How do we break out of this? How do we fix “the system?”
As Mark shared, we take it to the streets. We need to stop being passive about the information we take from these politicians. We need to question. We need to think. We need to hold these politicians to a higher standard than soundbites and media clips that look good on TV, but don’t solve anything in the real world.

Magic Quotes from Mark J
It’s not the politicians. It’s us.
Consider today the instructional manual.
You cannot elect the same people who lie, cheat, and steal…
They turned these quote-on-quote ‘debates’… into sound bites and media clips.
We gave up this great political system to what it is today…
Do your freakin’ homework and hold these people responsible for the bullshit they’re putting out there.
Make your own choice by thinking.
You need to demand thinking.
Become a self-directed thinker.
We need to come out of these elections united.
We don’t have a political problem…We have a self-directed thinking problem.
