Born to Rule (from the pedestal).

Politicians are no different to anyone else in the country, except they have been vested, by the people, with the authority to run the nation in accordance with all applicable documentation. They are employed by the people, who (supposedly) consider them to be leaders, to make decisions for the benefit of the country and its citizens, AND to behave in a statesman like manner.

Unfortunately, within our current political world, the number of politicians with these desired qualities has diminished. Very few Pollies behave appropriately. They’re focussed firmly on discrediting any messenger with an adverse message. They put most of their energy into maintaining their own political career. Very little of their time and energy is left to run the country in an appropriate manner.

Many of them seem to think they are better than the average person, up on a pedestal, and as such are entitled to a champagne lifestyle. This possibility could be considered if we had full employment, no homeless, and free education for every child.

Regardless of who is to blame for this situation, there’s only one group who can repair the damage. The politicians.

Hence, we can only pray and live in hope (and vote).

  1. Hear, hear!
    But it’s not just up to the politicians to fix things, it’s up to the people as well, perhaps more so.
