The latest US presidential election clearly indicates how much the country’s long time establishment and ruling political elite have lost their connection with many ordinary American people.
For many years, the focus has been given to foreign relations, fighting never-ending wars, and channeling aid to allies without paying or giving much attention towards their own people along with many problems which they faced in their own backyard.
It seems that the majority of the Americans are fed–up with the political drama they have had for many years now and have started choosing a new path by selecting people or individuals who have less or no connection at all with any political establishment or ruling elite.
It’s okay to build up foreign relations, it’s okay to defend our country from attack, it’s even okay to help our friends in need, but in doing so, we must never forget to give attention towards our own peoples’ need like creating job opportunity, improving the infrastructure, ensuring the quality of education, controlling and reducing the cost of living, and others.
The current US election results can be a good lesson for all politicians not to underestimate the peoples’ power, never take any issue lightly, and to engage with ordinary people and understand their problems and needs.
