Yet another reason I am running for office

Here is an often used quote by the philosopher, Plato. “The price of apathy towards public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.” I have seen evil men (and women) serve in government at all levels. Yes, this includes here in our little town of Selma.

According to Stan Burman, “This is an awesome quote by Plato that is as true today as it was when he was alive. Societies in which there is great apathy towards public affairs are almost invariably ruled by evil people at worst, and by incompetent people at best. The United States is one good example. The level of apathy is astounding despite the all the fiery political rhetoric. The result is that the best of the current politicians are simply incompetent and the worst are thoroughly evil and rotten to the core.” 

There are men (and women) who seek to change that. I am one of them.

This does not have to be axiomatic!

Sadly, this cartoon spoof is often true. I have heard many politicians make a lot of promises. The good news about small towns and Selma, in particular, is that there are only four Council members and one mayor involved, so it makes it easier to get your agenda out there. As with all representative governments, it takes cooperation in order to get the votes. That can be either a good thing or a bad thing. The good news is that bad ideas can be fought strongly as much as good ideas can be supported.
