We must ask serious questions

by Barry Carter

As we elect various politicians year after year and our problems persist decade after decade we must ask serious questions: 1) What is wrong? 2) Does it matter who we elect? 3) If it does matter then why do so few people vote?

Perhaps as we consider the drama of the recently election we are doing little more than shuffling the deck chairs on the Titanic. Perhaps our problems are bigger than are possible to fix within the present paradigm regardless of who we elect.
