What Are We Looking for?
It’s not too complicated. We know what we want, we know what we need. The people who have been elected and are in office know what the voters want, they just don’t believe the voters know what’s good for them.
We all want smaller government, and we want lower taxes, we want our elected representatives to look out for our best interests. We want our representatives to represent us and not the party leaders who have an agenda or owe allegiance to other party leaders or other special interests. After your voters vote you into office you owe your loyalty to your voters.
After you determine that your voters don’t mind paying more taxes, or don’t mind spending money that the government doesn’t have, or don’t mind building an airport in a part of another state that doesn’t need an airport, then go ahead and vote to spend that money. You’re sure your voters don’t care then it’s OK for you to act irresponsibly in their name. Every time you vote you’re voting in their name. Make sure your voters don’t mind when you act that way. Voters don’t like to be abused. Voters know how to get even. We vote and we vote on a regular basis, and we KNOW what we want out of an elected representative.
The voters who elected you should have some input in what you vote for and what you vote against. One thing we don’t want is for anyone to vote for any legislation that requires 2900 pages to detail some but not all of the legislation. There isn’t any excuse that could justify voting for anything that complex for any reason.
If you should determine that you as an elected representative of your community you are spending more time at fund raisers and political events than you’re spending interacting with your voters, then you’re not representing your voters very well. It doesn’t take much money to campaign by telling the truth and talking with your voters. It only takes a lot of money to run a campaign when you have to reinvent yourself and to pound home to your voters why you did what you did against their wishes.
Running on your resume and your standing on your community and highlighting your accomplishments doesn’t take a lot of money to run on. You need money to enhance the truth or maybe even remake history in your favor.
Stand in front of your voters and tell the truth. Use short sentences and answer yes or no as often as possible. Say what you believe, mean what you say, promise to serve as an honest and reliable public servant and not as a politician. This is an opportunity at public service, not a long term marriage. After 2 terms, no matter how well you served us, you need to go and give someone else a chance at public service, it’s a privilege that shouldn’t be wasted on a parasite.
