This video came up on my Facebook timeline today. I just had to share it with my tiny political audience. This is what really drives my political aspirations. I don't want to be a politician who sits around and just votes on party lines for the sole purpose of getting reelected. I want to be the shit-stirrer. I want to actually READ and COMPREHEND bills, I want to look my party leader in the eye and fearlessly say, "No" to supporting something that will not benefit my future district or state. I have my own set of thoughts, ideas, and opinions. And I stand by them. That is not to say that my thoughts, ideas, and opinions won't change as I learn more about the world or a topic and as I get older. That's natural of course. But I will not be a politician who gets so desperate for election/reelection that I blatantly lie to get what I strive for. If I can't earn my seat or job with what I really am and with what I really believe, I sure as hell don't deserve it for lying. Does that mean that I may be fated to be a one term politician? Maybe. I may never even be elected! But I never want to be the kind of person who lies and has to use back alley-methods to get what they want. And please, for the love of all that is holy, if I ever get to be this person, someone better find this blog post and send it to me! That's my teeny weeny political rant for now.
