Re: Performance based Politics

Hi all,
    "Independent agency"! Independent of what? Independent of
"self-interest"! Huh, are we talking about human beings here? I think we
should remember that human beings are dependent on their "self-interest"
after all. I am sure members of this "Independent Agency" will have to be
paid. Who will decide their salary? What do you mean, obviously, based on
performance! And who will decide their "performance"? Ofcourse, another
"independent agency". Huh, sounds interesting to me. If we could find
"independent" men and women so easily there won't be problems to be solved
in the first place.
    You know what, if anybody can determine how well the politicians have
"performed" in serving people, then it is people themselves. Isn't it
logical? Just think about it. Who else can determine if people's interest
have been served by politicians? Maybe, God! Catch him before he runs.
Because he will be afraid of such a gigantic task!
I don't mean to insult anybody, but it is high time that we stop thinking
about such childish but very well meaning proposal to reform the politics.
Regards,
Ashish
