So you want to know what it takes to become a national politician? How about spending your day at the town transfer station getting signers for your petitions in 30 and 40 degree cold with the wind blowing. I've had better days, but today was a good day. I got about 65 signatures. I'm nearly frozen, but I got my quota of signatures. I even got a guy with a MAGA red hat on. 2 people asked me if I voted for 45, and of course I said no. Didn't get theirs. But still again, the majority of my signers want an independent.
They are very tired of the fact that the 2 parties will not talk to one another and reach compromises for the good of the COUNTRY! The Republican House just 2 days ago tried to pass a constitutional amendment whereby they could take the Social Security Trust Fund money and use it elsewhere. They never give up and it's getting disgusting. The average worker and retiree doesn't stand a chance if we don't get people in the Congress with an agenda that is not predicated on making the wealthy wealthier and the middle class poor!
I spoke with a teacher last week, who was in a big hurry. He was late for his second job. I've heard people say that all teachers do is bitch about lousy pay and lousy benefits. I would like to see those people do a teachers job in this political climate, and then they want to make them the armed guard in the classroom. GET REAL!
I honestly wonder some days if we are not already over the threshold. This insanity has to stop!
Use your voices, use your vote, and make it count. Listen to everyone and choose wisely. Pick some new blood for a change. As DT would say, what have you got to lose?
Your LIFE, maybe, if you don't? You're losing everything else.
I talked to one guy today and he had it all figured out, DT was doing a fantastic job and all was going to go well. I told him, "I disagree with you completely, but you have a good day", shook his hand and let it go. But I let him have his say.
So that was my day. Peace to all. #Resist2018 dennismoconnor.com
