You never know…

The thing that really scares me about electing a new president is that they become so insulated once they get into office. It really starts to feel to me like many of those who have political aspirations seem to forget that they are public servants as much as they are self servants. As a public servant, that means that EVERYONE’s opinion has to be taken into account. Everyone matters.

The next public program our government decides to cut could effect the family who has the kid that might someday figure out the best gene therapy to stop Alzheimer’s or invent the next semi-conductor that reduces resistance on power lines and saves the country trillions of dollars in lost energy costs.

Every human being born in this country has the potential to do something amazing with their life, regardless of the social circumstances they are born into. When our government discounts someone’s worth because they can’t be pigeon holed into a desired demographic, they do the entire country a great disservice. Instead of lowering our expectations of people based on their lack of privilege, we should elevate our expectations of all of our citizens and instill in them the possibilities for greatness. Only then can we rise above the quagmire of infighting and placing blame, and finally solve real problems.

If a corporation is indeed a person, as the supreme court deemed true, than it is a greedy, callous, selfish person, and our country should not be run like one.

Don’t forget, you can’t bitch if you don’t vote. Just sayin’ in my gripish fashion.
