Governmenting is hard work. Representing hundreds of thousands of people can’t be easy, what with those unwashed masses demanding ‘accountability’ and ‘doing your job’. Sometimes, what that job is might slip a representative’s mind. So, this Valentine’s Day, show you appreciate your U.S. Representative (or closest Republican rep) by sending them a gift. Here’s a suggestion:
All Representatives are sworn in, affirming that they “will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same,” but maybe they don’t remember what that entails, or maybe they just haven’t read it. So get them a copy. It’s not an expensive gift (only $1.00 on Amazon!), but it’s the thought that counts. And don’t worry, I’m sure that if someone else decides to also get a copy for them, they have a few hundred staffers who could also use a copy, so don’t worry about duplicates.
