Post-Election Pursuit of Truth Continues Unabated
Posted by Larry Doyle on November 7, 2012 7:16 PM |
The day after an election creates a spectrum of emotions. Elation for the victorious. Resignation for the vanquished. Exhaustion for many on both sides of the battle.
While I am personally disappointed in the outcome of the election, my sense of despair emanates not from the mere defeat of a candidate. My concern stems from the deep divide within our nation, the dysfunction in Washington, and the perpetual assault upon our prized virtue of the truth. America is significantly weakened by these insidious and destructive cancers that permeate our politics and many other aspects of our society.
We will rue the day — and I believe it is not far off — that we do not embrace the truth and kill these cancers. Right now, with little assistance from the media, the truth is being battered.
Please allow me to comment specifically upon the points I raised the other day in Why I Am Voting for Mitt Romney.
ECONOMIC: let’s see who President Obama recruits to his team of advisors. I will watch specifically for the members of the Council of Economic Advisors. If President Obama wants to heal the divide in the nation, I would encourage him to reach across the aisle in this realm and bring in some heavyweights capable of bipartisan dealings. The best social programs continue to be jobs and families. What will the administration do to promote both?
A repeat of pure partisan lightweights/hacks as seen in the first administration would be a serious warning sign. Who will be the next heads of the SEC and Treasury? Repeats of the current “in Wall Street’s hip pocket” individuals will not be a good omen.
MILITARY: is there anybody who would not support an independent investigation with subpoena powers to determine what truly happened in Benghazi? The families of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Ty Woods, and Bub Doherty deserve nothing less than the full facts, or dare I say, the total truth.
FAITH: I do not expect much help on this front. Let’s make no mistake, though, the American family is under assault and the job of a parent is increasingly more challenging in the immoral society that defines America right now. These attacks and the perversion of the truth in the process is nothing more than politically supported BIG BUSINESS. I call it a cesspool and my faith a lifeline. I better make sure it is a long one.
VIOLATION OF RULE OF LAW/ VIOLATION OF PROPERTY RIGHTS/WALL STREET REFORM: welcome to my wheelhouse. You can rest assured that my pursuit of the truth in these realms will continue unabated and with tireless determination. There is a LOT to write about and with crony capitalism increasingly embedded into our economy, I expect to be busy. I look forward to operating from an even larger platform as we move into the latter part of 2013. More details on that in the months ahead.
In summary, now is most definitely not the time to hang our heads. The campaigns we encounter every two and four years are important. The daily campaign and pursuit of the truth is equally important. Why? We need a fully informed electorate, especially given the heavily biased media acting as journalists. Our children are counting on us now more than ever.
Please join our campaign and pursuit. When you see the truth in all its glory, please share it here. I welcome and encourage those who badly want the truth to know they have a home here and to speak their mind in the process.
In summary, please pray for our nation. Please continue to fight for the truth.
On a positive note, we got our power back today after ten days. Please continue to pray for those less fortunate, especially those in metro-NYC and New Jersey, whom have been displaced from their homes. As I write this, we are being hit with another storm. There is real pain out there.
TRUTH, TRANSPARENCY, INTEGRITY.
