spain_map_terrain_1Sounds like an possibly workable solution to me. See how this strikes you.

“For over 280 days, the Spanish people have been without an elected government and, as it seems, it is the greatest thing to have happened to the country since it’s four-decades-old democracy began. In the words of language teacher, Félix Pastor, “no government, no thieves.”

“Things continue to function. It is not a shutdown; public employees are still getting paid, garbage is still getting collected, electricity still flows. The biggest difference is that there are no politicians creating new laws to muck it up.

“Without the corruption and power grab, the people of Spain may very well be able to create a new, functioning government based on the use of the internet and direct democracy.

““A lot of people said we would go to hell if we didn’t form a government,” said Ignacio Escolar, the editor of the news website eldiario.es. “But we’re still here.””

Spain is without a national government and the people are loving it

For over 280 days, the Spanish people have been without an elected government and, as it seems, it is the greatest thing to have happened to the country since it’s four-decades-old democracy began.

In the words of language teacher, Félix Pastor, “no government, no thieves.”

Though the leaders warned that the country without a government would fall into chaos, the opposite seems to have happened.  Since officials have stepped out of the way, people are thriving.

“Spain would be just fine if we got rid of most of the politicians and three-fourths of government employees,” local pharmacist, Rafael Navarro, said.

Things continue to function.  It is not a shutdown; public employees are still getting paid, garbage is still getting collected, electricity still flows.  The biggest difference is that there are no politicians creating new laws to muck it up.

If no new government is formed, the 2016 tax laws will become the 2017 tax laws.

The stalemate is a result of  a general election held in 2015.  Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy called for elections, which resulted in the Popular Party taking the most votes, but not a majority.  They ended up with 137 of the 350 seats in Parliament and the deadlock began.

The situation is a result of the two largest political parties, the Popular Party and the Socialist Party, failing to come together to create a new government.

Without the corruption and power grab, the people of Spain may very well be able to create a new, functioning government based on the use of the internet and direct democracy.

“A lot of people said we would go to hell if we didn’t form a government,” said Ignacio Escolar, the editor of the news website eldiario.es. “But we’re still here.”
