THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY
9 AUGUST 2016
"The best among us no longer present themselves for elective office and American voters willfully elect the worst who do."(jam 2011)
Oh how far we have strayed from our founders' vision that people of high achievement, the most accomplished among us, would be elected to lead the nation. They would lend themselves to the people, give all the benefit of their knowledge, their skills and talents, how they achieved success and more, then pass the job on to another one of like attributes. The best among us. Sadly, no longer is this true. The 2016 presidential election is proving that the worst among us can be elected.
