I’m OK with Self Critical, but Come On!

by on Dec.18, 2014, under Uncategorized

Be reasonable. It’s OK to recognize your mistakes and fix them. That’s a good thing. Both for individuals and all the way up to a nation in general. But this country seems to have gone way overboard. Everything is wrong with the U.S. There are those who would have you believe that everything wrong in the world is America’s fault, too. Don’t sucker for that. It simply isn’t true. In the big picture, we have a very great deal to be proud of, both for how we’ve done internally and for how much we help the world. People flock here for a reason. Actually, for lots of reasons.

If too many of us let ourselves get sucked into the America Sucks rhetoric, we’re toast.

Are There Brownie Points for Being “Right” ?

by on Dec.17, 2014, under Uncategorized

I often find myself wondering if any of it matters. To me. In the long run. Is there a prize at the end, given out by some one or some thing that knows all, for having pushed the right messages all my life? How about for being right more than half the time?

Is there an all-knowing, all-seeing being to whom I must ultimately answer that knows what all the right moves should have been? Does liberty and freedom and small government lead to a better world in 2515 than would big government and socialism?

What I really wonder is whether my wildly liberal/socialist friends and family members will get smacked down at the pearly gates.

What’s the point of playing politics if you never find out, definitively, who won? And by win, I mean moved the world in directions that led to the greatest amount of good for the greatest number of people.

Will I ever enter the promised land? Wait, I know how that turned out for Moses…
