I don’t want to get preachy, or debate religion, but I found this article a breath of fresh air in the political world that surrounds us. The portion I selected is the end of the article, a summary you might say.
We must think bigger and address the system of societal unhealth, not the symptom of societal unhealth. The current legislation is the medical equivalent of putting a small bandage over a giant pus-filled wound which continues unhindered to pump out poison into the entire body.
I implore lawmakers to do their tasks with dignity. The stakes are eternal here–and to play with these things motivated solely by electability and partisan denies the whole idea of the reason for the kind of government we say we want.
