Question with 5 notes
wickedblow-deactivated20120919 asked: First off, I think I like you. In that way. Secondly, how do you feel about Mike Bost, the representative who flipped his shit when he was given like 15 minutes to review a 200 page bill? When they aired the clip on CNN, they made a big deal about him quoting a bible verse, when that's obviously not the real issue. The dude was pretty spot on with what he was saying.
Thank you for the message. I appreciate it. I am surprised you would feel that way with how secretive I am about my real identity on here but I am certainly flattered. I actually really liked seeing the clip of Mike Bost making the rounds yesterday. He was impassioned and real, he was genuinely frustrated with the fact that he is not able to do his job the way he should be able to. Real emotion like that is something rare to see from a politician but something we could really use more of.
Politics in the United States, especially lately, have become such a joke. The political system is broken and doesn’t show any signs of becoming any better. We could use more men like Mike Bost getting honestly upset and showing it, that is about the only chance we have of ever pushing for political reform and change. We vote against our interests, we vote for lawyers who are experienced at having the best argument instead of having the best policies, and we allow real issues to get muddles in a sea of distractions. Hopefully we see some real changes to the way we address politics soon.
