Video: 3 Politicians Say Things That Are So Out of Touch It Hurts May 21, 2018

Federal politicians don’t understand the average American citizen. Most of the time they manage to hide their ignorance, but sometimes they can’t help but show how tone-deaf they really are.

First up, a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee ad that accuses a GOP candidate of raising taxes and energy costs. The Dems probably should have looked in the mirror before running this spot.

Next, Sen. Elizabeth Warren claims that President Donald Trump’s 2016 election win was a sign of an unhealthy democracy because he didn’t win the popular vote.

If we lived in a democracy, she’s right, that would be a problem. Unfortunately for Warren, the United States isn’t a democracy — it’s a constitutional republic.

Finally, Sen. Cory Booker claims that he tries to understand “other folks” by reading books like Hillbilly Elegy and traveling to midwestern, southern, and western states.

Sorry, Sen. Booker. If you want to connect with everyday Americans, you probably shouldn’t talk about them like they’re animals in a zoo.

It’s time to take power away from these D.C. swamp monsters and return it to the states and the people. The states and the people best understand how to solve the problems facing their local communities. Far-away politicians and bureaucrats clearly have no idea what everyday Americans are thinking and feeling, which is why they so often make such terrible decisions.

That’s why we need to call the first-ever Article V Convention of States. A Convention of States can propose constitutional amendments that restore the balance of power between the states and the feds and ensure that our clueless D.C. “representatives” can’t wreck our country any more than they already have.
