It is the government's job to serve its people
Governments only exist because of the people; people create governments. The government is therefore DEFINITELY OBLIGATED to serve the people. The government should be one with the people, meaning all the ideas of the people match up with the ideas of the government. A government represents the people and serves them. Many governments today are separate from the people and this is not the right way as governments are created due to the people's desires. However, if governments abuse their power and/or ignores the ideas and desires of the people, then it wouldn't be a government that serves its people. In this sense, government leaders should be working in the government completely for the people, not for money; what is the point of having a leader who is not faithful and serve the people? These ideas are of a true democracy, ideas that many 'democratic' politicians and governments either forget or ignore.
