To lead people, walk beside them ... As for best leaders, people do not notice their existence. The next best, people honor and praise. The next, people fear; and next, people hate ... When best leader's work is done people say, "We did it ourselves!" - Lao-Tzu
I’ve just about had it with all talk surrounding this past election. Look, I’m sorry that people were disenfranchised in Ohio but concentrating on and putting so many resources into problems there is like Republican perpetuated myth of people cheating welfare system. Do people steal from welfare system? You bet they do, but directors of corporations have stolen a hell of lot of money from people and no one is calling for dissolution of corporation. The welfare system effects you financially less than 1 flush of your toilet bowl per year and that’s about same effect that “irregularities” in Ohio have had on overall election.
The election is over. The person you voted for lost. Republicans did cheat, that’s what they do and they do it well. They are party of belief that means justify ends. That’s just another fact of life that your gonna have to get over. Suit up and get back on your pony because now we’re going to battle and it’s not just in Ohio. You can either mount up and move on or become what conservatives have been calling you: “vacillating” or in language of common man “pussies”.
The first step in process of “mounting up” for battle is too be honest with yourself. Look inside, find shortcomings and work towards remediating them. I have and what I’ve found I don’t like. Honestly, John Kerry was not my first choice for a Presidential candidate. For me, he was a compromise that I’m never going to make again. I don’t doubt for one second that John Kerry is a good man but he received my vote because I thought him to be most elect-able alternative to Bush. That will not happen again.
Forget all that you think you know about this past election. It’s all B.S.. Come on, do you really think that morals aren’t a factor in elections? Who says to them self “you know this candidate of ours is just so morally deficient but I don’t care, I’m going to vote for him anyway because he’s going to get much needed tax code reform passed”? Morals are always a factor in elections and yes they are tied in most people’s minds to their religious beliefs. Big surprise there, huh? People don’t vote for leaders strictly for their moral positions or their ideas, they vote for person. Do you want to know what George W. Bush offers people that John Kerry doesn’t? CERTAINTY. Yes, you heard right.
For most of you reading this you are going to have a hard time believing what follows. George W. Bush has vision, he has morals, he’s decisive and strong and while you may not agree with everything he has to say, you should know that when he’s faced with a problem and because he embodies these characteristics, he won’t back down and he’s going to do right thing. No, The Indy Voice has not lost all his marbles. This is what people believe. These characteristics are reason why George W. Bush won election and they are shared by all leaders.
