Now I remember why I don’t like to listen to the news….

Ok, I’m going to crawl out on a limb here and say what I’m thinking and if you think I’m totally wrong, please let me know.

Sexual harassment charges. I wouldn’t want anyone harassing me or my daughters or my mother in this way in a job or anywhere else. It’s wrong. It’s awful. It’s a type of bullying. It shows men to be predators instead of protectors.

But what does this have to do with politics and being able to run for president?

Say, what?????

Well, if you take a good historical look, Ben Franklin was sleeping around, and so was John F. Kennedy. Nixon had a real potty mouth and I’m pretty sure that a lot of other politicians saw nothing wrong with breaking the commandment against adultery as long as the people didn’t find out.

It just seems more like it’s “par for the course” and therefore shouldn’t be a barometer as to whether the person can help run a country or not. We’re not voting a guy in as our pastor or counselor. IOW, I don’t think you can find too many politicians out there who haven’t messed around, so therefore, maybe it shouldn’t be an issue.

I want somebody who is going to help the United States to be a great place to live for everyone. Somebody who will make life more, not less, tolerable by making the taxation low and helping businesses thrive by not taxing them to death. I want somebody who will cherish human life and improve conditions for the poorest. I want protection from threats from other countries, but I don’t want to go bullying everybody in the world to pretend they come around to how we supposedly think. Maybe they were better off without Coke and women’s rights and video games and pizza. “That government is best that governs least.”

Make the tax system simple. Stop fighting in the middle east. Make an army of construction soldiers who will go out and build houses and schools in Appalachia and Detroit. Encourage people to work and save instead of charging everything. Encourage people to walk, to volunteer, to work, and to learn to cherish worthwhile activity over worthless leisure.

Just a few thoughts….

    I think there is an enormous difference between “sleeping around” and sexual harassment… It’s not just “committing adultery”. It’s completely abusing the power they’ve been given in a terrible, disgusting way, to try and get themselves something they think they deserve. I think it shows a fundamental problem with the person’s psyche if they are harassing someone–and /especially/ if it’s sexual harassment.
