‘The government’ is an easy scapegoat. Let’s blame ‘the government’.
The government is made up of everyday people, like me and like you. There is not a difference. The ‘problem’ sits squarely with each individual person that refuses to accept responsibility for themselves and all that the phrase entails …including the responsibility to keep oneself informed and knowledgeable of the issues of the day and how those issues may or may not affect their chosen path in this life, for we were all granted the free will to choose.
