The first thing you should demand from your government…

Posted: February 18, 2017 in Uncategorized

The most important thing, bar none, that your government can do – must do – is to be truthful and transparent regardless of party, policy, or ideology. Your government works for you. It is your servant. As Lincoln famously said, in America we have a government, “of the people, by the people and for the people.” That is the bedrock of our Democracy.

A government that withholds, obfuscates, misrepresents or tells falsehoods should never be tolerated in a democracy. Raw, naked honesty is the first thing you must demand from your government. They. Work. For. You. Regardless of what you think of their promises and policies, if they are not honest with you, they cannot govern effectively because you can never trust that they have your best interests in mind.

Demand that your politicians are honest with you. If not, you must vote them out. It is every American’s responsibility to do so. It doesn’t matter what their party is or what you think they may accomplish. A dishonest government is like a dishonest employee. They will eventually sink your company. Anything but a transparent and forthright government is a cancer in a Democracy. It is self-serving by definition. You should demand honesty first and foremost from your public servants or our Democracy will crumble.

    First off a disclaimer: I didn’t vote for Trump. However, if the only issue is:

    Based on Honesty/Transparency– Trump or Hillary –GO VOTE NOW

    Then I vote Trump. Between Obama’s “most transparent in history” broken campaign promise and Hillary’s role in that as Sec of St., plus the litany of Clinton scandals, it’s an easy choice.

    I believe media transparency and honesty is at least equally important and they have failed here–acting with outrage over minor faux pas, printing outright fake stories, and reporting in such a negative tone that I feel many outlets have lost their objectivity.

    Fueled by Trump actually doing what he said he would do (transparent? check!) as well as the media bias, I see a cognitive dissonance from some in the far left that is borderline hallucination–riots, violence, protests when the protestors don’t even know what they are protesting. But it’s fading. Eight weeks ago he was Hitler. Now he’s just Nixon. In another 8 weeks, Reagan?
