While politicians in Washington, DC decide how to spend our money, the business of our lives goes on, no matter what they decide. Don’t lose heart.
“Now, you may remember that when I spoke to you last year, I said the election victory we enjoyed in November of l980 was not a victory of politics so much as it was a victory of ideas; not a victory for any one man or party, but a victory for a set of principles, principles that had been protected and nourished during the years of grim and heartbreaking defeats by a few dedicated Americans. Well, you are those Americans, and I salute you.”
Ronald Reagan February 26, 1982 9th CPAC Conference
Though the future may look uncertain, even grim, don’t be tempted to look anywhere other than your mirror for the answer to your problems. You are your own “empowerment zone.”
