Lawmakers need to validate their existence. They often use their positions to inject their own personal views, agendas, and values into the process rather than *serving* their constituents and protecting their rights. This is why they make so many bad laws designed to victimize peaceful people and grow the state. They also like to pretend you’re a child and they’re your daddy, or mama, or even doctor, and force decisions on you that they believe are in YOUR best interest.
From denying people a healing plant gifted to us by mother nature to further suppressing our ability to petition our government because someone is afraid that the people of Oklahoma are indeed ready to legalize marijuana, the nanny state legislators of Oklahoma are putting a foot down – right on our throats!
I’m not paying you, legislators, (albeit involuntary with my tax dollars) to make decisions regarding my health or wealth. And to further insult the intelligence of Oklahomans, we are told that we don’t understand the bills, we don’t understand what we’re voting for. Really?! Well, what does that say about YOU, then, Mr./Mrs. Legislator?
I’m a grown woman. You’re not my daddy, or my mama, or my nanny, or my doctor or any of those things to my own child. Stop using (abusing) your position at the capitol to practice medicine or *force/deny* medical treatments for people…ever. It’s shameful. That is not your job.
If I could, I’d fire you.
