They’re all the same

Dear Editor,

Re: P.M. told to step down

In a nutshell, democracy can be a system where the people deserve their leaders. Sad for Samoa, but there's some truth in that. 

And then there's Nikita Kruschchev who said "All politicians are the same all over; they promise to build bridges even when there are no rivers." 

They also are all the same once they're in power. 

I hope our politicians are -or will be - different, otherwise this other saying applies "Politicians, like diapers, should be changed often. 

And for the same reason." 

From this next election we should have some philosopher kings/PM's and some statesmen. Let's hope Dr. Salele is one of them.
