  • With what I am going to say, some people will take offense. Tough!
    My question has always been why do Democratic lawmakers in both Washington and in Albany hold citizens that don't agree with them in contempt and demonize them for their beliefs.
    In fact, in all of the states as of late. This country is made up of people that hold differing opinions that should be respected, not disrespected.
    We don't always agree with the other fellow, but sometimes have to meet halfway and compromise.
    Our elected officials for the most part forget why they were elected, and think that the voters elected them to lifetime jobs.
    They forget that they were elected to do the people’s work, not the wishes of the party bosses and lobbyists.
    And don't forget, for the most part they enrich themselves in the process, at the expense of the taxpayers.
    I close with lawmakers shouldn't pass laws that they themselves don't have to live under, and that term limits are in order.
