Toyed like puppets on a string.


There is nothing worse than coming across a news item which isn’t going to make your day, is there? And when you hear it you’re not exactly jumping out of your skin with excitement, because you know you can’t do anything about it right now, and that you don’t have the power to change it because it is out of your control, right now.

Which leads me to ask;  Why is it that some people have more control than others?

Privilege is the word.

The dictionary defines privilege as; a right, immunity, or benefit enjoyed only by a person beyond the advantages of most; in this case, I’m talking about politicians!

Politicians either run their agendas based on what they believe people want vs what they believe people should or should not have.  They determine what is best for us because we ‘supposedly’ voted for them to work toward our best interest.

Instead, more often than not, voices are ignored and what people ‘really’ want is being replaced by what the government of the day really wants. This can result in…

Adults telling other adults what is best for them.  Can you believe it?

When we march in protest we do it because we’re angry with the government’s agenda and because we feel toyed like puppets on a string, and we do it because we want politicians to know that our vote counts, and we voted for them because we believed in them, and to show them that our votes will not favour them next time.

They should be scared.  They should serve in our best interest and not toward our detriment.

This is not suggesting that I voted for the government of the day.

That is all.
