Our Best Take A Different Path To Change

July 5, 2016

Monday is the Fourth of July, time to eat hot dogs, sing “God Bless America” and shout hateful epithets at the other party’s presidential candidate, or wonder aloud (very loudly) why none is qualified to lead this great nation. “In the old days,” we scream between bites of apple pie, “our best aspired to the Oval Office!” Perhaps. But the best I know, while committed to making a profound impact, rarely consider the meat grinder of politics. Ben Hoyer is a charismatic leader shaping our community through coffee shops and social activism. Julie Columbino is tackling Third-World poverty by making and selling sandals. Our presidential candidates? They’re courting special interests in order to … have their vision thwarted by a partisan Congress. Um, thanks but no thanks.
