Where did common sense go?
Written by Gary Wonning
Often times matters of extreme importance are clouded by politics and once that process begins, regardless of the issue and it’s importance, half of the population will be against any change only because it has been taken up as a banner of a political party.
Climate change or global warming is a prime example.
Before the year 2000, everyone was on board, and still are about our concerns about the environment. In fact many strides had been made making our environment cleaner than it has been for years.
But, once it became a political football in the year 2000, and if you disagreed with the prognosis of certain politicians you were automatically deemed ignorant, ill informed and politically incorrect, it instantaneously annihilated half the population of the United States, once that half becam indignant, the other half followed suit.
Since that period of time, almost nothing has been done except hurl brickbats at those with an opposing view.
How much better it was before this came about.
So it is with many of our other social issues, when the people decide for themselves, without the interference of political parties, much better results can be obtained.
The American people are intelligent enough, both sides of the political spectrum, to decide right from wrong. Once politicians and the media gets involved, all bets are off.
The same goes for all our other issues, racial, sexual, economic, etc.
Unless politicians have been involved in the private sector, the only skill they have is getting reelected.
They know nothing concerning how the world operates.
It’s time they begin assuming the roles they were destined to follow, the roles designed by our founding fathers.
They are our representatives in government, not our leaders.
We, the people, in America, are our own leaders.
We can be quite good at it if left alone by big brother.
