Party, over

Party, over

Parties no longer have country interests foremost. Their interest is to stay in power or oppose other parties. Representatives could quickly make change; disassociate from party, declare a country first policy, represent voters, make decisions that are fact based with long term vision. If your rep does not have the qualification, time for voters to act.

Pick a rep with experience in decision making, responsibility for decisions; honesty, integrity foremost. Field narrows quickly. Increase civil service with factual statistics and dedicated professionals. Decrease influence of con artists and lobbyists.

The party has gone on too long. Those who enjoyed the intermingling have left, music gone, punchbowl empty, small self interest groups remain (proportional representation). Party is over, lights out, tomorrow is here.
