Defund the politicians. Here’s what it means?
We’ve been familiar with the slogan “defund the police”. As you might know, the phrase “Defund the police” originated from Black Lives Matter protests across America and nationwide protests demanding reform following the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and others at the hands of police.
Basically, “defund the police” means reallocating money from the policing to other agencies funded by the local municipalities. Instead of funding police, a large portion of the city’s budget is invested in communities, particularly marginalized communities, where a lot of policing happens.
However, it’s totally a new term when talking about “defund politicians”. What is “defund the politicians”?
Defund means prevent from continuing to receive funds. So, defund politicians means to advocate divesting funds from the government and reallocating them to non-governmental organizations such as social services, youth services, housing, education, healthcare, and other community resources.
Defund the politicians means a lot to many people!
Why Defund The Politicians?
When it comes to politics, there are various issues that people want to discuss and show their opinions about.
Politics are complicated and macro because it’s involved in activities associated with the governance of a country or another area, or it is related to activities of governments concerning the political relations between countries. Whether people are happy and satisfied with the present Political institutions or not?
People – who care about politics and political issues, often care about Politicians who often promise to solve all a country’s problems at a stroke. However, under the control of multiple political parties, two of them are Republicans and Democrats, people still have to face up with a lot of social issues happening day by day, to name but a few: racism, riot, refugee, migrants, etc.
When we need the politicians’ action, where are they?
It’s true that the reputation of politicians is very poor. To be fair, this is largely their own fault but not all politicians are like this. Politicians set a bad policy. They’re terrible people. They’re weak and unsuited to lead our country.
The most outstanding and latest example is President Joe Biden. His withdrawal of U.S troops in Afghanistan left a terrible result. 13 American soldiers were killed and injured dozens of others in a suicide attack on August 26, and many American civilians were left in Afghanistan. They strived to flee the country hopelessly. Not to mention that a lot of equipment including 73 US military aircraft, and approximately U.S. military 100 vehicles were left for the Taliban.
Biden’s failure in Afghanistan makes America look both faithless and stupid in the eyes of other countries. Where are politicians? They’re not ashamed at all for the death of American soldiers in Afghanistan, because they’ve forgotten how to be. Politicians always cast blame or meander toward an excuse for their mistakes.
Moreover, Biden’s disastrous border policy has made a bad situation on the border and affected Americans directly. The policy has turned America to be a place offering free food, free shelter, and free medical care for those who illegally enter America. There is no longer “America First”. Now, it’s “America Last”.
Joe Biden is redirecting tax dollars to the benefit of illegal immigrants while American citizens, particularly military veterans, cannot get the medical and psychological services they need and have earned. Why did politicians not fight for the benefit of Americans?
What did politicians and political parties do in combating racism?
George Floyd’s death at the hands of police shows that long-standing racial inequity in every aspect of American life. Politicians claim to combat systemic racism. But there are a lot of racism cases happening daily in the U.S.
Do you remember the last words of George Floyd? “I can’t breathe”. That sounds heartbroken. These words were uttered six years earlier before he was choked to death by another white police officer in New York City in 2020.
The profound racial and ethnic inequalities that exist today are a direct result of structural racism: historical and contemporary policies, practices, and norms create and perpetuate white supremacy.
We need to reform the political system substantially in order to save it. If we do not, the system itself is in danger of collapse and something very terrible may happen!
What did people say about politicians?
“Look what they’ve done with Social Security, the dumb attempts at a national health bill, the arrogance of Big Pharma, the regulations forcing banks to make balloon loans to people who were bound to fail to make, the recent stupid wars we kill our young in, our infrastructure, the wasted spending of our tax dollars, Our national debt, and on and on. If this isn’t a good enough reason for calling many politicians useless, I don’t know what is!”
“Democratic…. Chuck Schumer! He is as fake as fake gets. His care of an issue waxes and wanes like the breeze. His words are gobs of sticky gooey nothingness. He has been on the losing side way too many times.”
“Probably your local mayor, or your state representatives. These guys only count voters to stay in office, and seldom do anything really helpful or bold.”
