Representatives failing their electorate
Where do I begin. Having just recently retired, I have a lot more time to watch the news. As people know that are at home most of the day, the news is on all day on some channels. I’m not going to say what channel I watch because I will immediately be judged as to what political party I am associated with. I think that most people would agree that some of our news channels are very biased in the views that they project.
I think that most people would agree that our elected officials in Washington are out of control. It is really clear to me that they have lost sight of what it takes to govern. I think that everyone would agree that we the people sent them there to legislate on all matters that are of interest to the United States of America.
It is impossible to govern when you shut the government down. Their only job is to govern. In essence, by doing this, they quit their job. What would happen if you were at work and you just stop working. Would your boss approve of this? When they stopped working by shutting the government down, they stopped doing the only one thing that they were sent there to do. Did we stop paying them? Would your boss stop paying you? I think that this only goes to prove that unfortunately they are not in government to do the job that we really sent them there to do. To govern.
I have never served in a political office but I have listened to people who want these jobs when they are campaigning. They will give us a hug amount of what they will do if they are elected. Just try and remember all the things that these elected officials said and the promises they gave to us the voters. My most trusted and best friend in life, my grandfather, always told me — Son, a man is only as good as his word.
