The Greeks voted the same government in almost uninterruptedly over many decades and still don't understand what went wrong -- and we expect them to get this decision right?
You do know that there are dozens of governing units (cities, counties, states, etc.) here in the US who have done the same, right?
Father, I can't say I do know, but I will tell you I made the same criticism of the people of questionable intellect who returned the Labor party to power for four terms here in New South Wales and then had the audacity to complain about the state of our infrastructure and utilities at the last election.
We who live in democracies do not have the luxury of blaming "the politicians" when things go wrong: especially when we have stubbornly returned the same politicians to power term after term after term, often over decades.
