Victory is Just a Step Away

Political Angle by Ryan Steffy

As I sit here today listening to Nirvana, one of the greatest Grunge bands ever, I begin to understand that this country needs a lot of changing. We need to become more knowledgeable not only of ourselves but of others. We also need to become more of a society that is better prepared for world disaster. With each passing moment that we lose we become susceptible to new threats such as: economic, terrorist, and other threats.

How do we go about solving these crisis' and how do we come up with a solution? First, what we need to do is regulate, regulate, regulate. I believe wholeheartedly in regulation because it will not only strengthen but utilize all the advantages of a strong state and federal government. Secondly, what we need to do is to come up with simple ideas rather than ideas that are so complex that it will burden us with drawbacks. For instance solving something as huge as healthcare with one fall swoop is not the answer. I look towards the greatest presidents of the past like Teddy Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln who were able to accomplish things by taking it step by step.

Next, what we have to realize is that a solution will not come right away if that solution is the right solution. It always takes awhile for solutions just to come around the corner. I believe that if people begin to have more faith and become more voter-conscious the government will begin to change for the better.

Let us not bury the government like Antony alluded to in Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar. But let us rise to the occasion and become better citizens so we can help the government rise and win.

This is another example of
uninformed and misinformed voters and legislators,
who cause unintended consequences
for current and future generations,
from government over-regulation and over-spending.

Governments need to CUT spending and debt.
