Who Do We Want?
The political class has drifted from the path the voters are comfortable with. We’re comfortable with representatives who have lived a life outside of public service and have been successful in that life. We want representatives who feel that public service is a debt they owe to the public at large and not a winning lottery ticket. We want someone who understands that the money they vote to spend comes out of the mouths of our spouses and our children. We want elected officials who understand that we want value for our dollar.
Those in office today are not what we want. They’ve spent too much time in a broken system. They’ve lost sight of who they work for. They let themselves be bullied into voting for things that aren’t good for their constituents. They want to live the life of the privileged class and to have some power. They’re not as humble or selfless as they should be. I don’t think we want them in office. They’re too concerned with what they’ll get out of the office they hold than what they can do to look out for the people who voted for them. Am I being too harsh in my assessment of them? Am I too critical? If I am then they’re creating that image in my mind by their actions and the bills they vote for, and how they answer questions. They lack an honest straightforward quality. I like honest and straightforward. Yes or no works better than a long winded story that avoids giving an answer.
So far the primaries have shown that the voters are tired of the old professional politicians. Many have seen the writing on the wall and have retired. Some ran and lost in their primaries. Some will run and lose in November. The new representatives will be more in tune with what we want. Honorable men and women who respect our hard earned money that the government has confiscated from us. They will reduce spending and lower taxes. They will work hard at reducing government. They will take care of the voters and the makers.
Those of us who make a living should be able to keep more of what we make. We want elected officials to remember that. The takers and the spenders will be far weaker than they are today. Lessons will be learned and in 2012 more spenders and takers will be chased out of office.
The Founding Fathers didn’t envision the type of government we have today. They expected us to be self reliant and independent. They didn’t create a Nanny State to care for our every need. Individuals can care for themselves better than the government can.
The voting public wants men and women we can trust and who respect our hard earned dollars. Robin Hood is an historical figure. He may have robbed from the rich to give to the poor, but that’s not what our Founding Fathers wanted this country to become. Our government robs from those of us who earn anything and give to the general fund to spend in a variety of irresponsible ways, that don’t take care of the common good. What we have now is a government who steals from anyone who earns regardless of rich or poor and then gives away to special interests.
It Must STOP. It will STOP starting this November.
Who do we want in office? We want people who understand this and care about the voters. And we will get it too!!
