The Truth About Election
We just had a very interesting election this year here in the U.S. This can be grueling, and painful process much like childbirth, but offers great promise and wonderful opportunities much like having a new baby in the house.
For those who campaigned and voted believing that government is going to solve all their problems, I hate to be the one to bring you the bad news, but government rarely, if ever, creates the outcomes we seek; but instead, government at its best clears the way and gives us a track to run on so we can create the outcomes we want in our lives. If you watch the news regularly, you might assume that what happens in the White House and on Wall Street controls your life. In reality, what happens in your house and on your street is what makes the difference.
I read it somewhere that said, “A government that can give you anything you want can take away everything you have.”
We are lucky to have a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. If we don’t like the leadership we have or the policies that exist, we need to seek to change them as we seek to change and improve our own lives. A government that is $30 trillion in debt can’t create wealth for its citizens, but it can give you a way for you to create your own success.
In the Declaration of Independence says that we are entitled to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. But what does this mean? This means that we need to take control of our own lives and call upon our government to give us a way so every person has the maximum opportunity to achieve the highest level of life, liberty, and happiness.
Equal opportunity does not necessarily mean equal results. Freedom allows us all to visualize our own success and pursue our own destiny.
