What Will It Take To Change Our Political Course?
Profound changes in our elected officials.
Let’s replace every person in the Congress and Senate the next election cycle and see if it changes attitudes and work ethic. If it doesn’t, we should do the same thing the next cycle and keep doing it until our message is heard.
I know, the prospect of voting out every federal politician for up to two voting cycles sounds crazy! But if that’s what it takes to get people to do their job then I say it’s worth a try.
Let’s take a look at 5 characteristics that an elected official and any employee should have in common:
- Hard Working
- Able to get along with others
All too often the expectation of a politician to excel in all of these characteristics would be low. Just because “thats the way it is”. However, when your working for a company these same characterisic are expected and demanded. Who would ever think of hiring people with an expectation that they would be insufficient in any of these traits.
So why elect someone and expect less. Worse yet, why re-elect them?
You have probably heard the definition of insanity: Insanity is doing the same thing but expecting different results.
The insanity can change with your actions. Get involved, contact your elected representatives and let them know what you expect. And Vote!
