Could there be change?

So I am not a fan of politics or honestly leadership. I feel that leadership is a necessary evil, emphasis on evil. I think Mark Twain had it right when he said “politicians are like diapers they need to be changed often and for the same reason”. My only complaint about Mark Twain’s quote is that, I would have it read “Leaders are like diapers they need to be changed often and for the same reason.” A good leader is one who makes himself not needed.

Because of my disdain for leaders and especially politicians I usually steer away from the talking head shows where pundits get on TV and argue for one side or the other about some fringe issue that doesn’t really matter. So yeah basically I do not watch cable TV. But because of the economic downturn the industrialized world has taken citizens of said world are looking to the leadership for answers. While I disagree with looking to the leaders for answers this action has made all news programs dedicate part of the broadcast to politics and the actions of political parties.

Here in the United States of America, there arephoto14 primarily two political parties one is the Democratic party and the other is the Republican party. Last presidential election the Republican party lost the vote for the Executive position in the United States Government. Every four years there is a new vote for executive leadership. On the news there are now stories about how the Republican party is looking at its core values and trying to make some changes so that they may regain control of the executive branch.

The idea is to strip away all the issues that really shouldn’t matter. I am skeptical of this happening, mostly because, I think both parties only exist because of the furor they generate in people over issues that really shouldn’t matter. However if a political party were to strip away all the issues that don’t matter and make themselves not necessary I may become one of the sycophants at a political rally. Well if the party was to strip away all issues that shouldn’t matter one may ask. Would there be a need for a rally at all?

So I would love to see the political parties get smaller and less powerful and the people be free and this could happen but only if there is real change.

peace
