Blood: Doctors and Soldiers in Politics We have discussed this before and I am happy to revisit it. So, what do former soldiers and medical doctors have in common that makes them to want to be politicians. Blood. Thats it, blood. As we now all know, the field of politics is not for the faint hearted. It is not for people who cannot stand the sight of blood. It is the arena in which you may have to bleed. As a matter of fact, most politicians describe politics as "this game of politics". They know you can win or lose, but really never like to lose. In deed when they lose, like a cat, they tend to have nine lives. They keep coming back. Don't do this, but if you throw a cat out the window from say, the second floor, thinking it dead, you ll see that same cat come around again the next day. How does he do it? He always manages to land on its feet. That's what many good politicians do. Never write them off, they always find a way to come back. Indeed, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, former President of Brazil was known as an eternal candidate because he had run for President three consecutive times before winning in 2002, like a very well known figure in Nigeria. Medical doctors and soldiers like politics. I think its that blood thing. They appear as well prepared as any one for the battle and the bloody nose you can suffer in politics. To them the cost of witnessing blood is low, compared to the average person. So any political gains seem huge to them since the costs of a political bloody nose is so low. So when they come for your vote, tell that doctor and the old soldier that if you want to represent us, be sure that you are ready to take that bloody nose even after you have got into office. Let them tell you that their training makes them the best prepared to fight for you, always. The soldier fights a war not to purposefully kill and see blood, but to secure peace and development. The medical doctor cuts the patient, not so as to watch a patient bleed, but to remove a malady so that the patient can recover and become more productive for society. So folks, as I said, when that medical doctor or that old soldier comes to you asking for your vote, ask him if by his training he is truly ready to stand the sight of blood to raise your level of living. Our hidden economics for you.
