Why can't politicians be like SFF authors?

L. E. Modesitt, jr. wrote a very interesting blog entry.

And since the man has been on both sides of the fence, he knows what he's talking about. Read it here.

Needless to say, if all politicians were held to the same standards as SFF writers, the worls would be a much different -- and better -- place!;-)

Are you on the left or right, Pat?

I'm on the Right.

Yes, living in a far-Left socialist province is not easy!;-)

Politicians can't be like SFF authors because they would never get elected. You have to tell me what I want to hear or I won't vote for you.
The reason I have always loved sci fi is political commentary and thought can be couched behind other worlds, alternate universes and alternate histories and/or the future.

I cant understand people who still actually believe in the political parties representing each ideology. They are liars and opportunist to the core each and every one, even if not at the start.

In any case I have been following L.E.'s blogs for a while and he always has something relevant or informed to say(almost as good as you pat ;)
