STATION EDITORIAL

Posted July 13, 2021

 

This is a station editorial, I'm Randal J. Miller, station president.

There's a motto I learned as a child:  Fool me once, shame on you...fool me twice, shame on me.

You may remember in my editorials last year during the COVID pandemic, that I stated when politicians take more power or control, whether they're Democrats or Republicans, it's difficult for them to let go.

Here we are weeks away from school starting, fall coming, and the time of year we begin to see flu cases go up.

Only, in this case, the Delta COVID variant is rearing its ugly head.

I would remind any politician that hears or reads this editorial, that many people perceived that you took too much control last year in the midst of the pandemic, shutting down the economy, costing millions of jobs, not to mention shutting down the government that is supposed to serve all of us.

If any of these politicians think we have short memories, I hope they think again.

The electorate has a very unique and democratic way of expressing their approval or disapproval of their elected officials.  It's called the ballot box, and the 2022 elections aren't that far away, despite attempts in Illinois to postpone the Illinois primary to June because they claim they're waiting on Census data.

Fool me once, shame on you.  Fool me twice, shame on me.  

Remember who has the ultimate control of our lives.  We do.  We live in a free country, last I knew, and we can make our own decisions, good or bad, in how we live our lives.

Unless politicians who want to keep control, think otherwise.

That's our opinion, we welcome yours.  Our e-mail address is editorial@randyradio.com.
