Hello folks. I am the guy in a white hat riding in on a 383 stroker. I know a few of the names here, @CoinBlazer and @toughcoins and offer my warmest howdy-do to you fellers. A bit of how I arrived at my political background.... I joined the US Army as a nuclear missile crewman in 1977. I was a kid and had little use for politics in my life. I served the army almost eight years. But in 1980 something magical happened. Moral became cool again for a soldier. I reveled in it and went on to serve in the Army color guard. When I discovered that pride came from the top, then I took an interest and became a staunch republican. However I do not vote a straight ticket and in fact voted for President Clinton his second term as I was pleased with his economy. Ahh yes.... The economy.... I built a business in the 1990’s. I have eight folks that happily share in our company’s success. I have provided health care at my expense since the early 2000’s. I watched the premiums more than quadruple during the previous administration. I wasn’t pleased and used my power as a voter to do something about that. Never once vocalizing my distaste towards our nations leaders. Which brings me to why I am here. I truly wish to understand the pre-pubescent bickering that takes place these days among those that profess to be in the know. Never in all my years have I witnessed such a childish public outcry. People are working. Jobs are stable. What on earth can possibly make these childish outcries seem OK? On either side of the fence, mind you. Bickering gets nothing done. As a businessman I learned long ago that results are the true substance of anyone’s efforts. News is no longer news. It is all “opinion” regardless of the channel you choose to get it from..... We are blessed to live in the most civilized time and place in the history of the planet. I just want to know... Why don’t we act that way?
