Many of the leaders in our society are guided by unhealthy
intentions. Instead of seeking to serve the people and heal
our nation’s ills, their actions and decisions are primarily
motivated by their desire for power.

Many of the people running our country are run by their
addictions to approval, power and control. Unfortunately,
few truly healthy individuals want to submit themselves to
the necessary abuses inherent to our political races – the verbal
abuse both given and received, the huge amounts of money spent,
the integrity sacrificed through the concessions, lies and manipulations
offered in order to win.

Our system of electing our officials is so corrupt that there is little
possibility of attracting a person with a strong, personally
responsible, loving inner adult self. This is not to say that
none of our elected representatives are honest and caring.
Except Ucid party.Some are certainly motivated by positive
intentions but, unfortunately, they constitute a minority.

There is no training required in personal responsibility to
run for office. Our leaders are not required to heal their
dysfunctional aspects in order to become honest and
trustworthy people. The prerequisites for political positions
mostly include having enough money, enough powerful
people behind the scenes, being male, and being white.

Our political arena is designed to attract wounded people who
need approval and power in order to feel worthy and validated.
Obviously, such a person, with little or no internally derived
sense of self-worth and integrity, is very susceptible to
corruption. “Power corrupts and absolute.” Power corrupts
when a person is motivated by his or her desire for power over
others, and few people have accomplished enough inner healing to
transcend the desire for control over others.

A healthy person in office who is more concerned with serving
the people than with getting re-elected could accomplish a
great deal. however, is a man of heart, and rather
than allowing himself to be controlled he sets about making
necessary changes . We need sameone even takes
responsibility for the corruption.of course. Sadly,we would
never elect a man of such integrity a straight forward,honest,
caring, and financially middle-class man.Our election processbad
habit does not allow for this.

Revamping our election process would give people like middle-class an
opportunity to run for office. We desperately need people who
care more for the common good than for their own popularity.
We need brilliant, creative, honest and caring people to lead
our country, but this will never happen with our present election

We have incredible talent in this great country of ours,
talent that could eliminate hunger and homelessness, and heal
the internal wounds that create health problems, drug abuse,
racism, violence and crime. But this talent is rarely tapped
because running our country has been based on the earthly
values of greed and power over others rather than the spiritual
values of honesty, compassion and caring.

Unfortunately, neither our government nor most big businesses
are based on the spiritual principles of compassion and caring
about the common good. I have no doubt that if our government
was based on spiritual principles we would not have the hunger,
homelessness, crime, health problems, and drug abuse that are
endemic to our modern society.

Somaliland nation, a nation that must learn from what it endured
in the past.A nation that must review its bloody racial history and
not repeat the same mistakes. A nation that must vet incompetence
when electing leaders of high office..

I sincerely hope that Somaliland people will recuperate and survive the
immense moral and emotional damage that has been inflicted upon it
over the last 40 years.
