Compare if you will these two historical Irish leaders
The top Michael Collins, warrior, statesman, hero
Below Bertie Ahern, corrupt, inept poster boy for the Celtic tiger
If Michal Collins met Bertie today, he would kick him in the bollocks and tread on his throat!
I am fed up with being represented and ruled by a bunch of fools whose only qualification is to have won a popularity contest. Would we let the winners of X factor decide how our respective country is run? I think not
Democracy, each person having a say in who holds and exercises power is not working. It is producing politicians that are afraid to have a point of view in case it makes them unpopular, and produces policies that are designed to win the next election, not run the state in a professional manner.
Potentially great leaders are lost due to their fondness for being spanked by fat women (on their own time), whilst big business buys up the insipid left overs, the scum that rises to the surface!
So what is the solution? Well this is my idea. If you like it as much as I do, vote for me to be World President and Benign Dictator of the Solar SystemQuote:
It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried. Winston Churchill
Our representatives are randomly selected from the electoral register. This is done for juries, who can in some cases decide maters of life and death, so why not for states persons?
Not only will we save the cost of elections every four years, but the people who represent and rule us will be of us. They will know what it is like to be a normal person, not a member of some ponsey ruling elite. Pay them well, and after four/five years rotate them, thus reducing the risk of corruption.
Power to the People!
