Political Chips - Statesman Vs Politician - Quiz


Hi Folks, my name is Chipper Jones! If you are interested in running for public office or curious to know the secret to being a Statesman versus a Politician, I can teach you in 5 minutes or less! All you have to do is master the following concepts and you can handle anything and anyone that comes at you!


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    All publicly elected officials, independent of political party, are responsible for diligently serving one specific group.   Who is the group?   

    • A.

      Their constituents

    • B.

      The individuals and groups who donated to their campaign

    • C.

      The legal taxpaying American citizen

    • D.

      Party leadership

    Correct Answer
    C. The legal taxpaying American citizen
    Explanation
    Most public servants answer this question incorrectly! Constituents are merely the specific voters eligible to cast a vote for them based upon residential zip code. However, most elected officials make decisions and cast policy votes that affect everyone inside and outside their "district". We believe all publicly elected officials have a duty to protect and serve the legal taxpaying American citizen.

    In reality, too many elected officials compromise their principles and cater to the individuals and groups who have financed their election campaigns. Once elected, many public servants turn their backs on the taxpayer while taking marching orders from party bosses and party leadership.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Independent of political party, what is the first thing that EVERY elected official does on day number one prior to serving the legal American taxpaying citizen?    

    • A.

      Organize their legislative agenda

    • B.

      Meet with party bosses and elect positions of leadership

    • C.

      Apply for committees they may be interested in serving on

    • D.

      Take an oath

    Correct Answer
    D. Take an oath
    Explanation
    All elected officials, with God as their witness, raise their right hand and take an oath to defend the Constitution.

    Now, with that said, a bona-fide Statesman like Chipper Jones would not only take the oath seriously, he would demonstrate on a daily basis the following:
    1. He would aggressively defend the Constitution;
    2. He would vigorously defend the Bill of Rights against any and all attacks by individuals seeking to dilute these rights for any reason including those attempting to control us.
    3. He would stand tall on principle, independent of political party, party leadership, lobbying group, or any other special interest.

    Politics is a very diversified and broad field covering a wide range of topics, issues, and problems facing all levels of Government.   No candidate or publicly elected official should be expected to be an expert in every single area or subject matter.  However, every single candidate or elected official should have a solid grasp or understanding of taxes, taxation, and the tax system!  

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Nearly every single topic or area of study in politics (ie education, immigration, health, life, energy, etc.) comes in direct or indirect contact with the areas of tax, taxation, and the tax system. Candidates and elected officials must have a basic understanding of the differences between taxes (the gold coins in the bucket) and taxation (the method of collecting the gold coins). They must have an understanding of the tax system and knowledge that a system that taxes consumption versus production has been proven to be much more effective and beneficial. If they do not have this general knowledge, they will be unable to identify, detect, and discern between good and the systemic evil perpetuated by the current tax system that picks winners & losers, penalizes production, and fuels corruption in politics.

    All elected officials, independent of political party, are required to cast public policy votes affecting legal taxpaying American citizens residing inside and outside their districts.  What is the best process for determining whether or not to vote yea or nay on any particular issue?  

    • A.

      Take a poll of your constituents and vote with the majority

    • B.

      Listen carefully to the opinions of your largest campaign contributors

    • C.

      Discuss pros and cons of voting each way with party leadership

    • D.

      Personally evaluate subject matter in conjunction with your moral conscience, your constitutional assessment, your duty to the legal American taxpayer, and evaluation of whether or not the taxpayers really need or want this legislation.

    Correct Answer
    D. Personally evaluate subject matter in conjunction with your moral conscience, your constitutional assessment, your duty to the legal American taxpayer, and evaluation of whether or not the taxpayers really need or want this legislation.
    Explanation
    John Quincy Adams famously stated "Always stand on principle even if it means standing alone". It's amazing to listen to politicians trying to explain why they voted one way or another. A Kansas Senator recently explained to fellow legal taxpaying American citizens of Kansas that he voted "yes" on a controversial bill because it was good for Kansas Farmers. Well, which Kansas farmers are we speaking of? There are conservative farmers, liberal farmers, corporate farmers, and everything in between. A better thought process for the KS Senator would have been to explain that he felt the decision was moral, constitutional, affordable, and necessary in their opinion. Although many conservatives disagreed with this controversial vote, we would respect his decision if we felt he had stood up on his principles versus making a political calculation.
