MY TWO SENSE: MAKING THE CHANGE by JUST ME
MAKING THE CHANGE
LET’S GET THIS UNDER CONTROL
Passing term-limit, legislation or adding an amendment, regarding same, to the Constitution will take care of generational/family political careers and will significantly cut corruption and political wealth-gathering on the backs of taxpayers. Also legislation/amendment to enforce a two-year hiatus between one office term and the next campaign would prevent politicians from speeding up that food chain. The individual who grows dependent on a political career to support himself and his family, as one would if working in any other field, soon becomes fodder for bribery and intimidation. That’s not good for any country, especially a free nation.
Given the opportunity, as well as a misguided, but extremely popular, belief that the end justifies the means, man always empirically proves that his weakness lies strongest in self-aggrandizement which invariably flows over in one holding too much power for too long. This inevitable politician, far removed from electorate reality, is morphed into an ignorant ass, ever hungry for more power, more wealth, and the next “big deal.” He comes to view the public as stupid and easily led around by the nose, and therefore, in need of his egocentric expertise in the ways of our government and what’s best for our country. Once a good-hearted and well-meaning citizen, with the best of intentions to serve the nation, the politician turns into an unrecognizable public servant who has lost sight of service obligations, has lost sight of the original focus, and most egregiously, has lost all desire to make America a better place. His greed and lust for bigger and more of whatever he wants, runs the show, and to hell with everything and everyone else beneath him.
Although, not all politicians are made this way, there are enough to destroy our nation completely, and We, the People, must rise up and support honest men and women who are fighting for us. They need us to do that because at some point, thankless service will end, and tyranny will prevail. Go to those heroes’ blogs, Twitter accounts, and their websites to say “thank you” everyday.
