Do you agree with this tidbit from a quote by George Carlin: "If you have selfish, ignorant citizens, you're going to get selfish, ignorant leaders."
Leaders usually come from citizens
stupid people, stupid congress
I agree. to many political leaders evolve to become what is popular and keeps them elected and in office vs. holding to any true ideology
Stupid people. Stupid president. Makes sense
I'm not talking about specifics. But generally, people elect along party lines and do not care about the actual issues they stand for.
I LOVED George Carlin!! And yes, I agree. After all, the leaders are chosen from the citizenry.
I did too. I was sad when he died. He didn't pull punches with anything and I respect that.
I was sad too. I really liked his early stuff.
