We Do It For The Love

It's a strange beast the 'world of politics' - because at it's very core is the apparent desire to serve the people. Which unfortunately seems to be rapidly overthrown by the ego and the desire for power and status starting right about the time you get enough power to do anything more than vote on whether the local council meeting tea break should be 10 or 15 minutes long...

From there on it seems to be a slippery slope of self-serving, back-scratching decisions that become less about the real people the higher you climb. Because of course, who funds your campaigns and powers the votes that send you each step further up the ladder? It's not the masses that you serve, it's the minority with the money. So bit by bit you serve the people a little less, and bow to the money a little more - before lo and behold, your soul is now owned by corporate monsters who's only agenda is more money and more power for themselves. You're just the puppet to help them get it.

The best politicians are the ones who don't want the power, who don't want the limelight - they just want to make things better and serve their communities. Just a shame then that few of those people will ever rise high enough to make a difference on anything but a local level.

It's a twisted system, but it's the only one we've get I guess.
