Governing This Country

I voted for Barack Obama.  But had Obama lost to John McCain I would not have lost any sleep worrying about this country’s future.  McCain is highly intelligent, morally sound and a person of good judgment who would have been an effective and productive president even if he and I differed on the importance of some issues or how policy was put into effect to deal with those issues.

I look at people like Sarah Palin and Sharron Angle.  Palin was a heartbeat away from the presidency had McCain been elected, and Angle would have taken the place of Nevada’s powerful and sound thinking U.S. Senator.  Those possibilities should make every one of you shudder – and if this doesn’t make you shudder, you ought to rethink your approach to governing this country.

  1. My preferred approach to governing this country is LESS governing!
    With over 25 million bureaucrats and government workers, at all levels and with over 500,000 elected "officials" and the associated costs for them all, you'd think we would be living in utopia.
    We're not. Since bigger is NOT better, why not try down sizing?
    What ever happened to FREEDOM?
