Wisdom

This seems a proper follow-on to yesterday's post about voters who describe themselves as "undecided." True "undecided" voters (not the ones who just want you to go away) are often citizens who have never absorbed (or been taught) how government might work in a democracy of, by, and for the people. Getting them to take enough interest to participate is step one.

The big issue and could be a crippling one is that we are very divided. To feel it's not working means you're a side that didn't win. It can prove disillusioning. It has for me but even more that often politicians run on what they never intend to do. It's part of why people drop out of the system. They should not but not hard to see-- especially if both major parties offer nothing for them in terms of help for a better life. When the parties can't even define what that would mean. We just saw it acted out again this week-end.
