When we can’t trust the people we voted into office, what is a nation do?
Instead of focusing on interests that represent the majority, a few have to taken it upon themselves to remove confidence in favor of a circus act. In turn, this has led to animosity. Egoism is the new King George and the GOP its lackey. Modern leaders cators to the audience of cameras and leaves the human audience in search for something different.
I came across these words trying to figure out what to think and how to feel about everything. Leaders of the distant past understand that respect is needed in democracy. Right now, our leaders have no respect for anything and prefer to showcase egoism instead of altruism.
This world of ours… must avoid becoming a community of dreadful fear and hate, and be, instead, a proud confederation of mutual trust and respect. ~Dwight D. Eisenhower
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty. ~John Adams
