Beings I know nothing about how the world of politics works I may be way off, but I figure if we, as the taxpaying voters who pay the salaries of those who are elected, are not happy with the choices we have been given for presidential candidates; couldn’t we nominate someone else to run as well? What could it hurt to put one of US in a position of power? At least I (the Hick Chick) knows what the important issues are to the average joe. I would never act as immature as they do with all of their name calling and drama plus,I would be the first president to insist on receiving a salary that is comparable to the average income earned in the u.s. Why not? I mean the job comes with a house, a car, food and clothing already.
I once read about this man who was employed by a small company that was owned by a group of people. The man assured them that he could make their lives better with just a little more money. The group believed in the man and the promises he made so they each began giving him money. Everyday he came, asking for more money, assuring them that he was working very hard for their needs. He said Trust me, everything i do is all for you.. Eventually the man became quite wealthy (from the $ the people gave him) . Now, the people who hired him were barely making ends meet. They drove cars that barely ran and even rode busses, He drove fancy cars and rode in limo’s . He still asked for money and they still gave it to him. The only vacation the people had known was camping for a weekend at the local lake, He owned several large vacation homes. yet he still took and they still gave. He dined with his family at the finest of restaraunts but the people barely kept food on the table. What kind of a person would do that ? He made promises he never intended to keep, he used their money to gain personal wealth and continued to do so for many years to come. How would you describe this person.? Kind hearted, sincere, honest, loyal, trustworthy??? Or do the words Selfish, liar, greedy, cold, dishonest, a bullshitter, maybe even manipulative come to mind? this person has a title a name that says it all- HE is the politician. He is every member of congress, the white house, the senate, mayors, etc. etc.
Too many people spend so much time Talking about what we should do to *save the planet, *save the whales, *stop animal cruelty, *stop child abuse, *stop illegal immigration, etc., but they never actually Do anything that really makes a difference. They tend to enable the problem as opposed to fixing or ending it.
For example; instead of spending efforts to house all of the millions of abandoned dogs and cats, they should put a five-year ban on breeding. Those who violate this rule would be charged an enormous fine and possibly lose their pets.
Instead of trying to find new sources for fuel we should stop letting our members of congress and other wealthy people waste the fuel we have flying around on their private jets and cruising their yachts. And set a rule that no more than two cars per family is permitted.
we would not need new sources of power if every car dealership and department stores and shopping malls, etc. did not need to use overkill when it comes to lighting. It is an enormous waste.
Everyone is yelling save the trees, don’t use plastic, go green!! Yet it’s our lawmakers and the big corporations that produce the products that are most harmful to our environment. The plastic and batteries used to make tech products. The tons of plastic used everyday for packaging at the warehouses that supply big businesses. And the stacks of paper that our govt. offices use to print useless information, are all beyond ridiculous and unnecessary If you have been to any govt. ran office or even a hospital lately you know what i mean by the stack of unnecessary paperwork they hand you on your way out the door.
If you want child abuse, domestic abuse and animal abuse to stop then make the punishment so severe that fear keeps people from becoming abusers. OR let the punishment fit the crime!!! that would definitely make people think twice. But slapping them on the hand or sending them to jail to hang with their buddies is not the answer And stop taking kids away from their parents and giving them to their grandparents. How stupid is that?? You are giving them to the people who raised the abusers in the first place
