A seesaw and leadership

My research at Keep America At Work over the last 5 years has shown me that all of our generations have fought the ages old pendulum swing between humanity and greed.

The easiest way to visualize this is with a seesaw.

On one side we have the business minded people.

Most are good people but some would resemble Scrooge if the truth be told.

Most will treat their employees right and do right by them, but some like Scrooge would have them working in sweatshops to be cast aside when they can no longer produce.

On the other side we have the people that care not for business and they only work so that they will have the resources to pursue their interests which might be gardening, amateur radio, sports or whatever.

On the other side we will find the majority of people and they care not for business as they will be more comfortable helping one another via church, school or other such interests.

Many people on the business side call for free markets and demand that we let the markets regulate themselves and were it not for the Srooges, Madoffs and Corzines of the World it might work.

But it doesn’t, does it?

Which is why we need Government and why we need Government of the size that is necessary to monitor and regulate these Scrooges of the World.

Luckily for us, our forefathers were wise enough to set up our system of Government in the form of a legislative branch, judicial branch and executive branch and it was to be comprised of the people, and for the people for reasons stated above.

Throughout our history this pendulum swing or seesaw has swung from one extreme to the other and during the great buildup of the middle class, it was the people united via unions that enabled the people, aided and abetted by government made up of the people, for the people to compete toe to toe with the business community.

And we had a media that was not shackled by the business community nor censored by the government and led by editors that realized that it was up to them to watch for corruption between all parties.

But lately the business community has bought and controlled both government and media and we find ourselves with the following situation that can best be described by this picture that I found at this site.

Which will lead any true leader to recognize that there will never be a way for us to balance the needs of the business community and the peoples right to a life that will be better and fuller for all regardless of their circumstances of birth.

So the question is, how do we restore this balance?

The only way that I can see is to restore the government to a level where it is made up of the people, for the people with leaders who recognize that we need both parties and that it is up to them to maintain this delicate balance between the people and the business community.

This means that we must identify the extremists on all sides like Boehner, Cantor, Pelosi, Reid, etc. and educate our people in their states so that they will vote out these people and replace them with leaders that recognize that it is up to them to provide the balance between the business community and the people.

That my friends is why I want to run for the United States Senate to fill the seat that Kay Bailey Hutchison will be vacating.

I can’t do this by myself.

I have the vision.

I have the dream to see the balance restored between both parties because we need both parties for democracy to thrive and prosper and remain the dominant way of life for the oppressed the world over.

But it won’t happen unless we all work together to make it happen.

The first step requires a filing fee of $5,000.00 and it needs to be made before 11 December of this year.

Do you want to see things continue as they are, or will you work with me and people like me to restore the control of our government to the people, where it is for the people?
