Politicians… ugh.

In response to many of my letters out in opposition to gun control laws I see a common thread among the replies… it reads (and this is a quote from one of the responses):

“It is Congress’s responsibility to lead, and it’s time for me to take action.”

Actually, it is in no way shape or form the Senate or Congress’s job and “responsibility to lead”… it’s their job and responsibility to *REPRESENT THE PEOPLE*. They can come up with all the ideas in the world, but if their constituents don’t agree with it, they need to sit back, shut up and do their job even if representing an ideal that they don’t, themselves, believe in.

I’m so sick of these self-righteous politicians who think that it’s their job to go out there and tell me how I’m supposed to live my life simply because they were voted into office by a majority of people.

Being voted into office is not permission to declare your opinion the voice of the people.
