Politicians shouldn't get second chances

Posted11/2/2012 4:00 AM

In the business and industrial world, people are hired by companies to do certain required tasks. Should the individual fall short of completing or doing the job properly, he or she is terminated. This doesn't seem to apply when it comes to government employees. Politicians constantly play the hot potato game. "It's the previous administration's fault," "I was outvoted," "No one will listen to me" are the excuses we always hear from them.

Politicians are the taxpayers' employees. Do you think they deserve a second chance? If so, why are they always given more chances than the average person?

When you go to the polls to vote, ask yourself how many second chances you were ever given by an employer?
