This is a key fact that way, way too many Americans aren’t jiving with. Elected officials are our employees. They are performing a service for us, just like our dog groomers and our plumbers and our doctors and our lawyers and our barbers and our mechanics. But somehow politicians are the only ones we treat like our Masters, or at least let get away with acting like our Masters.
Look. If they are our employees, and we are their masters, than that would mean that the ultimate responsibility for their deeds lies with us. But most Americans vote for politicians (“hire” them) in order to avoid responsibility, not assume it.
In other words, they want to hire bosses because they are too stupid, lazy, greedy, or frightened to be the bosses themselves.
