What’s fair about minority rule?
March 7, 2016
Majority Lives Matter
When I was a kid, I was the minority in my family. I had my own culture, and I refused to assimilate. This was quite the challenge for my mother, especially at dinner time, or when we went out for ice cream. But somehow, we made it through, and yes, the majority usually got what they wanted.
Out of fairness, my family would try to accommodate me – sometimes! But I wasn’t allowed to run the family, and I didn’t always get my way at the expense of the rest of the family. Yes, as the baby of the family, I cried the most, and probably got my way more than I should have. But I don’t remember tearing things up when I didn’t get my way, and I’m sure if I did, I got the “S” word, right on my little butt.
But welcome to the progressive USA, where we are, in fact, ruled by the minority. What’s fair about that?
Hopefully, it’s about to change, if WE THE PEOPLE have anything to say about it. But there is another minority – Republican establishment types like Mitt Romney, Democrats, and foreign leaders – in the car seat crying, “I don’t want to go to McDonald’s, I want Burger King!” They are telling the voters, “Vote for anybody BUT Trump.” But once they get rid of Trump, they’ll go after Cruz too, because they really don’t want either of these candidates.
This is one of the strangest times in the history of American politics. But when I think back to my childhood, it helps me to stay focused on what issues are truly important:
Welfare Reform: No, you cannot have my hotdog. Get you own.
Taxes: No, you cannot have my allowance.
Economy: Yes, I’m starting a lawn mowing business. If I succeed, I’ll need to hire others. But I won’t do the work for you, or pay you (or your bills) if you don’t show up for work. And if you slough-off, I will fire your butt.
Immigration: Yes, you can come to my house if: 1) you come to my door and knock, 2) I have time to assess who you are and what you want, and then and only then, 3) if I invite you in. Otherwise, no, you cannot come into my house, raid my refrigerator, take my job, or kill or rape my family. I’m just not that hospitable (or stupid).
Defense: No, you cannot egg my house or break my windows (with bombs or airplanes). And I will make my house a formidable fortress to prevent you from doing so, and I’ll have a big-ass lethal military to keep you from even thinking about doing it. And if you still find a way to do it, I will come to your house and bomb the ever living sh*t out of you, your house, and your children! (Oh, but the children? I think you heard what Mr. George Carlin said about that one.)
Iran: No, you are not my neighbor. You live in a real bad neighborhood, and you made it that way. I wouldn’t give you a nuclear weapon even if you weren’t shouting death to me and my family, and calling us Satan. We don’t need any more crazy dictators with nuclear weapons. We already have one in North Korea we need to take out. That’s plenty.
Voter Fraud: No, holding up your hand twice will not get you two ice cream cones, and I will check hands (and picture IDs) to make sure you didn’t get two, you little cheat. I’m not trying to discourage you from getting ice cream. I’m making sure no one cheats.
And don’t tell me I’m “suppressing your vote.” I’ll have that same government bus that drove your butt to the voting booths to vote Democrat, drive your butt downtown to get your government issued photo I.D. (And remember, people were required to have a photo I.D. to go to the rally in Washington D.C. to protest voter I.D. laws!)
I might even ask for 2 forms of ID, just like the bank, because I think the future of our home is worth more than all the money in the bank.
So what’s so damn hard to figure out? Nothin’! Just a few dishonest little brats want to run the lives of everyone else, and it needs to stop.
