And the Government Spasms

The current budget battle hides the deeper problems in America right now. 

The failure to prepare a budget annually is evidence that our elected officials do not know how to do the one job we elected them to do: govern the country.

We the people have elected too many single issue representatives and they do not posses a good understanding that the most important thing we elected them to do is ensure that America is strong and well cared for.

Single issue representatives apparently do not understand the art of compromise to achieve long-term goals. They are looking for quick wins and constant success--but the success they seek is to often personal and not tied to the wider successes won from sound fiscal, domestic, and foreign policies.

Just because they represent different parties does not mean that their goals should be different, only that their means may differ.

How weird that the current explosive issue is about immigration--here's a thought, almost all of us are immigrants. 

We leaders who can focus on the strengths and similarities and not the divisive differences.

Let's move into the future!
