A friend of mine just shared this idea, and it is absolutely worth repeating…
Instead of everyone volunteering to work for the nation (the government), how about everyone in the government – senators, representatives, bureaucrats – must have one year in the private sector before they can serve in government.
Too often, the government, as an entity, muddles in the free market and makes life worse for everyone.
I’m not sure who came up with the logic of people with no experience in something running that something.
Remove the personality from this for a second: Why did people have a problem with someone who had experience in the oil industry weighing in on our energy issues as President?
Seems to me, his experience would be valuable in that capacity.
