What Makes a Good Politician?
Usually people consider politicians good, when they are honest, not corrupt, make improvements for citizen’s quality of life, and help generate money for the community.
Definition “Politicians”: 1 : a person experienced in the art or science of government; especially : one actively engaged in conducting the business of a government 2 a : a person engaged in party politics as a profession b : a person primarily interested in political office for selfish or other narrow usually short-sighted reasons
Principles and Politics :“Government … thought [it] could transform the country through massive national programs, but often the programs did not work. Too often they only made things worse. In our rush to accomplish great deeds quickly, we trampled on sound principles of restraint and endangered the rights of individuals.”…“The Declaration [of Independence] was not a protest against government, but against the excess of government. It prescribed the proper role of government, to secure the rights of individuals.” – Gerald R. Ford
At what point did our elected officials forget the principles that where so important when they first ran for office? What happened to these principles; the sincere service? In many ways it is they who are problem. The bureaucracy they are creating, like the California Department of Fish and Game, feels more like socialism then liberty; more like the tyranny than a constitutional republic!
Governments: “injustice, cruelty, restraint of conscience, oppression, falsity, dishonor, deceit, violation of law and equity?—But look how they have cleaned up the cities and what wonderful roads they have built!” – Johan Huizinga ……..But look how they have cleaned up the water and saved the fish?
Perhaps it’s too late, and we all must give in to the bureaucracy? I think not! As the government tries to diminish our Rights into privileges, which they can then Revoke, we must reform these government agencies. Expose the waste and wrong doings before we can participate with them.
