Wake up! No more politics as usual! 3

Wake up, America! Seize the day!

Could our many different problems - unemployment and underemployment, housing foreclosures, high health care costs and the lack of coverage, the concentration of wealth, gridlock in DC and the over-concentration of Federal power, energy – be addressed by a shift in the way we think, feel and behave?

Aren’t all our problems really interconnected and interdependent anyhow?

Remember what Pogo said? “We have met the enemy and they is us.”

Could more cooperation, compassion, and less conflict, hate and blame begin to move us forward?

What wonders could we accomplish if we came together as Americans first, and partisan party members, second?

Wake up, America! Seize the day!

Stop business as usual!

Stop conflict, hate, and blame.

Shift from that negative stuff to the positive stuff of cooperation and compassion.

The competitive, adversarial way we're doing things prevents our getting a clear unified vision, prevents our coming from the necessary cooperative compassionate perspective that will produce the solutions we need.

Let’s come together, and from that new and different place, gain the perspective that will enable us, not only how to see how to solve our problems, but how to turn them into opportunities.

Wake up, America! Seize the day!
