K.I.S.S. — Keep It Simple Senator (and Representative)

by Cynthia Toney

Many men have asked: “What do women want?”

The answer is the same as for this question: “What do the majority of American citizens want?” 

Just in case any member of Congress is still confused, has cotton stuffed in his or her ears, or has been blindfolded by the “party,” here’s the answer—and it’s very simple.

We want to be first.

We want to be first in your hearts, in your minds, and in your decision-making.

We hate to nag, but for more than two centuries we have devoted our love and attention to making this country—our home—safer, more beautiful, and more prosperous than any other on earth.

We have created a country of which you can be proud, and in which we can raise our children in comfort and according to our values.

We’re not happy when you give more consideration to the concerns of your party, to socialist leaders in Congress, or to lobbyists who pressure and offer favors in order to influence you.

We are upset when you spend more time on fundraising events than on reading the bills that you are passing—from which you will be conveniently exempt.

We are frustrated when you use our hard-earned money to protect and support the mistresses that are big finance and big unions.

We are disgusted when you allow our laws to be ignored by illegal aliens or by immigrants who bring their own legal systems from their homelands.

We feel angry when you cooperate with the global governance of United Nations treaties or confirm Supreme Court Justices who blatantly declare their intentions to strip away our Constitutional rights.

We are ready to leave you when you try to drown us in debt, all the while expecting us to cover your extravagant spending (even giving our money to foreign governments) as we struggle to live on less and less.

If you really want this relationship to work, then put us first.

Simply stop and ask yourself, “What would my American citizen want?”

  1. Cindy – I love this blog! It says it all, focused and direct. I'm familiar with the acronym, K.I.S.S ( "Keep It Simple, Stupid"), having been advised to do that many times in my career (especially as a copywriter). This is a clever use of the term and really speaks to the fundamental feelings and beliefs of most conservatives. Good work!

  2. Thank you, Clio! You always seem to "get" what I write. I hope our readers will take this simple message to their newly-elected Senators and Representatives. The idea of putting us first might catch on!

  3. Cindy – How a propos at this time in our mid-term election cycle. We are getting ready to start fresh with a new and untainted class of senators and representatives. It is time to take back our country – answering the question, "What would my American citizen want?" KISS is so relevant to the solution of our current and future challenges. The time has come to address the needs and wants of the constituents according to the doctrine of our Constitution.

  4. Genevieve, thank you for the kind words. If each bill in the House or Senate were required to identify the provision in the Constitution that grants Congress the authority to pass it, our government might be the small, simple organization of institutions and laws that places the rights of citizens above it.
