Common Sense

The issues assailing our great nation these days are many and complex.  Odd that as a people we have allowed politicians and the media to manipulate us into approaching each of them in only two ways – liberalism and conservatism.

Ism’s in my opinion are not good. A person should not believe in an -ism, he should believe in himself. Ferris Bueller

Watch a national news broadcast this evening and you’ll see what I mean.  Their dichotomous syntax is geared to maintain a two-party system – bipartisanship, other side of the aisle, Republican, Democrat, liberal, conservative.  Take one from column A and one from column B.  That is not America as defined by Thomas Jefferson, George Washington or Benjamin Franklin.  It is the paradigm that defined the British Empire circa 1776.

The purpose of this blog is to examine things in their totality.  The problems that divide us are too complex to solve simply by looking at them from only two angles.  In fact, that mentality is why we have so many problems to begin with.
