Picking on our Leaders

Everyone picks on the politician...

Does anyone know that these people literally take about at least a half a million to millions of dollars a year pay cut to hold office? Any leader at this level is making a million dollars + a year in any other position that they would hold in the private sector. They would be able to make mistake after mistake just the same as you do in your job, and never have it shown in the papers everyday.

If leaders make mistakes, it's like the world is ending, and we want to crucify them. I wonder if these same leaders were to hold us as citizens accountable for our actions, how would that make us feel? How would you feel about being a terrible parent, absent husband or wife, or have your affairs broadcasted? Hmmmmm...

I especially think it's funny how we expect our leaders like Obama or Harper to turn around the economy after generations of bullshit, that has put us here in the first place? I mean, if someone came by your household and discovered that you were in debt from overspending, how long do you think it would take you to recover from that? And that's just a simple task of running your household, not a country, or a world economy.

So the next time you think about talking shit about an elected leader, why don't you start with someone that you can control, like yourself? -Because it's always easier to blame someone else for your problems, isn't it?
