Heheh. I just don't know why it doesn't occur to people to think more clearly after they see how this method works out... They just turn around later and complain about the consequences of the policies that they were once defending and supporting. I don't understand their affinity to just settling on the best that's available instead of demanding better.

I don't get that, it should be through the manipulation of the politicians... not their peers. People aren't really doing anything to change the things they dislike about politicians, and you can't just change people's minds to make them happy, it doesn't work unless they want to change, and if they did, they would have!
It's weird because most voters are above 18 and should have some sense. It seems irrational and illogical if all of this is really the case.
Jon Stewart made a lot of sense when he said reporters should be asking the hard hitting questions, and citizens should be doing the same and not accept the stupid excuses and PR that politicians use to cover up their mistakes and impose any personal agenda on the citizens.
