You appear to be exercising your constitutional right to demand the constitutional rights of the people you allege to represent.

A lot of people demanding their rights these days.

Few, however, mention how well (or not) they are addressing the social responsibilities that come with having these rights, liberties and freedoms.

Let’s do a quick litmus test to determine how well you’re doing, shall we?

Do you pay income and other taxes honestly, and on time, to federal, state, and local authorities.?

Are you following the laws of the land? Encouraging others to follow the law?

Have you been called for jury duty and did you serve it? Have you been called as a witness and truthfully testified accordingly?

Do you fully exercise the right to vote, at all the relevant political levels?

Do you have the means to care for yourself (and children, if applicable) without consistently relying on government programs for help — e.g., if needed, only using it as a short-term hand up rather than a long-term hand out?

Fulfilling social responsibilities such as these is just as important as demanding one’s rights. It works much like a balance sheet for an accounting ledger.

Where do you stand with respect to this concept?

And how well are the people you allegedly represent doing with regard to this concept?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
