Government Officials. Two words when put together leaves an extremely sour and repulsive taste in my mouth. I probably wouldn’t have this foul taste in my mouth when it comes to the government if it were the same size it was 200 years ago, instead of the monolithic bureaucracy of incompetence it is today. And if it were staffed with statesmen instead of career corruptocrats, that would make a big difference as well.
I’m fully onboard with the nearly 9 of 10 Americans who believe, when it comes to the marketplace, that government officials, whether they be federal, state, or local, need to get to the back of the bus, sit down, shut up, and stay the hell out of the marketplace’s way.
When the president of Chick-fil-A spoke out in support of traditional marriage in a recent interview, the mayors of Boston, Chicago and San Francisco angrily responded by saying the fast-food chain wasn’t welcome in their cities. But voters overwhelmingly believe those mayors should butt out.
Eighty-seven percent (87%) of Likely U.S. Voters say government officials should not be allowed to prohibit a business from opening if they disagree with the political views of the business owner. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only three percent (3%) think government officials should have the power to stop businesses because they disagree politically with the owners.
And those 3% should be taken out and permanently maimed because people who think like that, have no place in America. You people are not wanted here. Leave.
