  • Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

    When the government's boot is on your throat, whether it is a left boot or a right boot is of no consequence.

    We have a system that increasingly taxes and subsidizes nonwork.

    Those of us who manage the public dollars will be held to account to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day, because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and our government.

An Idea for Helping With Some of the USA’s Problems

I just had a thought, so I thought I’d write a short post about it.  First of all, this is definitely not an original thought.  I have seen ideas like this in many forms before, but I think it bears repeating.  Second of all, a fact—our entire Congress, and, for that matter, all of our elected officials, are bought and paid for by big-money interests, i.e., the 1%.  Now, if you’re part of the 1%, good for you.  I hope you made your money without the benefit of government “favors”.  If, like us here at Bohicaville, you’re part of the 99%, it seems as though we are 2nd class citizens when it comes to “representation”.

So, here’s the idea.  For the 2014 midterm elections, do not vote for anyone who’s running as a Republican or a Democrat.  And if those are your only choices, then write in a name, any name.  Also, don’t vote for anyone who’s held any kind of elected office before, ever.  We were originally supposed to have Representatives who were citizen legislators.  How many independent farmers, teachers, truck drivers, waitresses, mechanics, self-employed entrepreneurs, accountants, cashiers, firefighters, police officers, musicians, artists, writers, nurses, orderlies, country doctors, fishermen, longshoremen, toll collectors, train engineers, bus drivers, flight attendants, pilots, factory workers, manual laborers, masons, landscapers, window washers, maids, secretaries (and other low-level cubicle dwellers), taxi drivers, fast-food workers, etc., etc., hold any kind of elected office right now?  Not too many, folks.  Not too many.  Now, for the next state or local elections in your respective state, follow these same rules.

If you like this unoriginal idea, then please share it, and spread it around.  Things won’t start to change in this country until we the people say, “I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!”.
