad as I am living in a state where my vote will never count.

You are so very right and not alone Caren in your thinking Show me any vote that really truly counts That can factually be backed up Or Not being said or coming out the mouth of a Politician On polling day
