While one might disagree with his point of view to feel responsible for his son’s death—the point Andrew makes about politics and politicians is a strong one. And one we all should not only agree with, but hate and try to change:
Not only Bush did, the Democrats did too. Recent news stated that 76% oppose the Iraq war, some of them strongly. And yet, politicians ignore us.
What is the point of elections when—once elected—the politicians act like Gods? Ignore the will of the masses?
Do you see any great leader in politics at the moment?
The most I see are corruption, lies, more lies and even more lies. Ethics, listening to the majority and do what is good for the country and the people have been replaced with taking care of one’s pocket and the well doing of a chosen few.
But that’s neither democratic nor democracy, right?
Isn’t that exactly why we all hate communism?
