Mr. Eastwood, You Made My Day

English: Clint Eastwood at the 2008 Cannes Fil...

“I would just like to say something, ladies and gentlemen.
Something that I think is very important. It is that, you, we
We own this country.
We — we own it. It is not you owning it, and not
politicians owning it. Politicians are employees of ours.
And — so — they are just going to come around and beg
for votes every few years. It is the same old deal. But I just
think it is important that you realize , that you’re the best in
the world. Whether you are a Democrat or Republican or whether
you’re libertarian or whatever, you are the best. And we should
not ever forget that. And when somebody does not do the job, we
got to let them go.”

Quote by Clint Eastwood at the Republican National Convention, Aug 30, 2012 (Emphasis mine)

This is something that all of those who are elected to an office, from the school boards, to the city councils, to the state legislatures, to the White House need to be reminded of.  You work for us, we the people.  We vote you in or out of office. We pay your salary.  You are beholden to us.  Not the other way around.  Thank you Mr. Eastwood for throwing that out on a national stage.
