It’s almost to the point of being so insufferable, that I wish they would ask for public sentiment on each decision they make. Hold a vote on wether or not the public wants to spend tax payer funds on X or Y. Now granted that’s why we voted them into office in the first place was their stance or position on certain topics, but how many times have politicians said one thing and done another.
Very true, we need more political willpower. Being strong-armed by the Duke Planation (as they call it over there) is embarrassing. I’m still furiously mad about that as you are.
On that note, isn’t that running government like a business? Competition got in the way.
