Wherefore, honest men and wise men should be sought for diligently, and good men and wise men ye should observe to uphold; (D&C 98:10)

Harmony in Politics

As I was going to sleep to some classical music, my mind went to a statement Newt Gingrich made in the debates last night, "I'm Not Interested In Your Effort To Get Republicans Fighting Each Other".  There were images of the Republican candidates very different voices yet they were in harmony.  United in their desire to get those who want to work back to work.  To have the idle capital invested.  Like the manure Dolly Levi (see comment below) would call it, spread the capital out to all its investments to grow new things.

I sure hope that we can stick together with those that agree with us 80% of the time.  That we focus on what will bring the greatest good and not divide ourselves needlessly.

I meant Dolly Levi. My dear wife pointed out my mixing up Dolly Madison with Dolly Levi.

"Money, pardon the expression, is like manure. It's not worth a thing unless it's spread around, encouraging young things to grow."
