Next time someone tells you that all politicians are liars, introduce them to State Representative Karl Oliver of Mississippi.
Voter Becky Guidry of Gulfport emailed this freshman politician, complaining about the legislature’s planned tax and budget cuts. Becky was disgusted at the thought that Mississippians should have the right to keep more of what they earn. No surprise, Becky had recently moved to Mississippi from socialist-friendly Illinois.
Which is why Rep. Oliver decided to teach her a little bit about the history and culture of his state:
“I normally don’t return emails that do not request a response,” emailed the politician, “but I found yours so intriguing I simply felt led to respond. I see you are not a native to the Great State of Mississippi nor do you and I have similar political views. The people of our Great State overwhelmingly share my same or similar views on Government responsibility. I appreciate you going to the trouble to share yours with me, but quite frankly, and with all due respect, I could care less. I would, however, recommend that there are a rather large number of like minded citizens in Illinois that would love to see you return.”
Needless to say, the original complainant, and the liberal media, are attacking Oliver for his honesty. These same folks also attack politicians for being dishonest.
Guess they just want to be told what they want to hear.
