Politicians need to be educated...
Politicians promise change and very rarely deliver. Politicians run the country, yet anybody, even a high school dropout can run for political office. There is no standard. Lawyers must pass the bar exam and we're not talking an alcohol bar. Doctors have approximately 8 years of school, an internship and residency before becoming a full fledged doctor. Politicians need zero education or prior experience, it's usually on the job training.
Would you want a surgeon who was a high school dropout? Would you want a lawyer defending you who was a high school dropout. Do you want a high school dropout as one of your elected Politicians making major life, death and financial decisions for you?
I believe there should be standard educational backgrounds for those running for public office.
Many politicians and wanna be politicians think campaigning is all about posing for photos, hand waving and sign waving. How about some good old fashioned debates allowing people to see how your mind works? I personally don't care how well you can wave, however, I must admit I truly enjoy posing for photos with my favorite politicians as you can see...
There's the famous joke, "How do you know when a politician is lying?" "As soon soon as their lips move." What politician hasn't lied? I cannot think of one. That doesn't mean I dislike every politician. It just means to keep your nose in the wind and eye on the back trail. A phrase I learned while hunting in Alaska.
Great politician is somewhat an oxymoron, like jumbo shrimp, how can a politician be great? There are exceptions especially on the beautiful cosmic Garden Island of Kaua'i.
To my politician friends, you know who you are. This is not about you, it's about the good majority of your fellow politicians that give politicians a bad name. I like to say,"Re-elect nobody unless of course they're a somebody."
I like to tell every potential political candidate I meet that I am voting for them even if I have not made up my mind. I'm not really lying, I am just playing politician with a potential politician.
Enjoy the hand and sign waving competition as free entertainment, for it will soon be over, and make sure to vote for your favorite hand waiver this coming November. I still like the Miss America wave da best!
"Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first."
According to the late George Carlin, The real reason we cannot have the ten commandments in a courthouse:
You cannot post "Thou shall not steal." Thou shall not commit adultery," and "Thou shall not lie"in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians. It creates a hostile work environment."
