Why has our life become confrontational? Conflict can lead to Solutions, so do “good” policy decisions. A thoughtful way, that requires no conflict, merely a clearly stated set of goals.
Do we want war or Peace? If we want Peace , why not acknowledge our adversaries and determine where we can achieve Common Ground. War should be a last resort. Targeted missions make the most sense along with Nation Building.
Same for Affordable Healthcare Care. We want affordable healthcare. Ideally National Healthcare, if not, we have to work with Insurance Companies , drug companies, the physicians and hospitals to achieve the best quality of care at the lowest cost. That doesn’t mean the least care at the lowest cost any Moron can achieve that! “We the people” require a large marketplace , to pay costs forward and more competitive choices to lower costs. The most cost effective healthcare would be expanded Medicare to those 55 yrs and up with phase ins of the rest of the population within 10 yrs.
Why have conflicts over deficit reduction? An artificial cap serves no purpose. Instead we should be generating revenue and thinking about debt reduction policy. Debt is a function of revenue. Create revenue and reduce deficits by a finite amount every 2 yrs. to an agreed upon minimum. In times of crisis, expect deficits to increase temporarily.
I too have fallen into the conflict trap. I’m mad as hell that Obama was denied his Supreme Court choice. Yet, he didn’t act by whim, he waited for Congress. The same should be true for Trump. The ethics office should know about his Conflicts of interest and his waivers. Visitor logs should be transparent. No Lobbyists should be in government period. We are a Nation of laws. Let’s remember to exercise our rights.
Enough is enough. This is a government run amok. Let’s you and me be disruptive in a good way. See you at 11am and we’ll discus.
