Wouldn't It Be Best If Elected Officials Exhibited JUDGMENT?

  • By
Have you ever wondered why, it appears, most Americans believe, they are being poorly represented and served, and what appears to be common sense, is rarely the way, elected officials proceed, and perform? How else can one explain and/ or understand, why the so - called Dreamers are being under - served, by President Trump's approach to DACA, event though, the vast majority of Americans, have stated, they oppose that approach, and support these individuals? How might anyone understand, why the Republican party continues to pursue their repeal - and - replace approach to health care/ insurance, rather than tweaking the existing law, and improving it, in the best interests of those, they represent? With this in mind, this article will attempt to briefly discuss and examine, using the mnemonic approach, why, it would be best, if elected officials, exhibited relevant JUDGMENT.
1. Just; justified: How can anyone be certain, their approach is a just, relevant one, which helps others? Are their actions, justified, and justifiable, serving others, rather than their own personal agenda, and/ or self - interest?
2. Useful: Making lots of meaningless promises, or using empty rhetoric, achieves very little, which helps and/ or serves others! Don't we need, and deserve public officials, with useful, relevant ideas, and solutions?
3. Delve deeply; deliver: Rather than seeking popular, and/ or simplistic approaches, etc, wouldn't we be, better served and represented, if they proceeded to consistently, delve deeply, and over - deliver, rather than make empty promises, and populist statements?
4. Generate goodwill: The focus should be on generating goodwill, and unifying, for the common good, rather than seeking popularity, with core followers and supporters! Donald Trump used vitriol, rhetoric, and promises, to get elected, even though, doing so, created an adversarial, polarizing environment, which pitted one faction, against another. Is that really, what best serves our nation and citizens?
5. Motivational: Wouldn't it be wonderful, if our leaders, were motivational and motivating, seeking the best from all of us, for the common good, rather than the us versus them approach? Obviously, we rarely witness this, perhaps because it makes too much, common sense!
6. Empathy; excellence: Doesn't it seem, when the President, states he will sign a specific bill, if it comes across his desk, without knowing the specifics, he is accepting winning as more important than quality? Don't we deserve individuals who proceed, consistently, with genuine empathy, and strive for excellence?
7. Needs: We should examine, if approaches prioritized needs, concerns, relevance and sustainability, rather than selfishness, and/ or popularity!
8. Tried - and - true; truthful; timely: There's no reason to reinvent the wheel, when there are tried - and - true, approaches. One should make changes, but only, when they are, for the better! Don't sacrifice truthfulness, for the sake of expedience! There's no place for procrastination, when well - considered, timely action, is, almost always, the best course of action!
We need and deserve public officials, who possess the consistent persistence, and JUDGMENT, to make changes, for the better! Why, then, do we continue to see, so little common sense?
