Monday, after the House of Representatives voted down the House Economic Rescue Bill, and as the stock market was in free-fall some 777 points, I was talking with some associates. Several individuals asked the question…HOW DID IT HAPPEN?
My response was simple, and quick. We are in our current critical economic malaise, because of lies, misdirection, deceit, financial malfeasance, greed, deception, favoritism, criminal acts, insider dealing, inadequate over-sight, arrogance, and political partisanship. Our Washington elected politicians are all running for cover, and typically pointing fingers in every direction except at themselves.
To my assembled group, I suggested that this was a perfect time for all Americans, and especially all elected officials, to re-read the Declaration of Independence, our Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. These precious documents can again be our foundation and guide to steering the proper course of action in the coming weeks.
Additionally, and this will drive the ACLU crazy, I suggest every Washington politician, appointed official, and voting citizen read: THE TEN COMMANDMENTS.
1. Do not worship other gods.
2. Do not worship idols.
3. Do not misuse God’s name.
4. Keep the Sabbath holy.
5. Honor your father & mother.
6. Do not murder.
7. Do not commit adultery.
8. Do not steal.
9. Do not lie.
10. Do not covet.
My simple suggestions should get Washington back on track to resolving America’s biggest pressing issues and problems.
