Another thought on Responsibility

Something that just popped into my head while writing an email. Why is it that we look to the next set of politicians to fix everyhting for us? Isn’t the whole point of us being free Americans, to make the choice ourselves to change things? Wouldn’t one hope to take care of his/her own self/family/business? Must we wait and see who can give us the most for nothing,and when we get the deal we want, THEN we’ll change on that day? And then on that day, when "our guy" wins, we look for the next excuse as to why we will have to wait until tomorrow to change, and we only hope tomorrow we can justify the same excuses. That way we arent forced out of our comfort zone, and let someone else go do it, instead. For more thoughts, go to my blog reference section to "The Slow Bleed" and look into his page!

Wow Mike - That was extremely well said.

Too many people (ok, most) look outside themselves for a solution. Will Obama solve everything for us? Will Hillary? Will anyone? - Probably not.

Responsibility only lies within each of us.

Oh, you said the R word. Lots of people don't even understand the concept of personal responsibility these days--unless they want to sue somebody else whose "responsiblity" it was for their not being sensible.

You asked, "Wouldn't one hope. . .". I'm not sure everyone would anymore.
