I was thinking on the way over from my girlfriends house this morning, its ridiculous how little the US holds its leaders and government accountable for shit compared to other countries. Carl Rove and Alberto Gonzales for instance - straight up 'forgetting' information or refusing to answer questions due to executive privilege. Why does our population let that shit slide? Do people just think Capitol Hill is another Hollywood or something?
thats why im glad i live in canada...where if something goes to shit, they just call an election and dissolve the current government...instead of having elections that cost billions of dollars, and primaries and all that bullshit
a friend of mine from new england was driving through georgia on a road trip and he ends up getting pulled over for speeding. the cop goes "son you were goin 80 in a 60. no one goes that fast through georgia." my friend responds with "well, Sherman did"
