Test for our Leaders

When our leaders and decision makers fall out of line with the American people it may be time to re-think about our voting decisions. I pose a set of simple questions for our leaders that may let them understand just who the American people really are.

  1. When was the last time you made a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch? Or hot dogs and mac and cheese? Rice and beans? How about fried bologna with melted cheese?
  2. When was the last time you needed to make a decision on which bill to pay and which bill will have to wait until next month? When was the last time you felt the threat of being evicted or foreclosed on your home?
  3. When was the last time you felt that sending your children out to play may be too dangerous? Or, when was the last time you felt that you were in a situation where you had to physically defend yourself?
  4. When was the last time that you felt you needed government assistance just to feed you family?

These questions and many more are realities that Americans deal with each and everyday. By simply truly understanding these realities a leader can quickly distinguish the direction that must be taken to provide an initial plan of attack that works for the American people.
