Government

Governments serve the people and are not served by the people…

It seems that I live in the country with some of the most highly paid politicians…
Even more so than those once considered superpowers…

It makes me wonder if people who go into the public service are in it for the money or because they truly have a vision for the country they serve…

This in turn brings about the question about elected officials in the country…
But that’s another question for another time…

PS: I hope that by saying these remarks, I encourage people to think patriotically about the country rather than slam it…
