We did not just crawl out of a cave. We know what works based
on experience. Why must we constantly fight the same battles over and over?
Our politics and even our spiritual lives too often resemble the film Groundhog Day in which actor Bill Murray wakes up and repeats the
same event again and again and nothing ever changes. Why don’t we consult the
past and common sense in order to see that what others discovered still works.
Wisdom existed before the Internet and other forms of mass communication.
Today, we have more information than ever, but less wisdom; more talk, but less
listening; more things in the superficial showroom and less in the intellectual
storeroom. We know what works—historically and instinctively—but
politics and ignorance too often get in the way.
Instead of the constant jockeying for political advantage,
suppose we start focusing on what promotes the general welfare, regardless of
which party or ideology gets the credit. It's amazing what problems can be
solved if solutions, not partisan gain, become the goal. The American public is
being “gamed” by politicians, the big media and other “elites,” whose main
interest centers on themselves. When was the last time you read a news story about
anyone pursuing, much less achieving, a solution to any major problem? This
book is about solutions, not theories or an attempt to gain political
advantage. It’s about pressuring our political leadership to forget about the
next election and start focusing on the needs of the people who work hard to
provide for themselves, send their tax dollars to Washington, and want to see
the country achieve something of value as it has always done. How about
abandoning things that don’t work and start focusing on what does work? The alternative
is more of the past. Download and start listening now!
