Politics plays a role in all our lives even when we choose to ignore it as much as possible. Decisions made by these people quite often either rub us the wrong way or we are happy to see them doing something we want done. What really bothers people is when they make decisions which strike us as absurd or even out of touch with the world we live in now. We get even more riled up when it seems their decisions have been influenced by interest groups instead of listening and acting on what is in the best interests of the country. In most countries, it seems to be the interests of the political parties and not their own people which take priority. This has to change. How? People have to get more involved in their respective countries and speak out when they disagree with a policy. If you are not happy with what is going on take action, peacefully protest, or start a petition. You do not have much choice, if there are not many people offering themselves to run for office. Consider running yourself. I know that the options available to people vary from country to country. Politics will only change if we do something about it. Staying home and doing nothing does not cut it. That is a recipe for getting what you already had before. Change comes about when people stand up and say enough!
