Have you ever noticed how certain politicians use the phrase “The American People want…” as a virtual mantra, without ever specifying any figures to back up the statement? You watch. When you hear that phrase, it’s always in a context where someone wants to give an idea weight, but doesn’t have (or want to show) the figures.
Well, y’know what? Some of my ancestors go back to the 17th Century in “America,” and others were here to meet the boat. I’m without question an American person, and I resent being lumped into a bunch of sloppy statistics to make questionable statements look more valid.
