I have been both criticized and flattered with the comment ” You are so naive”
It is true. I want to see the best in others- sometimes I even see it when it is not there.
I look for integrity, honour, an air of dignity, a sense of humour, fun and maybe a dash of elegance in people. I want you to dress up for church and plane rides, I want you to speak your mind and hold your tongue. I want you to be a good person and command respect.
I can’t find a single politician who offers me this. They don’t need to be perfect- in fact we should have real people represent real people and the media should allow for some breathing room- but they need to wear the badge of “leader” with some dignity, hope and goodness.
Politicians are not my leaders. I can’t find one who speaks for me or to me.
I turn to the good people around me for leadership instead. Why can’t some of you run for public office?
When SNL can only copy you directly, verbatim, and have a riotous skit, you know you have some serious work to do. You are the parody in your own life.
