This isn’t a post for Rs or Ds as I hear them often referred, it is an appeal to common sense. I have listened and will continue to listen to the debates and speeches that will determine a winner or loser in November’s election. Ahh, the American political process . . .
Winner doesn’t mean improvement.
The next bright idea is just that – an idea. Political ideology fills the air with more emotion than sense. Scrap medicare, keep medicare, privatize or grow government all have been debated and spoken about by political pundits the world over.
Nothing has improved.
The ideologies to bring wealth and prosperity to the USA have failed us all. There is a need to turn to a method based on evidence rather than conjecture and hope. No political party has a complete success story. The spin is more important than the evidence.
Where do we go from here?
We need for the folks in government that have method to improve it. I have heard during this weeks speeches how NASA was a highly motivated entity in its pursuit of the moon. It just didn’t end with NASA, the whole government was very focused on purpose.
We need this to happen now.
Further, we need method to improve based in knowledge and evidence, not pixie dust and wishes. This would end the ideological divide that separates this nation.
Condi Rice is right in one sense, “No country, no, not even China can do more harm to us than we can do to ourselves . . .”
