Government is a service


The purpose of government is to serve the people. Thomas Jefferson and Mao Zedong may not agree on much, but they do agree on this.

“The purpose of government is to enable the people of a nation to live in safety and happiness. Government exists for the interests of the governed, not for the governors.”
~ Thomas Jefferson

“We serve the people… If, in the interests of the people, we persist in doing what is right and correct what is wrong, our ranks will surely thrive.
~ Mao Zedong

Government is a service.

And we deserve better.

Think you are so right, and your title sums it up even better... the government is a service and meant to help the people of its constitution. Something that i think has been lost.
