RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I like to see compromise from my elected officials in some areas because it shows progress and teamwork, but when it comes to human rights, I would really like to see them make a stand. For example the right for gays to marry, the right to have an abortion, the right to an education, and the right to healthcare for all.
The compromise that makes me the most frustrated is how much polictians compromise their communication to voters. It's very hard for the average person to really understand what is going on right now. Currently the conversation is about the people who make $250,000 or more. This is such a minority in our society, I wish these decisions were expressed with more transparency. Voters need to know what their elected officials are actually doing for them, or in this case, against them unless they are in the small 250K minority.
