I am really tired of politicians playing politics to get certain groups to vote for them or passing legislation to pander to certain ethnic groups. They are not trying to help us but they want to create a voting block because they gave them something. This is one of the many reasons for the recalls here in Wisconsin. People are just looking out for themselves and not for others. They only care about "promises" made by politicians who believe it or not often lie to the people they serve.
If we are all selfish and not willing to make sacrifices, then we will no longer have a free Republic but we will be a slave in a Democracy for only certain groups of people. Like Booker T. Washington said “Among a large class, there seemed to be a dependence upon the government for every conceivable thing. The members of this class had little ambition to create a position for themselves, but wanted the federal officials to create one for them."
Another great quote from Booker T. Washington “Most leaders spend time trying to get others to think highly of them, when instead they should try to get their people to think more highly of themselves. It’s wonderful when the people believe in their leader. It’s more wonderful when the leader believes in their people! You can’t hold a man down without staying down with him."
