If I could tell our federal government what to do, and what not to do, here would be my list:
Don’t allow US companies to offshore anything just because it’s cheaper.
Do make them hire American workers. Period.
Don’t allow corporations and super-rich people the ability to send their money to the Cayman Islands, et. al., for investment purposes and to avoid taxes.
Do make them save and spend here, just like the rest of us.
Don’t control schools anymore. You’ve all done a terrible job of it.
Do allow school choice. It won’t kill teachers, and it will definitely help students.
Don’t let identity politics and all this crazy gender crap rule the day anymore.
Do allow Johnny to be Jane so long as zhe pays for the sex change operation and doesn’t make us create any stupid laws protecting zim/zer (zhir? zher? Oh, fuck, never mind. Oy.).
Don’t mess with anyone’s religion. Just don’t.
Don’t allow lobbyists.
Don’t give so-called “think tanks” the time of day.
Just let us be who we are, as we struggle to survive (and hopefully get enough income to pay our bills and taxes and take a vacation now and then without losing our homes).
Just let us be US, without all the crap and costs and stupid stuff that you all keep doing to us, and allowing us to do to you.
