What I'm saying is I'm tired of people going along with the government without even realizing it. The ndaa doesnkt make anything legal. It can't
supercede he constituion ad is thus invalid. So instead of saying "oh no, the goernment made this illegal, they can't do that" say "haha, silly
government. Pretend time is fun, isn't it?"
You may not speak (or type) that eloquently, but I like the way you think.
Do you know why I think people just take what the Government gives them? Because they think they're in charge. Even though we pay their salary via
our taxes AND vote them in, which effectively makes us their boss, everyone thinks its the other way around.
The thing is this. Most people in Washington whom we vote in have other means of making money and, more times than not, what they get paid by way of
our tax dollars pales in comparison to what they REALLY make in whatever endeavor they have on the side. Be it real estate, big oil, the stock market,
whatever. This is why lawmakers in Washington don't look at it like" We work for the people" because the bottom line is that we don't pay that
So why do they do it? Why do they become politicians in the first place? Especially in the case of the top guy on that list who's only rich because
HIS WIFE is the one with the money. ( This gives you an indication of the type of "men" we have in charge in Washington) Power, control, and the
means to expand on their own personal wealth. That, in my opinion, is why they do it. Especially the third one.
Think about it. What better way is there to build more wealth than to pass laws which will have a direct or indirect influence on the WAYS that you
make your wealth. People need to put less focus on the theory that Washington wants to control us by passing inane laws like this rainwater issue, and
put more focus on the fact that when a law is passed it's more likely to be becasue someone can profit in someway from it. This is just one
This is what they get paid in Wahington:
See the salary for New York state?
The only reason I'm using this next example is because this is the largest private employer in the world. This helps put the money issue in
A store manager for a supercenter for a corporation that makes less of a profit only to the U.S. Department of Defense makes, on average, more than a
top lawmaker in New York state which LEADS the states in salaries for lawmakers.
Still think that lawmakers do what they do because they CARE about you? Start paying attention. They care about their bank accounts. That's it.
That's the way it's always been. You wanna find a person in charge wo's worth following, listening to and respecting? Respect the people who REALLY
help keep this economy on its feet. Managers in stores like the one I linked. Something tells me they EARN their paycheck.
Class dismissed. Let's dance.
