At some point our need to support a party that matches our ideology will be shadowed by the fact that we aren't getting what we are paying for.
The goal of politics is power, not people. It never has been, it never will be. The sooner the junta realizes this, the sooner it will be disillusioned of charismatic leaders and mass movements.
For a democracy to perform best it's people should keep making attempts to break this illusion every few years and ask the most important question - what's in it for me and my family?
Only when everyone is thinking about this, can the collective gain from democracy, else we will only be dictated by the ideas of any party's propaganda.
