  • Two Professional Interviews

    Today's program gave insight into the two men running for President. I know a lot of what we heard has been said before, but it was good to see the two men interviewed by unbiased journalists. It's always good to be able to watch a full interview and get the context of the sound bites that appear on the news.

    Mitt Romney's big idea of Freedom appeals to me. By definition, Freedom cannot be defined because it means something different to each one of us. For example, having a car in the garage is very important to me because it represents freedom to me. It's also the freedom to practice my faith as I choose. For others, it will be a thousand different things.

    I think the idea is that if you reduce government, you create room for the private sector to innovate and create. I do believe that government's role is not to create jobs, but to foster an environment where innovation and entrepreneurship are free to flourish.
  • Freedom that allows America to lead the world

    Mr. Romney says his big idea is freedom. He did little to define the freedom that allows America to lead the world. It seems that this sound bite statement could be interpreted by various segments of the American community in both positive and negative ways. Where one may aspire to the greatness of their forefathers, another may recall the cruelties of those decision makers in their acquiescence to the darker side of our history. He did not show any concern for this reality in American society and this is why he comes across as aloft and priviledged. Perhaps he just can't get it.
