Whether we realize it or not we all learn at a young age that everything we do has a consequence. If you touch the hot stove, you get burned. If you punch your sibling, they might punch back, only harder. Why do we forget consequences when we become older? Why do people forget that absolutely everything we do has a consequence?
Politicians Act, You Pay
We All Pay The Consequences
When will Americans understand that the actions of our politicians have consequences and we pay for those consequences. The politicians whom we elect to Congress seem to believe that what they are in office to do is pass laws.
Law creation is a “politicians thing”. And this is precisely how American politicians have become dangerous. When politicians pass new laws, there are consequences. With the passage of new laws, you lose some of your individual freedom. Yes, you lose your freedom. The “other guy” doesn’t just lose their freedom, you do also. Loss of freedom is a personal thing.
It’s A Personal Thing
Americans have become selfish. We feel that if it is not happening to us – it’s okay. If the “other guy” is affected it’s okay. When it happens to us, then it becomes a reason for concern…then it becomes personal. And only when an issue becomes personal do we take an interest, otherwise we ignore it.
Our complacency until it becomes personal is why politicians have been allowed to become so powerful. And now we are all paying for it.
You Pay From New Laws
Wake up America; the power we have given our politicians to pass laws should be a personal thing.
Laws effect all of us in some way. Laws have a trickle down effect. You may not personally have to abide by a new law, but indirectly your freedom is diminished by that new law…and it becomes a personal thing.
Trickle Down To You
When the government passes laws that increases taxes to corporations you aren’t concerned because you think it doesn’t effect you. When the government passes a law that employers must give every employee health insurance and absorb the costs, you aren’t concerned because “you got yours”. You may even say good these corporations deserve it.
But do you honestly think that corporations can stay in business by continually absorbing tax increases and additional costs? They can’t.
To remain profitable enough to stay in business, corporations have to pass the increased cost of doing business on. They pass the increased costs onto you the consumer. So, there is your trickle down – you have to pay more for goods and services.
If corporations do not pass the costs onto the consumer they cannot afford to stay in business. Then guess what the trickle down effect to you is – unemployment. So then the government has to support more unemployed workers. So then the government has to either raise your taxes to pay for that support or maybe cut out a program that you were relying on.
Amazing isn’t it how closely we are tied together, and how intricate our system is. Touch the hot stove – get burned. Pass more and more laws – suffer more and more consequences.
