    One of the reasons why we are called the third world and themselves the first world, by the Western Countries, is because we are still dependent on their brain power. We are actually much smarter than the West and should start to do things ourselves. That is why properly educated people should run our country.

    Well, I would suggest that we build private hospitals adjacent to prisons. This would save time and money posting officers to guard politicians in custody at hospitals. Also it would encourage more politicians to accept guilt, as it would be obvious the time will be served on a cozy hospital bed.
