Leaders, Who needs ’em?


Why do I need a leader? They just get in the way, I don’t need anyone telling me what to do, or leading me. I am the master of my own universe; I decide what I do, when I do and how I do it. If I want someone else’s opinion I will ask for it.

I spent 18 years trying to get away from my parents leadership, now I got cops, politicians, God and a boss setting rules, who needs another one. I follow my own rules, I follow my own path, I don’t need you.

I’ve read stories about great leaders like General Custer who LEAD his troops to a slaughter, and I have read in the Bible where it says in Luke chapter 22, verse 26: “…Let the greatest among you become the youngest and the leader as the one who serves, “ and didn’t Lot let his wife get turned into a pillar of salt? As I look around the world, it is full of

what I would call bad leaders, the late Kim Jong-Il, Omar Al-Bashir of the Sudan just to name a few, heck there are so many Parade magazine publishes a top ten list of worst dictators every year. I don’t see a top ten list of best leaders published anywhere. Here we are in the US just days away from the dreaded “fiscal cliff”, and we all wonder if there will be social security when we retire, do WE even have good leaders?

Are we sure we would not be better off on our own? Without government, without religion, what could really happen? Wouldn’ we just continue to work and provide for our families, wouldn’t we continue to see our friends and enjoy our holidays?

I think we would be fine, all for themselves is what I say. Do what you need to do, mind your own business and take care of yourself. Let doctors and storekeepers charge whatever they want, let individuals handle disputes themselves, what is the worst thing that could happen?

I am a Christian, a Husband and a Father, in that order. Leadership is important to me, because I see too many outside influences acting on the lives of my children, and I need support to make sure I am the most dominant influence. I appreciate your feedback and enjoy reading your input. Thanks in advance for being part of this endeavor.
