I asked the same question to Congresswoman Gaberielle Giffords recently. She visited a local mall near me and was having one-on-one meetings with
anyone. Giffords believed words have meaning and is not able to say somethings as a representative. Her answer to my question was that it is
Democracy with certain values. I asked, is that government? She then reworded her sentence with the same answer. I asked, is that even Democracy?
Giffords broke eye contact with me and looked away from me thinking. It was silent for a few seconds as she was still thinking. I told her that in a
public speaking class i was taught words do not have meaning. Some noticeable examples I gave were with non verbals and different languages. She
started speaking to me in a different language. I looked at her with a smile on my face and told her I didn't understand a thing. My time was up and
she asked me to sign up for news letters and sign up for a committee to help out.
I was not disappointed with my results with Gaberielle Giffords and I am looking forward to posts here.
What is government if words do not have meaning?
