But they are not. Why?
Oh wait a minute! I get it! It could be any of the following:
a) No moral authority to kick butts and/or demand fingers/heads
b) The superiors are just as inferior (or just as deserving to have their butts kicked, etc.)
c) Buying loyalty from these “birds of the same feather” by not kicking their butts, etc.
d) All of the above
e) None of the above
I know you can choose the correct answer yourself.
But remember this. Sovereignty resides in the people all government authority emanates from them (Section 1, Article II, 1987 Constitution). Hence, we are their ultimate superiors so any fault they make surely comes back to us.
We truly got (and continue to get) the government we deserve.
