    Michael Craig-san,

    True!

    It makes one wonder why.

    News media doesn't often tell direct lies, but they often create a vastly different picture by omitting certain facts.

    Nobody is going to care about Hashimoto, Ishihara and the Restoration Party anymore... they are politically done. They won't recover.

    Hashimoto's fundamentals were interesting but got lost when he joined up with Ishihara.

    Hashimoto's original ideas were to de-centralize beaucracy power to five to seven states and streamline the process removing the duo organization of central government and local government giving more power to the local government financing the local governments by making consumption tax a local tax like in the US.
