Agree to that one. I still have hope of a real civil election, but as long as people running these will do anything to stay in power or get elected, and as long as the brain dead people fall for this crap, it will it never be. All I want to hear is "This is what I've done, this is why I'm going to do", the rest is all smoke screens to confuse the confusable.
And the reason both sides can confuse and lie to the public is money pure and simple.
Britain is by no means perfect, and there are plenty of things we could learn from the US political system, but take a look at how little the three main parties spent on the 2010 election: http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2010 ... n-campaign
Mittens and Barry are spending that a week at the moment? It's disgusting, it really is.
Everything is such a bigger scale in the US very hard to compare. Great Britain can be canvassed in a helo on weekend. Canada is a much larger country than the US but is just about 20% less of everything. Yep, tons of money. Employs lots of people who want to get their guy in so they can maybe get a 4 year gig, then become a lobbyist when it's over and make real money. How many 24 hours news networks, do they really need, how many reporters really need to be covering the White House. Only alternative is to limit everything and who really wants to do that. Nope, ain't going to happen unless some alien race lands on this planet and tells them to or else.
