I'm not sure if I was clear enough in terms of the sheer magnitude of the problem and how much would need to be invested if you feel that whatever state money you're referring to was supposed to lead to radical changes.
The city does have things to show for money earned and given to, but what they have to show amounts to patches on a sinking ship and things unrelated to the problems I'm referring to.
I think you are wrong about that last paragraph. Neither party if perfect, but to say they're the same on the matter is false.
Of course this is bordering on going too far on this board, but this topic is political, so it is what it is.
You really haven't mentioned the problem. So I don't know exactly what you're referring to. Maybe it's not for the board, so thats fine.
I was going to say more, but it would be crossing the line. The short version, I think we both want a brighter future for all. I think the radical change needed isn't possible with the divisive, lying, greedy, money grubbing, non-transparent way we've been doing politics for a hundred years. I think it starts with trying to get people in office who EVERYONE can trust. And that's impossible with the current way we do things. If we could trust them, we would have no problem raising taxes, building new revenue streams if we knew the money would go where it needs to go to the people who need it most, so everyone wins.
But it's currently a dog eat dog, us against them world. And will continue to be without complete overhaul.
