I saw this pic from Occupy Democrats and wanted to expound on it.. and so I did.
It’s interesting to me that people are always trying to save Republicans from themselves. I say let them do their deeds and soon afterward recall, impeach or vote them out. Enough time has been wasted arguing with them and debating policies that have yielded nothing but debt for the American people. Minimum wage, health care, the environment are all issues that everyone should be able to come to some kind of agreement on.
What I’d like to see is someone push legislation that requires officials to live and operate under the same conditions that their least constituents live under. Some like to often quote the Bible. So here’s a quote for you… Matthew 25:40
“And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”
So, to help politicians understand– they should get paid minimum wage, live without health care, and drink and bathe in the waters of Flint, Michigan until they get policies right. They should be stopped on a DAILY basis–frisked, and asked “where you going –boy?” and followed until they get there. Then, snatched from the car and slammed to the ground cause they didn’t do it like somebody with a badge thought it should have been done.
Maybe at some point they will realize, there are real problems people face in America everyday. And something needs to be done about it. But until they do, we as citizens have a responsibility to do things on our own in our local and state government to guide and direct that change. Start contacting your officials and get involved however you can to make this America a better place for everyone.
