You wanted a President who would put the people’s needs before her own; who would do her job without fanfare, without gloating, without complaining. You wanted a President who didn’t require a salary, a nice house or a fancy jet. You wanted a President who didn’t really want to be the President, but was willing to step in when required. You wanted a President who could accept not being believed, not being recognized, who could work quietly in the background without a word of thanks. And maybe you didn’t even realize it, but I think deep down, you wanted all of that.
And maybe you didn’t want a President who would wait for you to do your part and not try to force things. Maybe you didn’t want one who would stand by while you bore the consequences of your inability to discern, unwillingness to think critically or your reluctance to take appropriate action when called upon. Maybe you didn’t want a President who had no silver platter upon which to hand you all the answers, who would not jump when you demanded it, who would not cave in to disapproval while standing on principle alone. But that’s what you’ve got.
You just might reach the sunset of your life before you realize the truth of your world — that, while you did not vote me in, neither did you ever vote any President in. My job is to be here when reality finally sinks in.
Please enjoy scenes from my Walk for Natural law the past few weeks.
This is not the sort of walk across America where the goal is not necessarily to arrive from point A to point B. It’s a new lifetyle, for now, where walking allows time and space to meet the ground and the sky, and the people who dwell in between; and through the process, introduce America to Natural Law.
