It makes self-government impossible. If you have selfish, ignorant citizens, you’re gonna get selfish, ignorant leaders.
Everyone complains about politicians- they say they suck. Politicians are American. They went to American Universities. They were raised in America. They live in America. They were elected by American citizens. This is the best that we can do. This is what we have to offer. It’s what are system produces.
Maybe it’s not the politicians that suck, maybe it’s the public that made them that sucks. Because if it were the fault of the politicians than where are the bright, honest and intelligent Americans ready to step in and save the nation and lead the country? They don’t exist folks.
I solved this political dilemma by staying home on election day. If you vote, you have no right to complain. People like to twist that around. If you voted for someone who is elected, who screws things up, than you caused the problem- and you have no right to complain. I have every right to complain about the mess that you created that I had nothing to do with. -George Carlin
