Our intentions are meant to be good, then we follow a leader which we should be able to trust. But, the blind leading the blind can lead you to a ditch in which you both will fall into. Good intentions are to be praised but the good Word tells us to never trust a man with your very soul and spirit. This is exactly what we do when we blindly trust Mr. Rushern Baker in the current situation.
Many leaders get to the top by imposing their will on others, even destroying people standing in their way. When they reach the top, they may be paranoid that others are trying to knock them off their pedestal. Sometimes they develop an impostor complex, caused by deep insecurities that they aren’t good enough and may be unmasked.
To prove they aren’t impostors, they drive so hard for perfection that they are incapable of acknowledging their failures. When confronted by them, they convince themselves and others that these problems are neither their fault nor their responsibility. Or they look for scapegoats to blame for their problems. Using their power, charisma, and communications skills, they force people to accept these distortions, causing entire organizations to lose touch with reality.
At this stage leaders are vulnerable to making big mistakes, such as violating the law or putting their organizations’ existence at risk. Their distortions convince them they are doing nothing wrong, or they rationalize that their deviations are acceptable to achieve a greater good.
When leaders such Mr. Rushern Baker in Prince George’s County focus on external gratification instead of inner satisfaction, they lose their grounding. Often they reject the honest critic who speaks truth to power. Instead, they surround themselves with sycophants who tell them what they want to hear. Over time, they are unable to engage in honest dialogue; others learn not to confront them with reality. This is one reason why we are demanding change in leadership in Prince George’s County.
Some Prince George’s County citizens want to glorify Mr. Rushern Baker for messing up the school system and for running a 5k recently and in the past, but we don’t see him talking about corruption, racism and nepotism in local government. The County Executive Rushern Baker can do better than running around and using the school system as his political tool!
In any case, a time has come for the Mr. Rushern Baker to face a reality check whether opposed or unopposed in the June 24, 2014 election. Mr. Rushern Baker and anybody else who might be involved in deep seated corruption affecting the Prince George’s County citizens must go! We have had enough. This must stop!
