Politics is an ugly business. There’s no doubt about it. I’ve been involved on a volunteer basis since grade school and on a professional basis in either politics or government for more than thirty years. Sometimes I want out, but I think it’s a calling.
You don’t have to be involved in the day to day operations of a campaign or a cause. But you do need to be informed. Otherwise, you quite simply get the government you deserve.
I think nobody really says it better than Goldie Hawn at the end of the movie “Protocol.”
365 Things I Believe is a revisioning of a year long web project. I initially launched the blog 365 Things I Believe because I think there are important things I have to say. There are eternal truths that are non-debatable, although I realize they’re not universally accepted.
So for a year I did a daily post of one thing I believe to be an indisputable truth. I’m relaunching here at The Write Side of My Brain and will continue through the next year to re-post (mostly) from the original project.
This time graphics and commentary are included. You can buy today’s print here. And, by the end of a year, if not sooner, you’ll be able to purchase the entire series in ebook format.
