Should a voter discern if a legislator is an extremist who campaigns to change established ancient landmark Constitutional laws or plans that in effect serve to invade the rights of others?

The Chicago Tribune columnist article titled: ‘Extremism fatigue in politics> Get used to it, reported the following statement:

“But I could not help but notice the paranoid vibe in what he said next: Democrats “are weak on crime” and “don’t like the Second Amendment,” Masters said, because “it frankly blocks a lot of their plans for us.”

Plans? What plans? And what does he mean by “us?”

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate an ancient proverb and idiom to this conundrum question “what does he mean by us?”

King Solomon

Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set. (Proverb 22:28)

Bible hub Excerpt

“Do not enrich thyself with the injury of other men: do not invade the rights of others”.

Idiom – “be pissing in(to) the wind”

To be doing something totally pointless, fruitless, or futile; to be wasting one’s time doing something that will not or cannot come to pass.

What’s My Point?

If we discern the article message and compare what politicians are now campaigning for office and/or promising can be interpreted as extremist views to attempt to effect perceived changes which have already proven to have failed in history.

Perhaps we should discern if all they are attempting to change going to result in more fruitless, pointless, rhetoric to change what has already been established and proven in history to work?

In My Opinion,

All the current rhetoric about crime, shootings, killings, is exactly what politicians thrive on in order to obtain publicity to be elected into office.

Crime and punishment remedies have been recorded in history since the beginning of time.

The landmarks have not changed.

For example,

If we do not train or discipline a child in youth during the most vulnerable and impressible years in his life, the risks of him or her increase in their choosing a path of folly for the rest of the lives.

The USA has served to accumulate thirty trillion dollars of National Debt by doing exactly what the above idiom described and the result is up to 50 percent in some governing bodies of all tases are used to pay the interest on the government borrowing.

In my opinion, what we need to do is protect and restore the ancient landmarks of our founders instead of listening to politicians’ rhetoric to effect proposed changes that result in what is described in the idiom.

You Decide

Is the legislator you are going to vote for in the upcoming election rhetoric promises based on established landmarks or more extremism views that have already proven in history to have been folly that failed?

Is the legislator you are going to vote for sending you information of his actual plans if elected or is he or she just criticize their opponents’ political prairies or affiliations?
