Can we break the cycle of uncertainty? The answer is ‘yes we can’ if we have the will. This same uncertain cycle has occurred before except we now have an overabundance of easy fix artists that ply a trade and tone that are not in the best interests of our nation, our state, and our very home towns. Fear not - the solutions will come from the people of our very own home towns.
The solutions will come from home town folks because that’s where it has come from in previous periods of uncertainty. This is inherent in the nature of the people of our nation from before our founding to this very day. It’s just harder to achieve common sense solutions in this day and age due to the size and scope of our federal and state governments. Curtailing their size and scope would be a place to start.
I sense a tremendous awareness in the community organizations I belong to. You cannot quantify the magnitude of the impact that your neighbors and you can make that permeates all facets of our lives. No matter the uncertainty, the bad news, or the negativity that reinforces the circumstances of a bad economic situation, our community organizations are with you and will help to find solutions. Their commitment to serve is unwavering. There may be contentious internal and external debates, but in the end, those debates will bring positive results that everyone can be at peace with.
