If your government (local or national) accomplishes one thing in 2013, what would you like that to be?
I’m going to try and do both, a national and a local level. And that’s because the roles of the two are different and what we want from them is different.
For 2013 if the local government does nothing else but fix our roads that would be great. In fact that is exactly the need of the hour. Instead of short term fixes that just causes more problems we need long term solutions. We don’t need the roads to be fixed temporarily so that it gets fucked up within a few months and the people getting the contracts again and again and making a lot of our tax money for no reason. This is a political game and people are just milking the state and it’s people. So if they fix the roads by proper means and get it done as fast as possible.
For a national level, just fix your political parties and weed out the old, corrupt, uncouth, uneducated, evil, impotent, superstitious, greedy, fear mongering assholes and only allow qualified people to be in charge. That would be a huge deal.
