    I hate when you vote someone in office, like the president for example.
    And once in office they stop listening to the people.
    I wonder how many people in the US have better ideas for better government for a
    better America but they will not take the time to listening.
    I do not think Congress for both parties do not know what they are doing.

    They ask for our comment , some had ask for ideas when they were running for office but I think they stop listen once they get in office.
    I know they can't listen to every ideas out there. and there are poeple with ideas
    they can't use.
    I do think they can take the time to listen. I took the to vote.

    What do yall think ?

    You can please SOME of the people SOME of the time, but you can't please ALL of the people ALL of the time.


    You seem to have buyer's remorse on your vote. I wonder how much of that is based on actual facts and true information, and how much of that is based on how your sources of information have primed and programmed you.

    Presidents during an election always talk like they're going to have dictatorial power, even though everyone knows they won't. (Well, .... some people know that.)

    After he get into office, he realizes that he has to fight battles he can win, not necessarily pursue the best of all plans, but rather the one that can actually be accomplished. What plan would be best "if" (like "if" you had unlimited dictatorial power to get whatever you wanted) is immaterial.

    Sure ! I have been reluctent to vote for "NON-represenatives" for years !

    You may depend on either being controled by poles of popular openion ,or you may trust in the the judgment of one you vote for ; however, you could be equally served by a morritorium on any new laws. [of cource my openion , being influenced by being born before the first atomic exploion ( thereby a NON-Mutent ) may be considered antiquated ; forexample, I can recall when President Nixon's "volentary wage and price freeze" only froze wages and thus caused housewifes to become additional wage-earners in order to contenue feeding their children :]

    The last General Election, that we had in the UK was the first time that I did not vote, and guess what, it did not make any difference.

    Now that you ask I was wondering what it would be like to have a few mutent powers.
    Any time there is a vote, if you at least vote for the lessor of all the bad choices, you have done better than not to have voted at all. Plus you haven't missed out on all those local issues that might have a real impact on your wallet. Hope that helps?

    It's notable that any system works only to the degree that participates believe in

    its workability and thus don't giveup when groups and other's lack of belief in

    the particular system threat the participate's effectiveness ; moreover , the situational imparative becomes the call for more extencive personal networking inorder to reform the system for its survival :
