Let’s pass the plate and find a way to defund the politicians who don’t want you to vote … except for them.
A lot of politicians are trying to make it harder for you to vote. Maybe it’s time we civilians tried to make it harder for them to get voted for.
Let me explain something to you. It’s a rare politician who leaves office poorer than he was when he started. Nothing wrong with making a buck. It’s not THAT they do it, but how.
How they do it is by panhandling, which is illegal if you do it on the street but lauded if you do it at fund raising events and by taking it under the table by promising the world and delivering maybe half.
They do it by convincing enough of us that they have our best interests at heart. True, if your interests include working a short week for a good paycheck, early retirement, and lauding it over others.
It’s better than welfare. People who receive welfare sometimes get inspected by outsiders. Office holders don’t have that problem. They inspect each other. Like cops.
They do this by asking each other if they took graft or slept through a rollcall vote or were out on the town with each other’s spouses. That’s the extent of it. After we have to assume they’d be truthful, because they’re members of congress or the state legislature or the school board. A higher calling than you, a dumb wage slave pushing broom at Kmart or running a conglomerate.
OK, so if they’re depending on your vote, why are they trying to stop you from voting? Well, that’s kind of selective. They want you to vote for them, not just anybody. Ballots are secret, so how do they know who you’re voting for?
By assuming. Assuming has to be based on something, right? Maybe your neighborhood. Or your skin color. Or the language you speak at home.
--The temperature hit 115 degrees in Phoenix. Yeah, but it’s a dry heat. Right… and people are drying out along with it.
--Here’s further proof climate change is a myth perpetrated by a liberal cabal of people who hate America. A tropical storm hit Alabama and killed eight kids from a home for abused and neglected children. But that was really heavenly revenge for taking down all those Confederate statues.
