Expect more from your politicians

Posted: Wednesday, August 18, 2010

"Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigues of supporting it."

-- Thomas Paine

Do you feel politicians don't really listen? Do you feel politicians bully constituents into letting government set the rules for pursuit of happiness? Do you feel that politicians acquire the public's trust so their "best judgments" can replace constitution driven Rule of Law?

Such feelings reveal the pitiful American tragedy that too many politicians practice elected aristocracy -- not true representative government. Consider these measures:

* Make your political candidate lead you, not rule you.

* Make your political candidate govern his constituents as mentally capable human beings rather than as selfish animals to be protected, appeased or gratified.

* Make your political candidate free himself from the mind-control of lobbyists and elite experts -- by insisting he organize his constituents to function as his living computer for fact review.

These constitute costs to remedy failing government. Are you willing to pay?
