Great commentary Don. Unfortunately indeed there are not enough folks that stand like a rock. We as a society continue to cede control of our own destiny out of ignorance and complacency. People choose to ignore the issues of the day and are content with that fact. They are too busy to be bothered, too scattered to care, too willing to write a blank check. I know because I am one of them far too often! We need people like you. We need more watch dogs. More folks that care and question the leaders of policy. I wish that elections to government seats ran more like a jury pool. Serving your community should be a duty and privilege....not a career! I trust no one that makes it a occupation. No matter the noblest of intentions, special interests and personal greed almost always rise to the the top. It is time as a community, a state, and a country that we look to what our forefathers envisioned and scrap the path that we are now on. It is a trail that leads to nowhere and we're getting there fast!
