The ol’ federal bus doesn’t move very well. The clutch is totally blown because legislators become more and more bound up in polarization, some want to shift gears, some don’t. Unengaged, the bus drifts down the road in neutral, ever slowing; other national buses rush by at the speed limit. Adding insult to injury, the gear box is a skip and miss experience even if the clutch worked.
Each gear tooth, a principled thrust applying torque to society, is bent, missing or warped. If the clutch worked, if the gear box worked, the bus at best would stutter and jump down the highway.
The sparkplugs, a vibrant electorate spark of energy and focus, are old and misfire, not knowing exactly when or even why they should energize their respective pistons.
The carburetor, instead of measuring and controlling the cash flow, leaks profusely, placing the whole bus in peril as hot spots grow and may combust even as the pistons run lean.
So it’s time to take the ol’ bus to the repair garage. A lot of work needs to be done:
The camshaft, sometimes called the Electoral College, causes misfiring. A better grease called National Public Vote (NPV) needs to be applied to restore smooth synchronization.
The valves are worn and should be replaced with newer, unified roles for state voting.
The clutch should be rebuilt with non-binding redistricting.
The entire transmission must be rebuilt with properly applied representation that synchronizes legislative energy with the sparkplugs.
Looking at the bus, many seats are missing and torn; there aren’t enough seats for every kind of rider that wants to go home.
No question new tires are needed that understand the meaning of “where the rubber meets the road.”
The repair had better be sound and functional; the storms of global warming are just down the road.
