Yesterday I suggested in my post that the people on Main Street needed to drive America back to sanity because we couldn’t count on our politicians to do it. My friend, John Galt of the America’s Chronicle blog commented that “no civilization has ever been saved by “main street” – the masses. The masses destroy, they don’t build. The masses must be guided in order to become a positive force. ” Sadly, I had to agree with John and I added that the masses have not shown much talent for selecting those that would guide them. I recalled a cartoon that I had seen at the Frankenstein Government blog. I have shamelessly stolen it because I think it explains a lot of our problem in selecting good leaders.
It doesn’t bode well for our future, does it?
Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
