Because the abuses get all the publicity and people don't seem to look further for the real info.
Because we listen to stats without breaking them down to the real story.
Because we do not inform ourselves past the local or party driven news channels and what we read on some of the Social media sites.
Because when life gets tougher it is easier to have someone to blame for the problems than seek the solutions.
Because we are being fed that greed and materialism is the badge of success in this society and if you do not make it, it is ALWAYS your own fault.
Because we have not learned that a good government provides a safe and healthy haven for its citizen and that is not free nor doable on just a local level.
Because we are so busy taking sides we rarely come to the conclusion that most of us actually want the same thing, a job, a safe home a happy family and prosperous peaceful country.
We think more alike than not.
