In the wake of George Floyd’s death, on May 25th in Minneapolis, there have been various proposals to defund the police departments in some of the more liberal bastions of America. The first one that comes to mind is in the City of Minneapolis itself. Minneapolis is being promoted as a “proving ground” for this exercise in applied lunacy. Part of the push in Minneapolis comes from their Congressional Representative, Ilhan Omar.
Considering the efforts by some of our more systemically liberal districts to defund our police, I propose a better solution; we should consider defunding Congress, both Houses. To be fair, in defense of America’s Police Force, I would conservatively say that 90% of our Police Men and Women are decent people doing an infinitely difficult job and doing it well.
