The “Defund the Police” movement is still going strong only they have figured out their politicians are not too keen on the title. Turns people off, so they change the name to “redistribute the funding”. They just won’t say where the funds to “redistribute” come from, even though everyone knows. So, with that in mind I have a proposal. One that will make those politicians put their money where their mouths are, or at least show them to be the hypocrites they are. (Like we really have to try to do that.)
Someone needs to propose legislation eliminating the taxpayer funded personal protection details for all public officials from the Congressional level down. If they want personal protection it will have to be at their personal expense. Additionally they will be levied a special 2% tax on their salaries that is to be earmarked for “redistribution” Also all these “non-profit” organizations that advocate for this “redistribution” will be required to immediately cease all salaries being paid to anyone in their organization and the money reallocated for “redistribution”. An annual audit by the IRS will be required to maintain their non-profit status and failure to comply will result in the immediate termination of that status.
I say if they want to play with our lives and safety they have to have some skin in the game. Their lives and families are no more important than ours, despite what they might think of themselves. Let’s see how long these stupid ideas last when they are in the crosshairs with the rest of us. This needs to be the first in a series of actions by us, the regular American people, to regain control of an out of control situation.
Defending the police, doing away with bonds, ignore the law, releasing convicted criminals for “humanitarian reasons” are incredibly stupid decisions made by incredibly stupid people that aren’t worried about it because they are immune to the results, and were put into these positions of power by voters, some of whom voted the way they told to vote.
You’ve heard the saying those that ignore history are doomed to repeat it. So, with that in mind…
Vive les Etats-Unis!
Vive la liberte!
Let’s see how many of you can figure out what I’m referring to.
