Government is a big fat private equity/venture capital firm backed up by guns with cash to spend. Georgia’s Fifth District needs a congressional rep that can not only divert as much cash to the district in the form of grants, business loans, subsidized health, but spends every waking minute creating new pools of capital via legislation and sending that money home.
This representative should also be aggressive in recruiting or assisting in the creation of Afro-owned enterprises that can provide value in a 21st century digital economy. Many, particularly those living in the 30310 zip code, would like the opportunity to live and work in their portion of the district versus having to commute across town for work. Other taxpayers in the more affluent sections of the Fifth District are enjoying this privilege.
Democracy as a concept is being laughed at around the globe and rightfully so because it is accompanied by a disparity in the allocation of capital. Capital must be the first word spilling off the lips of any congressman representing poor people. There is now an opportunity for the Fifth District to seek out a candidate that can shake things up.
Politics is a blood sport. There is no time for weeping for fallen warriors and the tired horses they rode on….
Georgia’s Fifth Congressional District needs new blood …
