Why has it come to this, and how? Unfortunately this is the only system we have so why not keep
the politicians accountable after they gain office?
We can, if we want to, elect a government with conditions, that if they don't keep promises they forfeit their office. It's easy; they're out and then the second choice takes over. I don't imagine it would take too long for them to figure it out!
Better yet, why not take the time to read platforms and choose. While we still can!
