Politically, do we as a country and society deserve better, or do we get what we deserve?
The idea behind "get what we deserve" being that we the voters piss and moan all the time about our government, and we have the power to change it, yet we refuse to throw the bums out and keep re-electing the same people we complain about.
If we deserve better, please specify *why*.
Note: For discussion purposes, collective "we", as a society. Not any one of us individually.
