Meg Whitman is running for governor of California. She seems fine. But the question I wonder about is about the moral values she will espouse. All throughout the article we hear the typical Republican solutions of less taxes, less regulations, and better fiscal management.
But what about our culture? Does that matter? It should.
It seems only the left-wing extremists truly care, and they care in the wrong way.
I resent the idea that California has a fiscal crisis, but not a moral crisis.
What about the out of wedlock births?
What about the high abortion rates?
What about the crime rate?
What about the poor education, especially among the poor?
What about the garbarge on television? in the movies? in our music?
These are equally important to me, to many Americans, and both parties are not doing their jobs.
Democrats, we attained the majority without addressing the core issues that trouble America.
I didn't think it was possible, so I realize I'm not in a strong position to argue this.
And as long as the Republicans keep ignoring social conservatives and putting forth a stale economic agenda we probably can and will keep winning. But I want us to use this time to make the country better.
We need to define a strong moral agenda that is right for America.
We need to set high standards in terms of ethics and honesty.
We need to elevate cultural health with that of the economy.
This is why we need competition. At the moment there isn't very much coming from the Right.
But the beauty of America is that can change overnight in one storyline.
