Howdy! It’s Wednesday! And I found a little question I thought was HIGHLY appropriate for this time in our country’s history. (And if you’re from a different country, feel free to use your own situation!) Here it is…
If you were elected to be the leader of the United States tomorrow, what would be your first act?
There are sure a lot of things I could choose to do that might impact the social climate in a productive way. But I had to ask myself what I thought would make the most difference in the long term. And this may seem like a silly answer, but I’m not sure it is.
I would pass an act that requires every single person who registers to vote to take a VERY comprehensive class in civics (with no language barrier) because most of us in this country don’t have a clue how the bloomin’ government operates. It would cover everything: the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, the branches of the government and how they work together, how the states work with the federal government, and what the heck is up with being able to tack crap onto bills going through the process that has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH THE BILL!!! That should be illegal!
Why? Because if we don’t start educating people, we’ll never learn from our mistakes and be able to make wise decisions. Does that seem like a wasted FIRST ACT?
What about you? What would you do?
