The competitive American spirit is a defining part of our national character. But designed to channel that competitive spirit for the good of the whole. We have lost sight of its value in our current political environment.
Fmr. Senate Majority Leaders Trent Lott & Tom Daschle – Crisis Point
On Wednesday night, if you listened carefully, you could hear the county give a giant sigh of relief. The last presidential debate was over. So, were do we go from here? Obviously, there is an election in about two weeks but no doubt there will be much more we need to be aware of over the next four years.
That is why I am re-running my two part conversation beginning this weekend, featuring Former Senate Majority Leaders Trent Lott and Tom Daschle and their eye-opening book: Crisis Point
When Republican Senator Trent Lott and Democrat Senator Tom Daschle, who have been on the opposite sides of the isle on almost every policy and law debated in the Senate, come together to write a book because they both agree we are at a crisis point, it is time to listen.
Our contrasting identities and philosophies also serve as a metaphor for the country itself – and share a vision for how we can get moving again.
So, unless half the country really is moving to Canada after November 8th we’ll have plenty to do and plenty of time to fix what is so badly broken. In fact, this election may really be a wakeup call for our great country. Yes, there are such deep animosities at this time, or at least we are made to believe and feel that, but underneath it all lays a core strength that has existed since our beginning.
Our Founding Fathers generation had enormous faith in ours. We must act to preserve what’s worth saving, change what is hindering us from progress, and exercise the wisdom to know which is which. – Crisis Point
Share these episodes with as many people as you can before you pull those levers. For I believe strongly in the Senators’ words and know you will as well.
“There is hope. It begins with the strength that already exists within this great nation and its people.”
Have a great week and stay strong,
