A colleague pointed out to me where I could send my suggestions to Nikki’s “Fiscal Crisis Task Force.” So I went there, and right above the form, I saw this quote:
“This movement was never meant to be about a person.
It was never meant to be about an election.
This movement was about how we take our state and country back.”
Governor-elect Nikki Haley on election night
That immediately chased any suggestions I might have out of my mind, so instead of suggesting, I sent a question:
Who are we taking our state and country back from again? I’m still confused on that point…
Knowing the answer to THAT would help me know what to say.
My second favorite thing about this page was:
We need your help in reforming our state government.
Please send us suggestions below. We’d love to hear from you.
Really? You mean, you don’t know what needs doing, or how to go about it? And you think asking the average guy out there is the way to figure this out? I mean, I knew you’d gone populist, but really — have you ever gone out and conducted actual man-on-the-street interviews? I have. Do it once, and it will cure you of your delusions forever.
