The Lost Concept of a Public Servant

Every time I Call, Write, or email My representatives. The 1st thing I tell them is that I want TERM LIMITS for all elected officials. Until the majority of constituents are telling them that. It will fall on deaf ears. Once the majority of people are applying that pressure and keep applying it we will have TERM LIMITS. This country will not survive with CAREER POLITICIANS.. I wonder how many people actually contact their representatives?

This is the second in a series on unions in America.

Public Servant is defined in Webster’s dictionary as a government official or employee. When I was growing up that perception was accepted on a near-universal basis. Christopher Stevens, our deceased Libyan Ambassador, would fulfill that role in most people’s eyes. Certainly members of the military are truly public servants. But because of public employee unions, our former public servants are really at odds with the public.

We have felt that our public employees were against us for a long time as they have used their unionized power to collect...
