Most all talk in the shop this week was about politicians and how much we all think, or know, they are crooked, self-centered, selfish, uncaring ego maniacs who really are bigger crooks than Al Capone or any gangster. Is there nobody out there with some moral fiber and who cares more about America and its people than how much power and money they can build for themselves and their friends? Someone who will stand up for how this country was built and pay attention to our history on what works and what doesn’t? Someone who will spit in the face of a bribe or lobbyist and do what’s best for the masses? Who will stand up for term limits and monitor the bank accounts of public servants while changing our process that is failing miserably? Who can look in the camera and say an honest, “Yes, I did that when I was young. It was stupid, and I have made restitution for it.”
Someone who holds God, family and country more sacred than money? If you’re a politician or just a regular John Smith, the answer is simple – it’s called the Golden Rule. Treat others as you want to be treated. If everyone would just follow that rule over all others, then everyone wins. It’s deep and it’s simple … Problem solved.
