Public Servants? Or Parasites?


Back in the day, before social media and tv hits, and the 24-hour news cycle, you really had to serve to be a 'public servant' or politician. But something changed. Maybe it started with the crossover connection, and the media's fawning of a young Bill Clinton. Or the infatuation and idolatry of Barack Obama? Whenever it was, for some reason politicians are now treated like royalty, or celebrities if they're democrats. So why is that? Why do we put the people that we vote for on a pedestal? And blindly give them our trust, that they somehow know better when it comes to making important decisions? Political analyst Luke Macias told KTRH, "Some of it is their self-proclaimed prophesy, politicians believe in that famous line that if you repeat a lie long enough people will start to believe it." And that would be that they are public servants. But do they really serve us? Or themselves? With six figure incomes, bribes from lobbyists, private jets, and a lot of power, Macias says politicians today are more like rock stars! "Politicians have a sweet gig! You have access to incredible power, if you're a state representative, a congressman, senator, or even a county commissioner, we've seen so many of them use those positions to increase their own wealth and status." But as for doing their job? In Washington, while millions of Americans are still suffering and in desperate need of financial help due to the lockdowns, lawmakers have spent 2021 the same they did from 2017-2020, and that's going after Donald Trump. And then locally here in Texas, there are so many big issues before the state legislature, and yet they've only met for a few days due to Covid concerns. Maybe we need to re-examine, and refocus on who we lift up, and who the real public servants are.
