Before I start here’s a little something for your listening pleasure.
Timeless, wouldn’t you say?
Ok – The 4 things I learned from politics are:
- The American Dream shouldn’t put us in bondage. They tell us we own our homes and yet we owe lenders at the same time.
- People take delight in telling us how to live our lives. We have everything from zoning and environmental laws to laws mandating the use of vaccines.
- Our tax system is a progressive one. The more money we make, the more taxes we owe. (Tell me again – how does the tax system favor the rich? Oh yeah! Loopholes…)
- Learn and listen to the language. Today, our laws are written with all feel good words.
“Those who control the language control the argument, and those who control the argument are more likely to successfully translate belief into policy.”
So, now you know…
