Sights and Sounds: Indianapolis
Wake up America: I think a very important thing we have lost sight of, is the fact that elected officials from the smallest village to the president are supposed to be representatives of the people of this nation, period. Somewhere we have lost direction on this. Now, the news media and career politicians have convinced us that our elected officials must be "experienced". But what does that mean? In the general public's mind, experience would be ability to do the job. But, in the political realm, experience means: connected, part of the clique, one who won't upset the apple cart. As Americans, whether you are liberal, conservative, libertarian or whatever, we must stop listening to divisive propaganda, be independent and independent minded enough to think for ourselves, work together to accomplish great things, be respectful of others regardless of their beliefs as long as the others do no harm, and do no harm to others, and look to and aspire for the common good with common sense. We are what makes America great. We merely have to live up to our standards.
