If Republicans want a winning platform, it should be the anti-useless people platform. It seems pretty much all of the Democrats are career politicians who’ve never accomplished anything in their entire lives yet for some unfathomable reason think they’re smart and should be able to tell us all what to do. The reason people are so mad is their just starting to come to grips with how insane that is. Ted Kennedy’s death just amplifies that; what in his entire life suggests he should even give people advice nonetheless make the rules?
Of course, it’s not like Republican politicians are that great either. So I suggest we pass a new Amendment: The Purge. Every so many years, everyone is thrown out of the federal government and banned from politics. This forces us to get a new government every so often and emphasizes the fact to politicians that politics is a temporary thing and eventually you have to get a real job.
Originally, the government was supposed to be so small and limited it didn’t matter what idiots we gave it to. Since that ideal is pretty much gone, let’s at least police a bit better who we give the keys to the car to. Half the Congress probably couldn’t have gotten a job managing a shift at the local Dairy Queen, and yet their trying to take over anything in the economy they can get their grubby little hands on. It’s crazy, and if the Republicans want to succeed they should just keep pointing out how insane that is.
