Politics overall is so debased that now incumbents are stooping to dancing for votes. This is the evolution of the swamp. When this country was founded, politicians were elected based on their patriotism and ability to intelligently move the country on a path of prosperity. Politics was not considered a full time job and the first politicians were not salaried or compensated with expense accounts and bribes.
As the political arena evolved, so did the greed factor and the swamp was forming. Politicians moved towards greasing palms and creating files with unsavory information on their opposition to secure their jobs. This practices worked so well that most if not all politicians begin their career with moderate net worth and within a few terms their net worth soars exponential.
It is not only the political arena that has changed but the voter base is also being debased. A few youtubers are producing video channels with the only theme of pointing out how the common person is clueless about current issues or even who is in office. Most people interviewed parrot talking points they most likely got from watching fake news channels. One prominent channel is produced by Mark Dice, the videos are humorous but very sad that so many people can be duped by main stream news.
Things are changing and people are beginning to become aware that they are being played. Some indication of this change is the plummeting rating of certain news channels. Another is politicians running their campaigns by using off the wall gimmicks like Joyce Beatty. She aired this video of her and her staffers dancing to a rap ditty, as if this will show how she’s qualified to hold a political position. The video link is below.
Have a peek at how she votes on bills.
Voted Nay on: Agriculture and Nutrition Act of 2018
The legislation reauthorizes U.S. Department of Agriculture programs dealing with commodity support, conservation, farm credit, and crop insurance, among other things. The bill also includes provisions expanding work requirements and eligibility rules for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, previously known as the food stamp program.
Voted Nay on: Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act
Proposed amending the federal criminal code to make it a crime for any person to perform or attempt to perform an abortion if the probable post-fertilization age of the fetus was 20 weeks or more. The bill provided exceptions for an abortion: (1) that was necessary to save the life of the pregnant woman, or (2) when the pregnancy was the result of rape or incest.
Voted Nay on: Kate’s Law
Proposed increasing criminal penalties for individuals in the country illegally who were convicted of certain crimes, deported, and then re-entered the U.S. illegally.
The above vote summaries were obtained at ballotpedia.org. There are many more summaries which maybe of interest to understand why Beatty feels that to get re-elected she needs to start dancing.
