You Might Be
Straight from the rural side of the aisle I give you: “You might be a legislator…”By Representative Jim Wilson
-If you forgive your enemies, but never forget their names, you might be a legislator.
-If your library was destroyed by fire -- you lost both your books, and you hadn’t finished coloring one of them, you might be a legislator.
-If you use the phrase “they might have mis-under-estimated me”, you might be a legislator.
-If you lust after the offering plate at church as a source of campaign contributions, you might be a legislator.
-If you ever voted for a bill then turned around and voted against it, you might be a legislator.
-If you have ever been told, “When ignorance goes to forty dollars a barrel, I want drilling rights to your head”, you might be a -legislator.
- If your campaign committee tells you “Don't buy a single vote more than is necessary – we don’t have enough money to pay for a landslide.”, you might be a legislator.
-If you have ever been told, “Don't be so humble -- you are not that great”, you might be a legislator.
-If your opening day of baseball depends less on the weather and more on appropriations, you might be a legislator.
-If you have ever been accused of being:
“Left wing, anti-fracking, pro-choice, anti-gun, pro-union, tax us back to the Stone Age because people shouldn't have to go to work if they don't want to….”
You were accused of being right-wing, reactionary, xenophobic, homophobic, anti-education, anti-choice, pro-gun, Leave-It-to-Beaver trip back to the '50s”…
You fit right in!!!
