Bloody October

10.30.06 | Comment?

No, this isn’t a Halloween post. 100 US Troops have been killed this month. Yet the election largely revolves around other issues from “hurting Bush” to sexcapades. It’s time to be for something, something we can all get behind, that isn’t so much about protecting ourselves as it is about creating a future of which we can be proud.

I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again, it’s time to drive for energy independence. Focus at home on this item, run the Federal government like most of us run our personal finances (i.e., bring more in than we spend and pay down debt,) reduce the government’s footprint (size, scale, and involvement in personal lives and matters,) and resist the urge for more “foreign adventures.”

Let’s be pragmatic, start by keeping as many of our energy dollars as possible in the Midwest and send as few as possible to the Middle East where they’ll get used for who knows what, but likely not something good for us…It’s getting tiresome seeing good people die for no good reason. Let’s do something about it.
