The peer pressure among kids is nothing compared to the peer pressure among politicians.
Good policy is a result of mature leaders reaching across the divide to devise policy that benefits the whole, not enrich the few. The reason why we now find ourselves upside down in this country is because politicians now govern according to peer pressure rather than guided by good policy-making.
A new generation is not the end all be all because most of them it seems are coming into office with axes to grind or chips on their shoulders with something to prove, though they have proven very little.
Politicians are only concerned about the next election. Public servants are concerned about the next generation.
Good policy is a result of mature leaders reaching across the divide to devise policy that benefits the whole, not enrich the few.
When people who are in office are there to prove a point they will ultimately be proven wrong. But by then, the damage is done and we are left to pick up the pieces left by politicians who concerned themselves with enriching the few, sacrificing the well-being of the many on the altar of self-aggrandizing politics.
Only true leaders with moral fortitude, courage, steel wills and backs, not more politicians influenced by radio talking heads, CNN, FOX or MSNBC or their own sense of importance can lead us out of this present darkness.
