this is not an article

In fact, this is just to write down my amazement about the lack of responsiveness people show in regard to governments lying to us. Clearly, something is wrong here: on the one hand, we take the effort to vote for our representatives in parliament, but on the other, when those voted in start representing lobbyists rather than voters, we stay silent or claim that anyone demanding true representation is naif.

So: why vote if you know your parliamentarian is going to represent lobbyists rather than you?
