i have an idea...



I cannot persuade myself that without love to others, and without, as far as rests with me, peaceableness toward all, I can be called a worthy servant of Jesus Christ.

Saint Basil

Eight more months of election rhetoric. I am pretty sick of the accusations and inaccuracies being thrown about and the feigned indignity when candidates are confronted with their own words.

So I have an idea...let's pass a constitutional amendment that requires all candidates to campaign under oath. Some will take it seriously and tell (or continue to tell) the truth. The others? Well...maybe we would have some recourse--for impeachment, if nothing else.

Just sayin'.

Stupendous idea!

And the quote. That peaceableness toward all is the hardest part for me. The mere thought of some folks (Rush Limbaugh this week?) causes my throat to constrict and my respiration to increase. I keep working on that part. Thank you for the reminder.
