Maybe uncertainty should be embraced. What's the rush to decide, unless it's "forced" upon you? Consider carefully all possible choices before deciding.
Difficulty score 17. No green.
Getting elected to public office is living on the public dole. That's about all that Bernie has done all his life.
There is more proof of Hillary's crimes than there is of the New York Times story about how Trump abuses women.
Don't you think it is disgusting (suspicious) how so many people go into government "service" and become millionaires in the process? This is a bi-partisan problem.
yuk another easy
Bernie's tax return show that 90% of his income was from his Senate salary. He is definitely not part of the bi-partisan problem of enriching himself through his public service.
I believe TallMike.
It is my belief that that Trump's winning of the nomination is a logical progression of that party's divisive practices and refusal to do anything other than cut taxes and raise spending on the military. The followers of that party after vehemently supporting their party's last President no denounce him not accepting their complicity in his election. They then vote in a Congressional majority they now denounce and even change their branding to Tea Party. Now that their congressional votes have been shown to have worked against them the denounce their elected leaders as "The Establishment" and vote for one of the worst human beings in the world. I hope someday these voters will wake up and accept they have been brain washed by right wing talk radio and Fox News.
Maybe it's time to reinvent public office. Have a transparent decision making process with proven performers nominated by an independent panel to a round table. Salary would be limited to twice the average wage and televised meetings and decisions reached by consensus. NO LOBBYISTS OR FORMER POLITICIANS ALLOWED. It would be seen as a privilege to serve ones country in the interest of bettering the lives of everyone. Once a year the people would vote - compulsory of course and those who polled at the bottom of the votes would be replaced by new members again chosen by an independent panel to obtain a cross section of ideas. Free thinking would be encouraged by another separate panel then discussed by the members of the round table.
The systems have in my opinion, in general become corrupt themselves and so often only have re-election in mind.
I again wish there were a "like" button here. SamanthaJoy, you're right on. Phil, I don't think it's time to reinvent public office. I think it's time to educate voters. There are outstanding politicians who have dedicated their lives to meaningful public service (I think our two Virginia senators are good examples). Then there are those who are unable to entertain a complex thought, and think only in soundbites: "taxes high" "abortion bad". They are unable to understand complexities of issues. As long as the voting public caters to those limited thinkers, we're in trouble. I think Hillary is the only candidate this round who is not a simpleton.
Imagine a round table including the likes of Richard Branson, Bill Gates, Dick Smith, Tony Robbins, Bono, Hugh Jackman, Sir David Attenborough, Kofi Annan, Fiona Stanley - might be worth a try!
The problem with that Phil is that it makes it easier to corrupt the small number of people. There should be public funded elections. No outside money for campaigns. No voter suppression, No gerrymandering. The vote of the people determines who holds office. That works.
I like Terry Pratchett's solution in "The Last Continent": Once elected, officials serve out their term from prison. Saves time and effort.
spellacked that would definitely accomplish prison reform!
Pretty easy. 14.
spellacked, if Hillary is elected that may happen.
of course if Donald is elected the rest of us may be there.
