Re: Educate the consumers

"Educated" votes ? Between what ? 2 corrupt choices when one votes, if at all, for the least worst ?

Only fear will bring the corrupt politicians back where they should be. Only fear of the government's power will bring the corrupt companies back where they belong.

Fear of the people' wrath, not that "educated" feel good mumbo-jumbo. Show me ONE instance where corruption has been fixed by this "education" and not where violence and bloodshed was the tool that fixed (temporarily) the same garbage that we have here, now.

Did "education" of the American's fix the taxation without representation of the colonies and did the Brits apologize and graciously fix their ways or did it take many deaths to get rid of the situation that seems to have caught up with us again ?

What politicians represent the taxpayers' interests and are not working for corporations ? Who will we vote after being "educated" that would not be corrupt and not have any fear to show his corruption since there is no fear of retribution for outright bribery ?

So we should rely on these "corrupt" politicians to fix this for us? My point was that the more consumers know/understand, the more pressure there will be to fix this, as well as innovation to combat it.

Uh, yeah, since the "choices" presented will be a) corrupt politician, bad OR b) lying politician becoming corrupt, even worse.

The pressure is for the few to raise in revolt and wake up the idiots that believe what they are told on TV, to reach a critical mass and have the vermin scurry away.

It still takes "educated" people for REAL action to happen. You're simply asking government to uncorrupt itself, and that will NEVER happen.
