I'm not sure if this question was specifically directed at Voting in the Elections but in that respect, I never vote. Honestly, I try to keep out of the politics of our Country. There is just too many people saying too many things and I don't like any of them.
There really are so many problems with Government, both ours and others. First off I think the people elected to run our country are wrong. Granted, I don't know many people in charge right now but I'm pretty sure none of them are in it to help our country. Such a highly publicized job means alot of pay, money corrupts and corrupt people abuse their powers. I remember hearing not all that long ago that the MPs of my Country managed to rack up over a billion in expenses... Seriously.. Don't these people get paid enough? And where are the people who really do want to make a difference? I can't think of one major change to how our Country is run in the last few years.
All it ever seems to be is people talking about the E.U. Talking about how we should invest more money into our schools. How there needs to be change. These people want to make it look like their doing something, but in actually fact they're not. We're in a war we don't want to be in, with a Country that has a bigger lunatic for President than the Countries we're fighting. We're allowing Hundreds Of Thousands of immigrants into this country because the E.U says we have to.
How many of our MPs have been in Scandals? Made to resign... only to get another job within the system. If it was up to me, I'd remove every single person from the Government and then I'd appoint my own people. Educated people who know what this country needs, who have a clear goal and actually want to achieve it. The fate of our Country is in the hands of people who want changes, changes for other people, they're telling us what we need to do to make this a better Country. They're bringing changes that effect the people, but not them. And what's worse, the people don't want those changes.
Example : Dumbass... damnit, I can't remember his name. Meh, I'll call him Dumbass. He wants to bring National Service back to this Country. Of course he does, it doesn't effect him in the slighest. Now, I've mentioned this to a few people when I heard it. The adults said "Good, that'll sort the youth out" and the people who it would actually effect didn't like it one bit. This is a free Country, you can do what you want and don't have to do what you don't want to. Now how is it a free Country if you're being made to do something against your will? Does it make it okay just because everyone else has to do it? I don't think so.
The war, Killed Saddam, but still people are dying. I don't get what they're hoping for. Suddenly a stop to the suicide bombings? These people who are committing these attacks to gather together and go "look fellas, we've had a good run, we've killed a lot of their troops. But they're still here, maybe we should just give up?" That's not gonna happen. And who decided this war was gonna happen? Me? Was I asked? I don't think so, what about you? Did your opinion count? Nope, didn't think so. People who are not on the front line decided this, people in power who are in no danger what so ever. Ordinary people are being killed and these officials don't care because it's not affecting them. Put them on the front line, see how far they want to press witih the war then.
This I.D. crap that's coming to the Country soon. All a way of keeping tabs on you. DNA on a supercomputer linked all over the country, which is at risk from attacks from anyone. But still with all the obvious flaws... it's still going ahead.
I can't see anything I do really making a change to the way things are. It doesn't matter anyway, we have no choice, we gotta deal with whatever is coming our way. The Country is controlled by people who don't see the world from the same angle as the regular people, who don't really see the problems and don't have solutions. It's always going to be this way.
Okay, I'm sorry about that, I just got a little carried away. That's the Election vote. In regards to any other kinda vote. I've been out-voted many a time through various things. I don't care about the little things, I will vote for whatever I think is right, even if I'm the only one. Many a time I've been the only one to vote for a certain idea and made to look like an idiot in the process, but it's okay because it was my opinion and I voiced it.
I finally managed to complete Assassin's Creed yesterday. I was really hoping the story would continue. I hate it when it gets really interesting and I have to wait for the next installment of the series. Hitman Contracts anyone? Last video, on the plane, with Diana, new target? Couldn't wait. Love Blood Money. One day someone is going to make a great game. and make the sequel before the first is released. And release them both at the same time so that you don't have to wait... god I'd love that, seriously. But yeah anyway, AC was awesome, I loved every second of it and now I'm on a mission to find all the Flags and Kill The Templars. I've a new found love for just walking around the streets, haha, crazy. Most of the achievements I've got left are the ones for finding all the stuff etc. There is a 100 combo kill thing I don't quite understand.
Now that I'm done with it I will not be playing it as much. Don't get me wrong, I'll be playing it ALOT, but I'm leaving room for other games. COD4, Gears of War (Yes I remember the ranked games tonight) and Halo3, PGR4 etc.
11pm our time if I recall correctly Cookie? I think I'll play COD or Halo before then. Haven't been playing them thanks to AC, oh and the fact that Halo3 sucks :Z hahahahahahahahahahahah
Anyways, Thanks for reading.
