Politics is an ugly business. And sometimes, most of the time, it smells.
I don’t know who first said this, but I get the principle. Politicians who stay in office too long become jaded. They become all about staying in office and not about serving the people. It happens with both parties, as well as with independents.
We’ve forgotten the concept of the citizen legislature. I’d like to see us get back to that. But I don’t think we ever will.
I believe this.
365 Things I Believe is a revisioning of a year long web project. I initially launched the blog 365 Things I Believe because I think there are important things I have to say. There are eternal truths that are non-debatable, although I realize they’re not universally accepted.
So for a year I did a daily post of one thing I believe to be an indisputable truth. I’m relaunching here at The Write Side of My Brain and will continue through the next year to re-post (mostly) from the original project.
This time graphics and commentary are included. You can buy today’s print here. And, by the end of a year, if not sooner, you’ll be able to purchase the entire series in ebook format.
