More Politics

The political race seems to be slowing down. The candidates are watering down their beliefs and feelings in order to bring people closer, not to push them further away. They have made many missteps and have paid dearly for their errors.

Each mistake they make costs them in support and money. Their financial backers may be put off by some of their stronger statements as well. They lose points and gain points daily.

Truly, at this stage, they feel as if they are living in a glass house. Even off-handed remarks influence the electorate. One day they are leading, the next day they are falling behind.

It is as if the candidates are playing an end-stage game of Twister. They are hopelessly entangled on their own and then we add the other candidates.

They practice over and over what should be said and cautioned over and over what shouldn’t be said. They are well-rehearsed. The successful candidate is certainly the one who may be trained most efficiently. The best one at following the rules will suffer fewer missteps.

Have you noticed that the best candidate is the one who accepts direction more easily and is able to retain the lessons taught to them by handlers all throughout the day? If you have difficulty following direction, you will not do well in the political arena.

What about the smaller offices up for re-election? Have you seen a candidate that does not tolerate the pressure to be non-offensive? They usually make a statement about the scrutiny of the political arena and then drop out of the race. Their egos do not respond well to being reigned in. Being corrected is intolerable.

There are also politicians who aren’t able to stand up to the personal scrutiny of the press. Their lives have been more colorful than the candidate who has been married to the same woman and apparently resisted the urge to cheat.

Everything comes into play during an election! Who could stand up to this barrage of criticism? Do we realize how WE make it nearly impossible to elect good leaders? Is it any wonder that there are fewer and fewer candidates when it finally gets to be election time? Or, is this how we want it to be? Survival of the fittest is actually survival of the image makeover.

Perhaps with this New Age of 2012, things will begin to change. Maybe the energy turmoil will help us to  narrow our focus upon what makes a good political leader and what is the best option to elect our future leaders? Maybe.

It is possible to focus the reform movements on the election process. It may actually be very successful in changing our political direction. If our focus on money reform and banking reform now focuses on politics, we may take the next 4 years to improve the process. That would be an enlightened plan!

Doesn’t it make sense for us to reform our political system so we may care for our selves, children, elders, families and homes? We may also focus on the environment, energy alternatives, healthcare and Social Security. If we elect the best leader then these humanitarian goals would be easier to address and attain.

Add your positive and enlightened energy into the political race. Make the bast decision about who gets elected so that we may see our culture grow and prosper. We have the responsibility to make the needed changes for the next generation and the one after that.

There are so many different floods of energy coming this year. We have used some of it to better our own lives, now we may make improvements to our entire society. Just as we care for our own young so must we care for all of our young.

Look to the new energy for the strength to do what is positive and good. Make some well-informed decisions and take steps to achieve the goals toward a better society.

Be Present and Be Active,

Evelyn
