We are living in a rather odd time. It is critical historically for many
different reasons. We will each see what is important from our own hearts.
The politicians foisted by the juggernaut of the candidate selection may be shiny apples, but not of the best qualities. I long for the day when Americans will do an end run on those political parties and vote for the candidate – with no regard
to party. I hope the days of the polished look, Brooks Brother’s suits and the candidate stepping from a sleek, black limo will end.
As an American - I look for heart in candidates. I look for how time has tested them and how they grew from that.
I am no fan of either major political party. In fact, I channel my distain for them in what I do – knowing what they have done to America. (Clearly though, they are not to blame for all our foibles). I truly wonder about the future of the
heart of the Republican Party, and as it is now, its relevance to our future. As I travel the 10th Congressional District of Virginia, nearly all yard signs barking out the names of Romney and Allen are in front of the homes of the One Percent. Those citizens may have great heart – they should think hard about our future though.
