Name a successful company that has two mission statements? A successful company or organization moves or fights for the same goals. Our U.S. government has at least two obvious conflicting agendas with any decision. Ultimately, the direction of our country is a constant tug-o-war.
Our country is fixated that you have to be a Republican, a Democrat, or a wasted vote as an Independent. I don’t want to be labeled politically because it makes no sense.
There is no magical political philosophy that fixes every problem or runs at 100% efficiency. There never has been.
When our government addresses any issue, they can’t get a running start because they’re in a hole with the other party trying to bury them. Someone could have a great idea but if they’re a Democrat or a Republican then it isn’t happening, at least not without a huge costly fight.
Because of this fight, we usually end up with a lesser version of the original fix or idea. These lesser versions are inefficient, poorly implemented, and eventually changed again in the near future. That is costly.
We fight because our parties or fraternity tell us to fight. We’re members of their club. We even have our own mascots. But to keep our membership, we are ignorant, stubborn, and blind to other people’s needs.
What if we elected the best people into office with no political titles? Not labeled as Republican or a Democrat, just a guy or gal with a first and last name. Now this person doesn’t have the weight or political commitment on their shoulders. Now this person can act based on their best judgment.
Sometimes their decision will fall towards the left, and sometimes to the right. The best solution for the issue at hand would dictate that.
Having no accountability or debt to a party increases the politician’s commitment to the people as a whole, not just to their party.It allows our elected members to use their whole brain.
I know I’m dreaming, but why do my dreams make more sense than our politics?
Make it a good day,
