I am tired of hearing that an elected official is elected to represent all constituents. That is a lie. Tell me, how is it possible to serve everyone when their beliefs are opposite?
One side wants abortion, the other doesn’t. One side wants to do away with guns, the other doesn’t. One side wants forced vaccines, vaccine mandates and passports, and the other side doesn’t. One side actively encourages crossover voting, the other wants to abolish it. One side hates fossil fuels, the other doesn’t. One side believes in socialism, the other capitalism. One side believes $20,000/student isn’t enough to spend on education, the other believes it’s too much. One side clearly believes that there shouldn’t be election parties since they believe everyone should run under one banner, the other believes there are different parties and their respective platforms define them.
So tell me, how can you serve ALL constituents when they believe opposite things? You CAN’T. What politicians really mean to say is “I don’t believe this platform I am running under, but I want you to vote for me.” Why, if R.J. Kost is representing everyone, does he vote the Republican platform only 10% of the time? If he were representing everyone, wouldn’t he hit the Republican platform at least 50% of the time? But, no, he is representing the Democrats because he votes their platform 90% of the time. The same goes for Sandy Newsome, who voted the Republican platform 30% of the time. (WyoRino.com) Republicans don’t feel represented because their representatives aren’t working for them; they are working against them.
Now you know why true Republicans want candidates who say they will uphold the platform at least 80% of the time! We believe an R behind their name should mean something besides “I’m going to vote with the Democrats.”
