The only real way is to do it on a local level... by contacting your state representatives and put pressure on your respective Governors...
You know, I hear this all the time. I think it was Tip O'neill who once said "All politics is local," a phrase that has been repeated over and
over, especially among our modern day TP/GOP who endlessly blame the federal government for all their woes. Now how ironic is that?
These are my questions; If all politics are local, then why do you continually blame the feds for everything wrong in your life?
Is it the federal government that won't fix the potholes in your neighborhoods?
Is it the federal government that goes around offering tax abatements for companies to locate in your state and passing the associated cost off on the
taxpaying citizens? (This strategy pits state against state in a mad race to see who can get to the bottom first, all the while robbing the state's
coffers of much needed revenue thereby leaving it up to the state's taxpaying citizens to make up the difference.)
Was it the federal government that drove my property taxes up from $500 annually 20 yrs. ago to $2,600 today? (None of which goes to the federal
Is it the federal government that's going around initiating repressive voter I.D. laws in your state?
Is it the federal government that's going around closing women's health clinics in your state?
Is it the federal government that's attempting to limit your choice to marry who you choose?
Was it the federal government that instituted the Nazi like "Papers please" statutes in Arizona?
And those are just a few!
It's been my experience that the most repressive initiatives are coming from the state & local level right now, but the only thing I hear coming from
people such as yourself is a call to eliminate the federal government.
What a joke!
If "All politics are local," then why not call for the elimination of the actual problem, which is state & local governments currently under the
control of the TP/GOP?
That's not to say that we don't have problems at the federal level, but that doesn't justify blaming the federal government for all your problems
when in fact most of those problems come from the state & local governments.
Reminds me of the guy who was all up in arms claiming the federal government shut down his car wash business in Alabama or Mississippi. (I can't
remember which) As it turned out, he owned a topless carwash business that was shut down by a city ordinance adopted at the "local level" and the
feds had absolutely noting to do with it. (An ordinance that I too would have supported by the way.)
If you really want to fix the problem, maybe you should wake up and take a closer look at just who is really responsible.
