I am wondering who actually votes for the Tim Donnellys in the California Legislature? Of course I also wonder who votes for quite a few of our state level representatives and our federal level representatives.
Tim Donnelly suggests that we eliminate the Employment Development Department since unemployment is high. If that is the solution to that problem, then does it make sense to eliminate the Police Department and crime will go away? Or eliminate the Fire Department, and we won’t have fires? Or eliminate hospitals and we won’t have anyone sick?
Exactly who votes for a Michele Bachman in Minnesota who thinks the Founding Fathers were trying to eliminate slavery? I am pretty sure that we all learned that was not true at around fifth grade when we started studying such subjects. I know that it was covered in what we used to call junior high school, and I am positive that we covered that subject in high school.
I guess these people get elected because they don’t say these very idiotic things while campaigning, and then say them after being elected. Of course you would think that they would not get elected again, once it is pointed out what they actually say and believe … but wait, Michele Bachman has been elected and re-elected. Does her district in Minnesota not get to hear what she actually says?
It is very hard to believe that there are actual representatives who think (or not think) and say such ridiculous things.
