Unfortunately, political parties who professed ideology in the past have no ideology today. From socialism, the government and the people had purpose for existence. Today, capitalism has split society into too many parts. It takes war to unify the people. It takes poverty and illness to give people a cause for existence. The leaders of the political establishment consider the citizenry only on election day. What political party has produced a clear cut program for the country for the next few years? Do they consider the citizens below level of understanding, of idiocy?

She's dreaming because she's asleep at the wheel. For those of us who are awake, she is not our choice. Vote Netanyahu, vote Lieberman, whatever, but vote Right.

5. Reuven Predicts
Reuven Brauner ,   Raanana, Israel   (02.10.09)
By the time all the dust settles later tonight, we will find that nothing has changed. Same faces. Same coalitions. Same politics. Same nonsense. What's more, not one person elected to Knesset today will be attentive to the voice of the public tomorrow. We will be all ignored for the next four years, as has been always the case. Democracy only works when there is direct accountability to the electorate which is blatantly absent in Israel. In Israel, we vote for faceless parties who have nothing to do with their voters the next day and are completely irresponsive to the concerns of the very people who put them in office. A sham.
