Pols needed, but political dynasties ruin democracy

I am not a politician but I do believe that politicians are a basic foundation of democratic institutions. Without the politicians, government tends to become autocratic. In an autocratic form of government, the citizens are mere subjects, not the “bosses” that President Aquino has publicly dubbed them. In a democratic government like we have today, the citizens regardless of status are guaranteed by the Constitution equal treatment before the law. However, too much politics undermines good governance, such that political dynasties rise, thus destroying democratic principles.
