9-11 or 9-12; 11-2 or 11-3
This is the 912 project because the focus was the uniting feeling we all had the day after. Coming together as a nation in the face of tragedy. The shock and horror of the attacks on New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington was an attack on all Americans irregardless of your skin color, religion, financial status or political belief. People started to go to churches again and to pray. People started to pay attention to their neighbors again; we had an increase in Neighborhood watches and gun sales. People started talking to each other and paying attention.
People focused on the problems not the symptoms.
Now we are faced with an election that may change the face of American politics for many years; but what are we now focused on? The symptoms or the problem? Is the problem Democrats in power, or corrupt politicians in power? Is the problem taxes and spending or are those the symptoms?
An attitude of throw the bums out is fine; as long as we do not replace them with new Bums. A Witch VS. a Communist (DE). Taliban Dan VS. a Satanist (FL). A rich power hungry woman that cares nothing for the people VS an ageing Hippy lost in the 70’s (CA). An Idiot Failure VS a Corrupt Bankrupt failure (GA). At least this is the choices presented us by the political ads and the press.
But what are the Issues? Where do they stand on the important things that affect our lives? How do we get past the personal attacks and find out the truth of what they stand for?
Most everyone believes that on November 2nd the Republicans will take back power. So what happens on November 3rd?
Just my thoughts for today.
