American Politics is a great calling. It’s original design was entirely for the service of the people, modeled for us by our founding fathers. As they signed the Declaration of Independence, they were risking their lives. For many of them it was at a great personal cost, the loss of homes, entire fortunes and families. Some were even imprisoned, beaten and killed. American Politics was created to be a noble thing, a high calling, an appeal for leaders who would humbly guide, selflessly sacrifice, and courageously defend. What has happened in this country, that men would use politics to satisfy their lust for power, money and fame? The heartbeat of the American Politician should be first and foremost for the care of those entrusted to them. Every political leader should soberly ask himself “Why am I serving in this capacity?  Is it truly for the people?”
Herein lies great significance – the giving of self for the betterment of one’s country, state and fellow man.
