Is there a politician in the house?

My back hurts. Quick, call me a politician.

When it comes to our health, it seems that society has made the decision to believe politicians rather than doctors and nurses. I find it interesting because just a few weeks ago we were hailing doctors and nurses as heroes.

The interesting thing is that Doctors and Nurses get paid less when we are feeling well. In fact, the healthier we are the less likely we are to need their services. In that regard, their success leads to their own demise. Yet they continue to strive for perfection.

Politicians on the other hand require our dependency. The more we are dependent on them, the greater power they wield over society as a whole. But unlike doctors they don’t strive for perfection, they strive for power.

So why then do we believe that the doctors and nurses all have a self-supporting agenda? Why would we believe that a politician has our best interest at heart? Is it because the politician says what we want to hear, while the doctor makes us feel uncomfortable?

I am reminded of the lyrics from the Simon & Garfunkel song The Boxer. “a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest.”

I am sure that my back does not really hurt. The pain that I am feeling is simply a figment of my imagination. How do I know? Because my politician told me so.

I've rarely believed politicians. Every once in a while one might come along that I will believe but it's rare. 

I usually believe doctors, but do my own backup research anyway. What can I say? Trust but verify.

Hi Joseph- there are very few people I trust anymore. Most people have their own agenda and whatever they do is with that agenda in mind.
