Is The Path Clear?

The clock is winding down on the upcoming Presidential election, just five more days and it will be revealed who has painted their vision to the satisfaction of the American people. Vision casting always includes an element of waking people out of their apathy, and that's what this election is all about. It's going to boil down to whom gets their voters out to register their ballots. Who is going to rally those impassioned about the existing problems this country faces.

The visionary always presents the solution to the problem. They address the perceived need, and for others to join you they have to have a clear picture of your solution. Herein lies a problem with politics. To present a defined picture of your plan leaves you open to criticism. So generally the vision painted for the future by politicians is a mist, a mist designed to fog the view. Clarity is not prudent in a campaign. Quite a challenge to rally support without specifics!

This explains the generic campaign slogans such as "forward!" Probably a good plan in a traffic jam, but not if your in line for execution. If you look back on political campaign slogans you'll understand. "Hope and change, a chicken in every pot, a plan for the future," these are all muddled visions designed to generically excite the mob to vote. They prey on ignorance and attempt to overcome apathy. Soon we'll see who took the palate and painted their vision for America to the satisfaction of the voters who stood in attendance.

God Bless!
Capt. Bill
