Home Alone

At present we have no national leader, no actual commander in chief – the person filling the position of “president” lacks any knowledge or understanding of world history, geography, or politics. He has no experience or understanding of the structure of our government, the legislative process, or the relationships among the branches of governnent. No understanding of the dances of diplomacy, compromise, or negotiation. No patience, maturity, or ability to see events from any perspective except how he imagines the event will affect the way others regard him. And no interest whatsoever in learning or changing.

The present situation is awful enough on a dull day. But, what if there is a serious crisis of some kind, any kind? What if circumstances arise in which we need a national leader or a commander in chief?

Truly, we are like small children left alone, hoping the house doesn’t catch fire.
