Good and Bad Leaders

From the beginning of time there have been good and bad leaders in each and every country. There are leaders who concern themselves with the well being of all its fellow citizens and they don’t worship money because they find ways to share it with those most in need first. They straddle the fence but they lean more towards the right than towards the wrong and find themselves becoming ever so strong. Universal Health will keep all its fellow citizens healthy because without it, as disturbing as this may sound, plagues can be wide spread; a cough here a sneeze there, the question is who really cares. Will it be you, me or we? There are those who convince others to follow them with empty promises of “See what I’m doing I’m putting more money in your hands, you the people who are tired and sick of lack. I’m creating more JOBS and more security, just follow me!” Follow you? The one who is undermining its citizens by proposing to get rid of The Environmental Protection Agency and if you succeed than that’s the beginning of living in a lawless land, that would be naivety. Would a good leader put its citizens at risk just to bring in oil and mining companies that violate corporate ethics? Being Americans we all may feel a sense of privilege because our country imports and exports an abundance of goods and we all want our “Goods and Plenty”. And our barometer of enough, have been ignored with more and more stuff. “It’s the American Way” many will say. But in America we have the “Haves” and the “Have Nots” Therefore the “Haves” may feel that they stand to lose a lot if they stand up for the “Have Nots” “Oh such a hard decision to make” Not really, it will be a bigger mistake when the “Have Nots’’ realize that their condition all the time was fake. We all eat, sleep, dress and rest and look our best. Some travel by foot some travel by plane but they all travel just the same. So we seldom examine the truth because the lie is more appealing and it agrees with our greed. My Leader promised me that He would supply all my needs. Food, shelter, clothes, understanding, joy, gladness, and prosperity And he’s never disappointed me.
