What makes a leader? A leader takes responsibility and doesn’t blame others. A leader is someone who others willingly follow because they have established trust. A leader acts in the best interests of others, there’s that trust thing again. A leader doesn’t force others to do something against their will.
Being a leader is not easily attainable; everyone is not qualified to be a leader. Politicians are not always qualified to lead; sometimes they get elected simply because they are great campaigners.
The 2009 election that put Mr Obama and the left-winged Congressional Democrats into office was simply an anti-Bush election. It was not an election of support for Mr Obama or the left-winged Congressional members.
The 2009 election was an election that was all about puff and fluff; the better campaigners got elected not the better leaders. The 2009 election was an election based on emotion. The Democrats in Congress used our emotions against us. Our emotions elected non-qualified leaders to Washington DC.
Leaders & Non-Qualified Leaders
Elitists do not make qualified leaders because they usually cannot relate to the commoners. The American people would be the commoners. Mr Obama and his Obama administration is comprised of elitists. Obama’s administration is full of puff and fluff who can’t relate to us.
The Washington DC elitists in power since 2009 haven’t really accomplished much. They are extremely intellectual and their speeches and rhetoric can be very convincing. But what have they done to move America forward? The Washington DC elitists have pushed America more backwards than forwards.
The American commoners are made up of entrepreneurs, strivers, doers, builders and achievers. Us commoners are the back bone of America. We keep America going….we are the true leaders.
We need to fire this group of non-qualified leaders. We did toss a lot of them out after last Novembers election; but there is still some work to do because there are more of these non-qualified leaders in office.
Learned Our Lesson?
So what have Americans learned? Have we learned our lesson about not voting on emotions? Have we learned to vote on the qualifications of the candidate and not vote on their rhetoric? Have we learned that we have the power to make changes in Washington DC? Have we learned that our vote is our voice?
Can we change who we have in Congress? In some states, the voters have an election coming up this year for their Congressional members, so they can make a change. And when they make their change, we hope they base it on qualifications not rhetoric or emotion.
