The drama in Washington persists in hurting my head. The moral high ground is being staked out by representatives who are paining themselves to "vote their conscience". I weep tears of blood for them, but wait a minute...If I am elected (hired) to represent the folks back home, then have I not in a sense hired out my conscience? Put another way, if I am elected to represent the home-folks, is their will not therefore my conscience?
A hireling is a hireling, and must do the will of his masters.
