Let the “move to the middle” begin

Saturday, February 26th, 2011

Everyone is moving to the middle.  Politicians everywhere of every shape and form are once again interested in what you think and believe.  Where was the concern 6 months ago, not to mention 2 years ago?  What caused the need to move back to the point that “real” Americans could relate?  I have an idea.  Why do we not look for people who are so grounded in their convictions and principles that they never need to “move back to the middle”.  Many of us still respect COMMITMENT.

Leadership vs. Politics

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

Whomever is elected to be the next President of the United States of America cannot be elected as a package of expertise.   The fact is that there is no such candidate.  America must seek leadership rather than presumed expertise and political experience.  Leadership is not born within an understanding of the inner workings of government.  Leadership is born of clear conviction and understanding.  Consider those men which have been held in high esteem within this nation:  Washington, Jefferson, Adams, and Lincoln.  Those men are considered great today not because they understood how politics functioned but rather because they each possessed a clear vision of what America should be and what role government should play in the lives of free citizens.  By today’s standards each would be considered very poor and unlikely candidates for office.
