I Like

While we were at Greenfield Village,  we had the chance to watch as pottery was being made. I love to see things of beauty evolve from mud.  These two pieces caught my eye as I scanned one table. Their symmetry was  music to my eyes.  I don't know how others are, but I can feel the rhythm in the plate and the bottle.  They are simply beautiful.

Often we try to steer toward the complicated.  Why is that?  Do we fall for the elite notion that the common citizen is just too ignorant to understand what needs to be done and how to do it?

Lets just step back and see what has happened to us over the past fifty years or more.   We have added law after law and tax after tax and things have just gotten worse.  The original Constitution was a great document that worked very well, until we started trying to differentiate between Americans. When Martin Luther was able to bring everyone to even ground, what did we do? We started dividing people over everything. There are now old and young, different skin colors, rich and poor, workers and management (as if they don't 'work'), Christians and non Christians, male and female (and we've added more here), lean and fat, smokers and non-smokers.  It goes on and on.  We've divided America. But we are to be the states.  We are all the same...citizens.  Those who are not citizens do not share the same privileges.  But all who are and live by the same laws, should pay the same percentage of taxes, etc.  We are all in this together and we need to respect one another.  All jobs are important. All people have the right  to live in freedom from oppressive laws.

I like the simple message of Herman Cain. It is based on facts, not complicated theories.
