Most of my political views lately have been anti-Republican. Not because I disagree with the basic philosophy of the Republican platform, but because most of the people that make up the politicians are dishonest about the reasons. They are playing a game.... Grover has them sign a pledge that even he doesn't believe. No new taxes! No old taxes! No taxes period! For that matter, let's just have total free market with no regulation. That worked so well under Bush. When I played in big corporate life, the division president loved to quote the golden rule: He who has the gold, rules!...
I'm all for a balanced budget..... I'm even for no taxes. But in the end, as a society based in Christianity, we have to step up to the plate and even out the field and do what is morally right, not what is within the letter of the law. Are we our brothers keepers? Do we follow the 'do unto others as you would have them do unto you' golden rule or do unto others before they do it unto you!
What I think it boils down to is what Troy and I call the pie, the whole pie and nothing but the pie...... there are two basic groups in business - the ones who believe there is only one pie and if you are getting some of it, then they are getting less. It is their lot in life to take as much of it from you as they can...... Then there is the group we belong to: There are millions of pies. There is plenty to go around for all of us. We can each have our own pie....we can have more than one pie.
Which do you believe?
