  1. Sad... but most people will not be willing to open their pocketbooks and pay higher taxes so unfortunately we all suffer.

  2. Obviously all these things are core services that everyone relies on at sometime in their life or another. People's reluctance to fund these services is the real crisis - a democratic crisis that threatens the very foundations of civilised society. What is going wrong with people's education as citizens? Who or what is teaching them to be very bad citizens?
