Politicians think you’re stupid

To the Editor:

They know you’re too stupid to decide for yourself. Most of the laws coming out of Concord and Washington are saying: “We know the people who elected us really aren’t smart enough to make their own decisions about their own lives.”

Some of the people we’ve elected support “a woman’s right to choose”. However that right to choose doesn’t extend to what medical insurance to buy, whether or how she may choose to defend herself against violence, whether to join a union or not, or any any number of choices that people of normal intelligence can make for themselves.

The real “hidden agenda” of most people running for office is: They think they’re smarter than everyone else, and they think what’s good for them must be good for everyone. Their blind spot is that they can’t believe that any intelligent person could disagree with them. They give lip service to “diversity”, but can’t understand that everyone’s life is different.

Do a little research on the people who want to be elected to offices in Concord and Washington. The ones who have “plans” for everyone are the ones who think you’re too stupid. The few who have a little humility may be worth voting for. On the other hand, if you think you’re too stupid to run your own life…
