Elected

September 3, 2012

“We elected you as our representatives. Our taxes pay your salaries. That means—like postal employees—you work for us.  Every last one of you: president on down.

You wanted these positions, thankless though they may be. You actually ran for them. Don’t complain if it is troublesome to do them right.  Try working in a coal mine sometime, or standing in an unemployment line.

Somewhere along the way, you decided we could be lied to at will…Don’t imagine we’re not aware of your contempt. It’s just that we’ve had so few choices among you.  Hope is engineered into our genes. Elections are far enough apart that a glimmer of it resurfaces and, a few of us at least, head to the polls again.

Try and imagine your jobs actually matter. In point of fact, they do. We don’t need your ‘spin doctors’ to tell us what to think. Just do your jobs, and we can manage all on our own to figure out if you’ve done them right.”

– Excerpt from An Evangelical on the Left, Partisan Politics
