Politicians are never our of the picture when it comes to news and current political events. This is because their job is very crucial in achieving a better world. We often think that since politicians include job wherein they are to handle to country’s money, it involves dirty work especially in third world countries where corruption is very rampant. Regardless of how they work, one thing is certain, they have plenty of money and make sure that their belongings reflect their social status. This had been my assumption until recently when I bumped in to a documentary on the internet about the lifestyle of a politician. For the sake of the politician’s privacy, I will not drop the name because what is important is something that proved me wrong upon watching the documentary.
As mentioned earlier, most of us probably have a thinking that politicians are making too much money, especially politicians who are in high position – the ones we see in television. One factor that probably affects that way of thinking is the way politicians present themselves – clothing, the way they speak, stand, walk, and a lot more. In addition to that, we often see them in a black SUV, assuming that it is their car that serves as their service as well. More often that not, they have a driver because they are going to different places every day and driving should not add up as stress or hassle to them. With this, we then assume that they have luxurious lifestyle – grand house and expensive cars.
On the other hand, there may be a lot of politicians who want to live in a life of luxury but there are still some who choose to have simple life. In the documentary that I watched, the house of a certain politician is simple yet it looks very classy because of the interior design, specifically how the walls were painted – colors and details. When the politician was asked who made it. they said that they hired the painters calgary. They offer quality service in affordable rates.
The documentary also features the cars of the politician. Upon watching it, that is only the time when I realized that not all politicians are the same.
