As I am involved in a commercial venture with similar address and am still the faithless preacher I've always been, I have been asking a single question of our newly self acclaimed "Reform" Party.
One Response to “The 912 Project”
“The government, made up of our elected representatives, the people we chose to represent our interests in Washington, D.C., and our various state and local government centers, has become a political machine operating on the principal that if something is popular, then it’s OK. This “government by popularity poll” has gotten us into the mess we’re in today, and doesn’t seem capable of getting us out of it.”
Not trying to split hairs here… but the popularity debacle of which you speak is called “democracy” in lay man’s terms. The Greeks experimented with it a few thousand years ago and discarded it as a valid form of government once they realized that; “Given the opportunity, the empowered people would invariably vote to give themselves the sum of the treasury.”
That being said.. and of course, being evidenced by recent events… What do you suggest as a solution? I am sincerely interested in your answer and am not here facetiously.
I anxiously await your response.
Side note... As was once told to me by a wise man....
"It is easy to start a reform movement. Everything sucks. No one likes that. Point out the vague negative effects of which the majority believe they are experiencing and you can hook them all in the short term. In the long term you fail, because wiser men than me have been trying, in vain, to solve those problems since the beginning of human history. Yeah, its all fucked up.
We know that. We just don't know how to fix it." -Lee Fuller (R) Texas
