BE A RESPONSIBLE ELECTED LEGISLATOR

BE A RESPONSIBLE ELECTED LEGISLATOR
By Woodrow Wilcox

Be a responsible elected legislator. A responsible elected legislator reads and studies a proposed bill before voting on it. A responsible elected legislator allows time for the voters to read and study a proposed law and advise their legislators about what they like or don’t like about it. A responsible elected legislator takes seriously the oath of office promise “to protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies . . . .” How can you uphold that oath without reading and studying a bill or amendment before voting on it? You can’t. It is impossible. How would you know for sure that no part of the bill harms the Constitution and the liberties that it guarantees?

Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have become high pressure sales artists. They want legislators to vote on Saturday nights when voters can’t reach legislators through the normal switchboards. They ask legislators to vote for bills or amendments without first reading them. Those are the tactics of high pressure sales artists.

If you sign a contract without reading it first because a high pressure sales artist persuades you to sign before reading and understanding the contract, then you are irresponsible. If you support a bill or amendment or procedure to forward a bill or amendment without reading it, studying it, and allowing the voters to review it and advise you, then you are an irresponsible legislator. And the label of “IRRESPONSIBLE” will stick on you in the next election.

High pressure sales artists pressure their victims to sign a contract before reading it because the high pressure sales artists don’t want the victim to learn what is in the contract before signing it. So, don’t be a victim of the high pressure sales tactics of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. Be a responsible elected legislator. Allow the people to review every proposed law, amendment, and procedure and advise you on what they would like you to do. If you will insist on listening to the people in this way, then in the next election, no one will be able to brand you as “IRRESPONSIBLE”.

  1. Get "Elements of Style" by Strunk and White... the redundancy make it a burden to read. Find synonyms for "high pressure sales artist" which is used too many times. Don't use the same word or phrase twice in consecutive sentences- or in the same sentence as in:

    "High pressure sales artists pressure their victims to sign a contract before reading it because the high pressure sales artists don’t want the victim to learn what is in the contract before signing it."

    Which means the same thing as:

    "High pressure sales artists pressure their victims into signing a contract too quickly to understand what it says."

    Punchier... and roughly half the length.

    I'm not big on the pejorative use of "artist" but you know your audience.
