When You Are The Leader It’s Always on You

Sam Silverstein Blog

The President of the United States has traditionally been a leader, a leader of our government and a leader of the free world. It is a different time and place now. Several events have happened recently that illustrate that the president has become a title and a position and that he is not a leader.

Is The Brand More Important Than Accountability

Sam Blog

The politicians are fighting for their brand. They are not fighting for the people. They are supposed to be representing the people.

With the release of the audio tape of Donald Trump making lewd and sexually aggressive comments about women, Paul Ryan told his fellow Republicans to do whatever they have to do to protect themselves. Ryan came up short of pulling his support for Trump. So, what does that tell me about Ryan’s accountability? It says he is more concerned with his brand than with being accountable to the people he serves. He serves the people of Wisconsin as their Congressman and he serves the supporters of the Republican party as the Republican leader.
