I have the answer.

All politicians are assholes. Nothing new there.

The only time they put aside their personal agendas and pretend to be working for the public good (which is their actual job) is when there is a crisis of some kind.

Everybody wanted to do the right thing after 9/11, everybody wanted to help after Katrina, all sorts of efforts were going to be made to help out in Haiti.

But when things go back to normal, the pretense of doing the right thing goes out the window to be replaced with doing what benefits them.

The answer seems pretty obvious. In order to get politicians to do their job, we must live in a state of crisis all the time.

We need hurricanes, and suicide bombers and plagues and economic turmoil and earthquakes. All The Time.

Of course the other simpler answer, and one that would raise everybody’s quality of life rather than lower it, would  be to simply get rid of the politicians.

Maybe we could outlaw it like witchcraft.

  1. The poor keeps getting poorer is because everyone is on the dole for handouts. If the “poor” would not be buying Navagators and Escalades, spend the money on housing, their way of life would improve. But the government keeps them dependent on them, and like you aluded to, have no money to give them. That is the biggest problem. THEY EXPECT THE GOV. AND RICH TO G-I-V-E- THEM EVERYTHING.

    I think you commented on the other post here. I agree with you, the problem is that this situation exists.
    There exists now an entire generation of americans who feel they are entitled to certain things because they are americans.
    There exists now an entire generation of americans who believe that they do not have to be responsible for their actions. You can not fix this. They were brought up this way and taught this way, they know nothing else. You almost can’t blame them, you have to blame their teachers.

    Just like in the middle east there’s a generation of kids who are being raised to hate americans without freely making this decision for themselves.

    You can’t fix these things any more than you can unlearn your first spoken language.

    You have to teach the next generation something different and wait for the older broken generation to die out.
