Interesting statement of a politician.

So true. So many wrongdoings and scandals lately it makes you wonder that Japan is going to be China's Mexico in a few years.

I doubt it, but if so the LDP takes far more of the blame for it from their time in power.

Interesting coming from a Japanese polititian. Maybe he's never read a history book. But then again, the Japanese government changes the history books for students anyway.

How many partties does Japan need? It's no wonder why nothing gets done.

It isn't only this Nation. Actually, as I have so boldly said countless times before, humanity has some huge hurdles directly in front of them, so, many simply turn away and do a 180, some stop and gawk. Most try throwing the blame card around. Interesting how this man could actually be honestly explaining a true scenario and so few are capable of caring about it.

Let's try to find a Nation which isn't, name one.

Yeah I do. It's easier that way. Just like when people have a problem in their life that they can't explain, they come up with 'god' did it.

Actually, he is right. Read a nice free essay on my Kindle about over-population, basically, the 1,000 pound gorilla that no one is really addressing. Now that we are ready to add yet another 1 billion people to the earth that is already using the resources of three planets and with a younger generation ready to out-consume the previous one, well, yeah, we are on the path toward doom. Strangely enough the essayist recommended that there be a lottery to see who can reproduce. Fair, but impractical to say the least, in which we can not even agree on cap and trade, much less who gets to reproduce! But, like where was this dude, (if he is freakin out about the spending or the policies) a year or 5 years ago???? Quite as a mouse. All he is doing is trying to create an opportunity for himself.

He is right but if he got into power would he actually do anything to change the path it is on?

Hatoyama added, "Join me, and we can end this destructive conflict."
