I don’t write about politics often on this blog. I have an outlet for that kind of analysis on the 6 Sense Media platform I run with my friend and partner Dennis Nappi II. However, I do understand and believe that politics is important. It’s the way our civilization makes decisions. Not to hit this too hard here, but that process has been devastatingly broken for a long time now and it’s easy to see the negative results of it in our political discourse and our inability to tackle critical issues for our country.
I’ve always said that if our politics and politicians don’t speak to our highest aspirations, our politics devolves into our lowest impulses. Therefore, I think it’s important to call out and extoll politicians who seem to be speaking to those highest aspirations.
Whether or not you agree with their solutions Iraq war veteran and Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard and best-selling author and voice of conscience in America Marianne Williamson are putting forward, I wanted to call them out and congratulate them on seeking that higher ground, that saner dialogue, and for courageously talking about the challenges we face and why what we’re doing now is not working.
Here are a couple of examples of this from each of them. I hope you’ll take a few moments to hear them. Whether either of them is your candidate or not, it’s so important to demand more vision and positivity from our politicians. That’s what serves all of us and will deliver the future we all want.
This was her exploratory committee video, but it was powerful.
We Americans and we citizens of the world have a right to political leaders who speak truth and who will stand up for the people because we don’t have that right now. We have a system that listens to big money, serves big money, and we see the results everywhere.
To be an incredible leader, you must first be a credible leader. I believe these two women have the character, the courage, and the message to lead us in better directions.
I’d love to hear your thoughts below.
Hold out for a system that supports our highest aspirations. It IS possible.
