GOVERNING IS SIMPLE IF TRUTHFUL AND DIFFICULT IF DECEITFUL AND CORRUPT
by JG Garner
Agreed. Black and white. Dark or light. North or south. East or west.
I read a book a few years back. A book well known to many. I will paraphrase the general idea.
The author wrote governing is not hard. It is easy. The corrupt make it complicated. The compromised make the waters murky.
Itâs simple. Is it good for the nation? Is it good for the economy? Does it weaken us? Do we want those convicted of the most heinous crimes to still breath. As long as they live, they could be amongst us âfree menâ again.
Iâve provided a small paragraph on an entire chapter. But you get my point. Things should be pretty cut and dry.
In the criminal justice system we now look at the accused in a sympathetic view. Was his life hard? Did his parents beat him? Ect. The only thing we need to unwind is was a crime committed? Did the accused commit said crime? Is the victim dead or injured.
