Voters Are the Problem

I understand why people complain about politicians. However, the People elect those politicians so, ultimately, voters are the problem (assuming that elections are fair). Thomas Sowell may have said it best when he wrote in his "Measuring Force" column:

"Many people on various parts of the political spectrum are expressing a sense of disappointment with Obama. But I have not felt the least bit disappointed.

Once in office, President Obama has done exactly what his whole history would lead you to expect him to do — such as cutting the military budget and vastly expanding the welfare state. . . .

. . . Disappointing? No. Disgusting? Yes. The only disappointment is with voters who voted their hopes and ignored his realities."
