The Tao of Politics

One of my main concerns is: how can I make a difference? There are thousands of political blogs out there. It’s easy to get lost in that ocean. So I may blog about politics on occasion, or I may blog about health issues, depending on where my interests lead me, and where I feel I can contribute something of significance.

A Few Ideas

In thinking about the important issues of today I came up with the following, for starters:

1) If we create a problem, then we have a duty to fix it. This goes for the situation in Iraq, of course, but also applies, I think, to issues like homelessness, racial inequality, etc.

2) A President should not favor one group of citizens over another. He should not favor, for example, the top one percent of the wealthy. He was elected to be President of all the people, not just of a privileged few.

3) a. The present administration in Washington is good at Politics but not good at Government.

b. Government should be about truth. Politics is largely about deception and lies.

c. A crisis of trust exists between the American people and the administration of George W. Bush. The people have difficulty believing this administration.
