Yep, they seem to think it is their job to make stuff up.

I keep reminding all the legislators I can get to listen, it ain’t their job to pass laws.

Some might ask, “Well, what else would they do?” To which I would like to say nothing, but that isn’t quite true.

They need to represent us in running the business of the government. Making more rules for lording over us is not the business of the government. They need to represent and ensure as little of our money is taken from us as possible. They need to represent us and ensure as little of our money is wasted as possible. They need to represent us and ensure the government isn’t trying to do anything they shouldn’t be doing.

They need to acknowledge that government is violence. They need to acknowledge that unless what is being discussed needs the official sanction of societal threat of violence, then they ought not be doing it.
