The trouble is, that we are already well beyond the point where a politician with an agenda of their own, is hardly what is needed.
We need politicians who understand that the LAST thing we want as people, is to be told what we need, what we may have, what we may have taken from
us, and how we are going to go about putting these things in motion.
We need politicians who understand that it is their job, to do as they are damned well told. When those who care for the disabled say "you need to
fund every level of care to the tune of thousands of percent better, and be state run, not privately administrated" it is not their job to turn to us
and tell us no, or tell us that only private companies can deal with these issues, but to knuckle down, accept the instruction, and carry it out like
good little slaves to the people, like they always should have.
When we tell them that we do not support, endorse, or desire to be citizens of a nation which engages in proxy war, we will not accept arguments
against that position. We simply expect all spending on that arena to end, our assets in the region to either come home in the event that they are
citizens, or slink back into regular life in which ever nation they happen to be.
When we tell them that we expect our nations overt war resources to only be deployed against:
a) Nation states, and with as little collateral damage as is scientifically possible
b) Only in the event of military action against our shores, not oil works, not agribusinesses, not any other corporate structure we might have control
of, but the actual territory of Great Britain.
Then that is precisely the circumstance that MUST come to pass. There must never be again be a time, where we, the people of this great nation,
should ever have to wonder at the motivations and involvements of our political establishment, their loyalties, their reasoning. Our word, and our
nations defence, should be the ONLY two motivating factors in ANY action we decide to take. If our people see harm done to others, and cry out for
something to be done, then it must, but short of that, the governments every action should be married to an instruction from our people, and not self
motivated in the least.
They must be our mouthpiece, and our right arm, but never our masters, never our leaders. We must lead ourselves, finally, so that when our nation is
under threat from some error, it is ours, not theirs. When our nations war dead return home, we must know that we sent them in OUR good faith, not the
confused and financially motivated reasoning of those who foolishly think themselves our betters.
We must also know, that those who come against us are coming for all of us, rather than the fools whose meddling has set the world in a chaotic
imbalance, has attracted nefarious attention from bogeymen our leaders made to control us with, has made us fearful where we should be prepared to
laugh even in the face of death, like true Britons.
We should all, no matter where we may hail from, all of us, man woman and child, black, white and every other tone of skin, straight, gay, lesbian
and every single non-heteronormative, Christian, Muslim, Jew and every other faith, have a voice that spoken as one drowns all else in the halls of
power, blasts away every cobweb of deceit, smashes down every paper wall, destroys the ears and voices of the monied powers that wrestle us for
control of our nation. We must have control of the nation for the people, by its people, and for that to happen, the political establishement must
become our slaves, not our masters, and this time cannot come soon enough.
