Just wondering, we cant blame the politicians, because they will do what they can get away with. Why are Utican's incapable of voting for people that are competent? Or is that some people believe that utica is good shape and therefore not in need of change?

What is it? please tell me....

It's a one-two mindfuok:

The Observer Dispatch, and to some degree, the tv/radio media has let us down. They force feed you who they are aligned with.

The politicians count on voter apathy and the poofy soundbites about "jobs" and "taxes".

The cycle can be sustained like a standing wave for decades. They support like-minded criminals. Self reinforcing in the cycles. The politcos enable crooked cops, DPW, FD. Here we are.

The founding Fathers never would have agreed with the types of career politicians we are hosting like parasites.

I propose putting a 10 year hiatus on voting for anyone whose last name ends with a vowel.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
