Connecting the Dots in an Unconnected World

Misplaced Priorities

This morning I read an article titled, U.S. Calls Summit on Texting While Driving, on This article portrays the concern of a group of our lawmakers and our president about the practice of "texting" while driving. While I agree that it is dangerous to “text” while you drive, does this require a summit of experts to realize the inherent dangers involved in “texting” while driving?

This is but one more example of a government with misplaced priorities. They desire to develop laws against “texting” while our nation allows the legalized murder of unborn infants, now numbering in the millions. We call a summit concerned about “texting” while we debate legislation that calls for everyone 65 and older to attend “end of life counseling” (a first step to legalized euthanasia). We conduct dialogue about “texting” while our national debt is rising exponentially seemingly with no concern to reduce it. We create news concerning “texting” while we pay lip service to addressing the problems of crime, drugs, and alcohol in our nation.

We have for far too long accepted symbolism over substance from our political leaders. Our nation has real problems and needs serious leaders who will tackle those problems with a concern for their constituents that exceeds their concern for another photo op or bump in the polls. To quote a famous radio personality, “WAKE UP AMERICA!”

Attempting to connect the dots…
