An article by Uni Royalties Ltd. with 587 words and 697 views Oil is a vital, strategic material; any change in its price or supply has an impact on almost every aspect of peoples’ lives. Oil, along with the other fossil fuels (coal and natural gas) account for 90 percent of the energy used in industrial countries and 75 percent of the energy worldwide. In 1900, coal was king; it was the basis for 55 percent of all the world’s energy use. Oil and natural gas were barely on the scene, contributing between them just three percent of the world’s energy. A century later, according to a British Petroleum report in 2006, coal provided 25 percent of the world’s energy, natural gas 23 percent, and oil was still dominant at 37 percent. Short Term There’s Plenty of Oil Almost 40 years ago, The Club of Rome published a report that spooked everyone; the world was running out of oil it said. The “Limits to Growth” study predicted the world’s oil reserves would be exhausted by 1990. They were wrong. The Club of Rome’s experts said, in 1972, there were only 550 billion barrels of oil left. Since then, there have been many other doom and gloom predictions about oil shortages. So far, they’ve all been wrong. According to The Oil and Gas Journal (January 1, 2009), there are about 1.3 trillion barrels of proven oil reserves left in the world. At the current rate of use – about 85 million barrels a day – there’s enough oil left to last 41 years. And, this doesn’t take into account the-who-knows-how-many barrels of undiscovered reserves. High Oil Prices Bring Political Stability Several Persian Gulf States, Russia, former Soviet Central Asian Republics, Venezuela, Mexico, Colombia, and Nigeria depend heavily on high oil prices. The income from oil supports whatever political and social stability these countries have. But, in the spring of 2000, most of the nations listed were pretty shaky even with oil prices flirting with historical highs of $30 U.S. a barrel. Oil Companies not in the Democracy Business Few things can cause people in the boardrooms of international corporations to break out in a cold sweat more than political instability. If the certainty and stability that keeps executives calm is achieved through authoritarian governments, so be it. As far as corporations are concerned, their business generally is not promoting democracy. Looking at the world’s major oil producers more than a few of them have non-democratic governments. In fact, the list is almost a roll-call of authoritarian regimes. Saudi Arabia is an absolute monarchy. Kazakhstan is a dictatorship. Brunei (absolute monarchy); Turkmenistan (dictatorship); Libya (dictatorship); Iran (theocracy); Iraq (war-ravaged); Kuwait (absolute monarchy), and on, and on. High Oil Prices Good for Security Having really tough governments in place tends to ensure stability – for a while. But, the repression worries the people whose job it is to be anxious about global security. As they sit in their universities, and departments of strategic studies and suck on the ends of their pencils they visualize a world with low oil prices, and most of them don’t like what they see. The conventional thinking is that a steady flow of oil wealth keeps the lid on revolution. Oil-rich dictators and monarchs can toss a few goodies to the masses in the form of hospitals and schools. This keeps them from agitating for freedom and democracy. The New York Times reported on March 28, 1999 on the effects of low oil income: “In Mexico, Nigeria, Venezuela, Algeria, and even in the world’s largest oil producer, Saudi Arabia, shrunken budgets are straining social and political cohesion.” UniRoyalties, Ltd. is the leading source to evaluate your oil and gas lease to maximize your asset withdrawal.

SEO And Politics

From Graywolf’s “How to Be a Dirty Digger” to Greenberg’s “The Saboteurs of Search” we learn that online marketing and politics play on similar grounds. In the real life presidential election campaigns run behind closed doors and their actors often play dirty tricks on each other; for “All’s fair in love and war.” The final purpose of the game is political supremacy. Power. In SEM… the top of Google’s SERP. The the search engines can be manipulated is no secret, but most SEOs try a positive approach and define their strategies as ethical or “white-hat.” In Aaron Wall’s dictionary, there is no such thing as ethical SEO, because, no matter how you look at it, once you employ a technique (any) to manipulate the search engines, you “SPAM.” The only question is what kind of spam is acceptable from a Google perspective. Part of the answer comes from Google’s Webmaster Guidelines (quality guidelines – specific guidelines), more comes from Bruce Clay’s SEO code of ethics, and if that’s not enough you could always rely on an answer from authority SEO professionals like the owners of this very blog, and all the reputable gurus out there. Now back to SEO as a dirty business. Strangely enough in the real life it is a lot easier to harm than to heal. Somehow supremacy and power are achieved faster through war than peaceful negotiation. No surprise here: peaceful negotiation takes time to find a compromise, which, in many situations, is not what the parts involved hoped to achieve. SEM is quite similar. For every winner there’s a loser, and many companies that rely on Google for traffic employ questionable SEO tactics to achieve good rankings for their most competitive keyword phrases. But this is nothing compared to those that employ “political tricks” to harm their competitors. Forbes lists in “The Saboteurs of Search” two techniques (out of seven): Google bowling and Google insulation. Google bowling is pure evil and it deals with how to frame a competitor’s site as a spamming site to convince Google to drop its rankings. This type of negative SEO deals with links. Many links at once. These links are generated automatically, over a short period of time, with a special software. They’ll mostly come from bad neighbours and they’ll have the same anchor text, to make the spam picture complete. Google is just a machine, so there’s no real way for this machine to know who is behind the link spam. The “guilty” site might lose its position in the SERP or even get banned. Some sites never recover after a Google ban, others see their rankings vanishing and their pages landing into the supplemental results and they never learn why. If something like this happened to your site, all you can do is to find out who hates you so much. Google bowling is not the only negative SEO technique that might hurt a competitor site. Tattling, as correctly identified by Forbes, is something that even Google’s Matt Cutts encourages, by asking people to report sites that buy links. I really wonder how Google verifies such complaints. Basically anyone can assume that a contextual link in one of my blog entries is a paid link (what if I monetize my site with V7 contextual?). There are many other questionable SEO strategies to demolish competition. I happen to consider them a waste of time and energy. The Forbes article quoted above has a pretty interesting statement: “Matt Cutts, a senior software engineer for Google, says that piling links onto a competitor’s site to reduce its search rank isn’t impossible, but it’s extremely difficult.” If negative SEO is difficult we are entitled to believe that it happens seldom. I think that, in some niches, it happens quite often. But these are simple theories. As long as I do not have the data to back them up, I prefer to keep my analysis to a minimum of delivering information. There are simpler ways to harm competition. Scraper sites harm writers by copying their content. And it is not that difficult to understand where the “harm” lies. For example, when a scrapper copies the content of your site, your rankings are harmed, especially if the scraper site happens to have more authority than yours. There is not much you can do to protect your rankings and your copyright. But if you decide to report the guilty site to the search engine (file a compliant) the search engine will remove the site from its index for 10 days, to give you (the copyright holder) the time to sue for infringement. Many bloggers wake up one day to find their articles duplicated on obscure sites, MFA sites and so on. They are often frustrated and they ask in forums the classic: what can I do if someone copies my content. Well, now you have a possible answer: you don’t need to go to court to punish a site for copyright infringement. It is enough to file a complaint at Google and you’ve got the guilty site out of the Google SERPs for at least 10 days. Careful though, a fraudulent copyright complaint can get you in trouble, and not just with the search engines. So don’t just go around filing complaints. The Google ban theoretically lasts for just 10 days, but the trust rank of the accused site will lower. Another similar complaint and the site’s integrity will be seriously questioned. Just remember: what goes around, comes around. Published at: https://www.isnare.com/?aid=172780&ca=Internet

The Chlorine Philosophy

Chlorine has been a pioneer in cleaning and sanitizing pools and tubs. It has widely been used for several years now. Chlorine has been effective in keeping away harmful debris and microorganisms from the pool. However, chlorinated pools has been said to be very difficult to maintain. It seems that a lot of people do not like chlorine as their sanitizer anymore. Can we blame them? Seriously, shifting to a new sanitizer can be both pricy and troublesome. This means having to go off your cleaning routine and chemicals and changing into a new one. Now, this wouldn’t be a problem for some people. But for others, it may mean the world. These people just do not want to partake in it. Some people are just not use to change and going out of their pool management routine is just out of the question. So what’s left for these people? What should these people do to be able to continue with their chlorinated pool? What’s left for people who just do not want to make the shift? Any problem can be best solved by enumerating what the problem really is. By doing this, one is better acquainted with the dilemma. With that said, the questions is; “why is chlorinated pools hard to maintain?” Let us get on the bottom of things. A chlorine treated pool is hard to maintain because: 1. The chlorine levels in the pool switch from high to low very quickly 2. There is a constant need to add in chlorine (usually on a daily basis) 3. Chlorine shock does not work at several times of the day Now, let’s get down to business. The following are statements that will address the very issues that are stated above. FACT 1: Chlorine becomes ineffective after fighting off microorganisms Imagine chlorine as a band of 4 brothers. They were playing rock music in a bar when 8 men with guns dropped by. These gunmen threaten to hurt everyone in that bar if they do not get what they want. And of course, they want all the jewelry and money of all the people inside the bar. The 1st and 2nd brother sprung into action, fighting off the gunmen. The 3rd and 4th brother flung in next. But because the brothers were out numbered, they lost the battle. Chlorine is just like this. When a chlorine particle is off fighting a contaminant, this particle cannot take on another contaminant. It’s a one-on-one kind of show. A chlorine particle becomes ineffective once it is in the midst of its battle. There is a constant need to add in chlorine to the people to aid the ones who are already preoccupied. It’s like calling the police on those gunmen. This fact explains the first two statements of the problem. FACT 2: Chlorine shock is ineffective when faced with the sun Chlorine is null when faced with the sun. That’s it. It just doesn’t work when the sun is shinning. This explains the 3rd statement of the problem. The solutions: – Continue adding chlorine to your pool. Use water test strips to help you. Do not get irritated if your pool needs more chlorine. It needs chlorine to be able to protect you. – Shock your pool after the dark or early morning. There is always a solution. Now that you know what they are, apply them to your chlorine pool philosophy and everything will be alright. Published at: https://www.isnare.com/?aid=820858&ca=Home+Management

The True Philosophy of a Cat

The Man felt very despondently. He knew that the Cat well. One day, his cat was sick. The doctor had said there wasn’t anything more that could be done,that he should take the Cat home and make him as comfortable as possible. “Why do you cry, Man? “the Cat asded.”Because you can’t bear the thought of losing me?Because you think you can never replace me? “The Man nodded “yes.”    “And where do you think I’ll be when I leave you?”the Cat asked. The Man shrugged helplessly. “Close your eyes, Man,” the Cat said. The Man gave him a questioning look, but did as he was told. The Man was very sad. He knew that the Cat’s days were numbered.The doctor had said there wasn’t anything more that could be done,that he should take the Cat home and make him as comfortable as possible. “What color are my eyes and fur?” the Cat asked. “Your eyes are gold and your fur is a rich, warm brown.” the Man replied.    “And where is it that you most often see me?”asked the Cat. “I see you…on the kitchen windowsill watching the birds…on my favorite chair…on my desk lying on the papers I need…on the pillow next to my head at night.” “Then, whenever you wish to see me, all you must do is close your eyes.” said the Cat.    “Pick up that piece of string from the floor——there, my toy.” The Man opened his eyes, then reached over and picked up the string. It was about two feet long and the Cat had been able to entertain himself for hours with it. “Now take each end of the string in one hand.”the Cat ordered. The Man did so. The man stroked the Cat on his lap and sighed.The Cat opened his eyes, purred and looked up at the Man. A tear rolled down the Man’s cheek and landed on the Cat’s forehead.The Cat gave him a slightly annoyed look. “The end in your left hand is my birth and the end in your right hand is my death. Now bring the two ends together” the Cat said. The Man complied. “You have made a continuous circle” said the cat. “Does any point along the string appear to be different, worse or better than any other part of the string?” The Man inspected the string and then shook his head “no”. “Close your eyes again” the Cat said. “Now lick your hand.” The Man widened his eyes in surprise. The Man felt foolish, licking his hand, but he did as he was told. He discovered what a cat must know, that licking a paw is very calming and allows one to think more clearly. He continued licking and the corners of his mouth turned upward into the first smile he had shown in days. He waited for the Cat to tell him to stop,and when he didn’t, he opened his eyes. The Cat’s eyes were closed.The Man stroked the warm, brown fur, but the Cat was gone. The Man shut his eyes hard as the tears poured down his face. He saw the Cat on the windowsill, then in his bed, then lying across his important papers. He saw him on the pillow next to his head, saw his bright gold eyes and darkest brown on his nose and ears. He opened his eyes and through his tears looked over at the circle of string he still held clutched in his hand. One day, not long after, there was a new Cat on his lap. She was a lovely calico and white…very different from his earlier beloved Cat and very much the same. “Just do it” the Cat said. “Lick your hand,think of me in all my familiar places, think about all the pieces of string.” Published at: https://www.isnare.com/?aid=730172&ca=Pets

The Robbins’ Philosophy

For different people, the value of life holds different weights. Success is defined differently depending on one’s perspective. Today, many life-changing philosophies express the value of achievement and fulfillment within the confines of finding a tangible passion. In the pursuit of happiness, people turn to life coaches and inspirational giants to help them achieve the success that they desire. One of these giants is Tony Robbins. Already regarded as a successful life coach and motivational speaker, Robbins possesses a positive outlook that he willingly shares. Thinking the Robbin’s Way has become a philosophy that is applied to reach one’s life potential, financial freedom, and purpose driven living. His status and charm suggests that finding a dynamic journey towards a life of success is possible. The Robbins’ Philosophy can be summarized in this quote: The only true security in life comes from knowing that every single day you are improving yourself in some way. These words of wisdom suggest two things which are improvement come from the science of achievement and achievement breeds an intricate art of life fulfillment. Knowing that there is room for improvement and focusing all our energies to reach our potential transcends the boundaries and limitations set even by the institutional structures today. As one can say, success knows no race, gender, religion, or financial status. Tony Robbins also believes in transforming your dreams into reality. By following certain rules to become a result-oriented person, following a direction towards a vision will help make you the success that you believe you are. Tony Robbins helps build the foundation to drive a different outlook to life. Whatever your goals are, his philosophy will always help you find the momentum to achieve it. Tony Robbins’ intricate thoughts contain a plethora of different ideas. First, he maintains the importance of the physical body in connection with one’s emotional state. Controlling the physical state will prevent you from making emotional decisions that can go wrong most of the time. Another important note is his view on the importance of reflection. Having regular reflection will allow you to ask questions about yourself as a feedback to your actions. Thus, the quality of your life is proportional to the quality of questions you ask yourself. Reflection and meditation is perhaps the one important thing that people overlook. Meditation and self-talk puts us in a position where we rate ourselves and give ourselves our own life-score. Knowing our life-score will let us know where we are and how to get where we want to be. Tony Robbins emphasizes that understanding ones self will keep us in constant check with our sense of achievement and fulfillment. Tony Robbins also borrows the psychological concepts of pain and pleasure and how rewards and hurting can help mold our outlook in life. Tony Robbins also values creativity during the time of routine and as a tool to escape being stuck. Doing the unexpected is a way to break out our shell and move forward.

Power And Politics

Many of the leaders in our society are guided by unhealthy intentions. Instead of seeking to serve the people and heal our nation’s ills, their actions and decisions are primarily motivated by their desire for power. Many of the people running our country are run by their addictions to approval, sex, power and control. Unfortunately, few truly healthy individuals want to submit themselves to the necessary abuses inherent to our political races – the verbal abuse both given and received, the huge amounts of money spent, the integrity sacrificed through the concessions, lies and manipulations offered in order to win. Our system of electing our officials is so corrupt that there is little possibility of attracting a person with a strong, personally responsible, loving inner adult self. This is not to say that none of our elected representatives are honest and caring. Some are certainly motivated by positive intentions but, unfortunately, they constitute a minority. There is no training required in personal responsibility to run for office. Our leaders are not required to heal their dysfunctional aspects in order to become honest and trustworthy people. The prerequisites for political positions mostly include having enough money, enough powerful people behind the scenes, being male, and being white. Our political arena is designed to attract wounded people who need approval and power in order to feel worthy and validated. Obviously, such a person, with little or no internally derived sense of self-worth and integrity, is very susceptible to corruption. As the adage says: “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Power corrupts when a person is motivated by his or her desire for power over others, and few people have accomplished enough inner healing to transcend the desire for control over others. A healthy person in office who is more concerned with serving the people than with getting re-elected could accomplish a great deal. Such a person was depicted in the movie Dave. In this film the actual president is in a coma and the White House officials, seeking to conceal the truth from the public so they can maintain control, put a look-alike into the president’s seat. Dave, however, is a man of heart, and rather than allowing himself to be controlled he sets about making necessary changes – cutting money where it is not needed and allocating it into more crucial avenues, like child care and the creation of jobs. He even takes responsibility for the corruption of the actual president and gracefully “dies” as the actual president is dying so the vice-president, a man of great integrity who was maligned by the power structure, could take over in his rightful place. The movie is, of course, a fantasy. Sadly, we would never elect a man of such integrity – a straightforward, honest, caring, and financially middle-class man like Dave. Our election process does not allow for this. Revamping our election process would give people like Dave an opportunity to run for office. We desperately need people who care more for the common good than for their own popularity. We need brilliant, creative, honest and caring people to lead our country, but this will never happen with our present election system. We have incredible talent in this great country of ours, talent that could eliminate hunger and homelessness, and heal the internal wounds that create health problems, drug abuse, racism, violence and crime. But this talent is rarely tapped because running our country has been based on the earthly values of greed and power over others rather than the spiritual values of honesty, compassion and caring. Unfortunately, neither our government nor most big businesses are based on the spiritual principles of compassion and caring about the common good. I have no doubt that if our government was based on spiritual principles we would not have the hunger, homelessness, crime, health problems, and drug abuse that are endemic to our modern society.

Politics, Is it Like Any Other Job?

I am a politician, is it respectful or stressful, is it rewarding or strenuous, is it happiness or corruption, I am confused. The other day I was looking into the possibilities of a good career prospective. And guess which option I stumbled upon. POLITICS! And as I googled the pros and cons of this career option, something struck me. While perceived as bad, illegal, dark, dirty, joining the political system is a lifelong commitment- (Considering the fact that the most senior members never retire ever), this is a life. Someone who is willing to be in the limelight for any reason, someone who doesn’t care what others think of, someone who is sure of success, someone who is daring and willing to fight at any cost is a politician. The Pros are far too many- Money, power, responsibility, publicity come in many forms. With the right amount of exposure and good work, people will notice and appreciate you. Be aware this positive appreciation is always being followed by evil opposition parties. Being never a 9-5 standard job, commitment towards your duties is more a priority. Even if you fail to brush your teeth in the morning, you need to decide your next move or be ready for your party meeting. Election seasons/ news clips/ or any scandalous times are the most stressful. Being fluent in many languages, authoritative spirit and a friendly nature are sometimes too much in demand that you may choose to live in another’s shoes. While young Indian political leaders are never encouraged, it helps to have a family political backing. All in all, it’s just like any other job, with a few exceptions of time and amount of work. Any number of holidays can be taken provided you do your job well. The job is well paying too, but can result in illegal ventures, and greed naturally steps in. While the satisfaction of a job well done can be imagined as in any job, it’s quite an effort to step in honesty within this system. A good person is either eliminated or made to join the evil, and good triumphs evil happy ending is a rare scenario. While the system is changing, students are interested in the political happenings in the country; many are coming out of their shell and voicing their opinions. Student organisations are now braver and demand a change. Rising corruption, rape cases, immorality and evil doings in the country are now open to the public. The young Indian politicians want a change and are doing their bit to water the fires down. Let’s encourage our children, grandchildren, friends, cousins, and the next door neighbour who fights daily to burn alive the Indian oil of honesty and respect. While films, theatres are a good way to spread awareness to students, schools should do their bit to encourage people for their greater good. One of the great leaders on Maharashtra, Shree Prashant Thakur. Shree Prashant Thakur, MLA Panvel has always been encouraging youth. Prashant Thakur, MLA Panvel, have always been on front for emerging young political leaders from the Congress who is all set to make a difference with youth power. The youth taking keen interest in the politics is what our country needs at this time. With large youth population, our country can soar to heights and become the super power of the world in all spheres. The world largest youth populated country is all set to go to polls this 2014. It’s only before time when the results of the poll will declare if the future of Indian political system depends on young political leaders.

When Politics Come In Handy

Many people in modern society are very politically motivated. They belong to a political group and as a result have strong opinions about most current events and topical issues, not surprisingly most of which are usually shared by all the other people who belong to the same group. Sometimes it’s as though they have to check with the group to find out what they actually think about something. Does that seem sad to you? Me too. However there are times when being politically slanted can come in handy. It isn’t all just sounding like a clone produced by an idealistic cult. Sometimes those of us who actually think about things before responding have a disadvantage. This seems counter-intuitive to us normal people who don’t run every single thing everybody says through a political filter. I mean, we actually listen to people and don’t suspect a hidden agenda when the person behind the counter at Denny’s asks us for our order. We think that getting into an argument with the waitress at the point because she didn’t address global warming is a bit nuts. But we are a bit short-sighted, and don’t understand how being a political nut can actually be a benefit in many situations. For example, let’s say you find yourself in a group of starving people that are waiting for food to be distributed by some government authority. Now let’s say that you are really against the killing of certain sea mammals. OK, so they announce on the loudspeaker that the expected food shipment didn’t come today but a small group of natives managed to club one of these mammals to death and it has been grilled up medium-rare. However there is only enough for about 60% of the people. Because you are so appalled at the whole notion, you know not to bother stampeding with most of the other starving people towards the front. OK, lets go with a more realistic example. Let’s say a scientist stops by your work and wants to demonstrate a new power source which uses human anger as it’s fuel. None of your co-workers care much about politics and thus are pretty easy going people. When the scientist tries to demonstrate the product, there is no fuel at hand for it. So your boss makes a slanted statement in support of the opposite political party as you, and now you are the one who gets to fuel the new energy source. All right, all right, here is an even more realistic example. A co-worker accidentally states that she thinks Americans should support whoever happens to be President regardless of which party you belong to. Now you can finally put that person in their place and let them have it. Justice will at least temporarily be done, and no doubt you will gain the respect of everyone in your office. Basically whenever unwarranted anger is needed, or lashing out at people who don’t deserve it will save the day, your political affiliations will be a needed and much appreciated resource. Don’t bother waiting around for thanks. Just be happy that you are helping to save the world a little bit at a time.

Flyers And Politics

The best part of flyer printing is that it is the easiest and the cheapest way of spreading your political message across to the masses, on a piece of paper. By distributing flyers people can read your messages at their leisure. This makes your appeal simple and free from any confrontation. You can reach the masses by pasting your flyers on billboards, or by distributing them, or by mailing the flyers. Though many countries have banned the pasting of flyers, there are still many countries where pasting of flyers is prevalent. There are various sizes of flyers available, such as A4, A5, DL and Credit Card or CC flyers. You can choose the flyer based on the requirement of your party, and the message that you intend to convey. Flyers are useful in sending the right message and information about the party to the masses. Nobody knows the exact time when flyers came into existence. There have been instances in 12th century when flyers were used resistance groups and parties to send messages to the people. The main intention of these groups and parties was to gather as many people as possible for their cause. This was hugely successful, as it was cheap and had a wide reach. Today, with the arrival of desktop publishing, the use of flyers has gained prominence. Desktop publishing has not only made flyer publishing quicker but also cheaper.

Make sure the flyers have your party symbol, as this will help people identify your party at the time of voting. Flyer printing is a useful and important tool that most political parties use for campaigning and protests. So it is important that you use this age-old tool effectively and efficiently.

Don’t Play Around With Politics

Politics is a dirty thing no matter how noble intentions are. If you are a considerate citizen you will find here a lot of things that may interest you. If you are new in politics, this article is twice much the better for read. After a hard working day we come home, ready to drop from fatigue, and fall hopelessly on your sofa in front of the TV. Mechanically you take the remote controller and check your nine hundred channels for news or something interesting to lift you up. On your favorite channel there is a news sequence and a good-looking woman explains the current situation. There is a strike somewhere in your neighborhood; you could hardly drive through the crowd. They want a wages raise or more suitable conditions or something else. Though your problems have to be the top priority for you, you still think about what is going on in your community. A crowd on the screen disappears and you see a clean-shaved face of some spokesman or politician commenting on the situation. His words are very considerate, carefully chosen and pleasant to hear, though his explanation of the problem is quite contradictory. Against your will you become involved in what he says, you almost believe him and ready to think of those on the streets as idiots, but another picture appears. Angry police tries to make people leave the street. Not as pleasant as the face of a spokesman. You turn the TV off and go to the kitchen to have a break and get your thoughts together. You just had a lesson of politics and obviously its ways are not to your taste. Now we are quite satisfied with our lives and don’t think about anything else but our profit. Politics or dirty games, if it doesn’t harm you, why should be concerned? We peacefully sit in our rooms, order term paper and play with our children. But this is until elections come about. Then you forget about your custom term paper and go into the anxiety of what is going on. Your head almost explodes because of the amount of information. Every day you see debates and read interesting articles in different sources. You imagine the fortune that was spent on all of this and its meaning makes you forget about your duty in front of your country. As a concerned citizen you care about the leaders and political parties within power in your country. And you behave like a concerned citizen: read articles and brochures, study candidates’ biography and contributions, listen to their plans of campaigns and think: who will be the best. The truth is, none of them will meet your requirements, for not everything you hear is truth. Power is a strong drug to get addicted to. This can probably be the most truthful statement that you hear during elections. To get power a person is ready to do almost anything to get it. Dirty games and black PR is a common thing. Blackmailing, cheating, overuse of the law happens on every step of the political career ladder. No one knows about dirty facts of one’s life until elections come. Once a politician comes out into a light, his voters can get to know everything about him, including the size of his bedroom. But again this is quite usual. And God prevent you from messing with one of the famous names. You won’t be able to look around when you’ll be left without property, family and hope for the better future. No matter how democratic elections are, you still can be sure that dirty games are involved. If you are still faithful to your leader that is very good, but sooner or later you’ll stop believing in nobility of his/her intentions and if after a series of tries to label your leader you still believe him, you must be a real patriot.
