This last COVID relief bill is flagrantly off topic and a huge disappointment to us! I am not in Congress, but if anyone in Congress wants to listen, here's how I would write the "COVID Relief" bill:
1.) We need relief from oppression! Let's start there. The governmental chains around our hands have caused great damage to businesses and individuals. We need fewer laws, not more laws. It is inappropriate for a government to destroy a small business and then throw some money at it thinking it can make it all better.
2.) Instead of sending out checks, we should have an "Income Tax Holiday", so the citizens would get the same amount of relief, but without all the hassles and inaccuracies of printing and mailing checks. Nothing would get lost and dead people would not receive anything. Only those who are working would get the bonus. It would put money into their bank accounts in the form of greater take home pay and help to "starve the beast". If the government has plenty of money to pass out, it certainly has too much money!Read More
Politics has become a dirty business. We have all heard plenty of news stories of elected officials involved in scandals, adultery and illegal behavior sending them to prison. There is an old line, “What’s a nice girl like you doing in a place like this?” With all the political nastiness, many wonder why a decent person would enter such a vicious arena. The reason is simple. I love my country, I love my family and I care enough about both to commit my life to preserving that for which our founding fathers lived and died.
Our loyalty must lie with the principles that made our nation strong. We must stand for the Constitution, limited government, and personal responsibility. Many office holders have let us down because they forgot to put those ideals ahead of their own political self-interest. People become disillusioned because they see people run on one set of values only to morph into different people once they become mired in the slime of big money and beholden to the lobbyists. We owe it to our country to change those people. We all have a role to play in our own spheres of influence. Stay with me and you will see that at least one person is capable of putting principles over politics. Together, let’s improve the state we’re in!
