Sixty miles west of Boston, Massachusetts there is the small New England town of Sturbridge. Located at the junction of I-90 (The Mass Pike), and I-84 it has become known as the "Crossroads of New England". The town was first settled over 300 years ago, and like other small New England towns it has grown just enough over the years to be in a difficult place today. How do we embrace the future without forgetting how we got to our present? How do we attract the right kind of growth, and maintain who we are? And, what about our culture out here in Central Massachusetts?
These pages will cause one to think about how to protect what we have, our future direction, and how to move on in the very best way.
Those thoughts, and other ramblings, will hopefully inspire more thought, conversation, action, and occasionally a smile...
...seems to be working so far
Maybe if Martha Coakley were a politician she would have run a more efficient campaign, but I like the fact that she isn’t the typical politician.ReplyDelete
You need to vote for the candidate who cares about the issues you care about, one who would stand up for what is right (what YOU think is right). Don’t get caught up in Brown’s biggest message, that of "Martha’s run a negative campaign".
Brown’s way of thinking is what got us in the fiscal mess the country is now in, The Bush Way of thinking! It is going to take more time to clean up the mess that the Bush administration created and sending a Republican from Massachusetts to Washington will only thwart the efforts of Obama’s administration.
It’s not like Brown has been squeaky clean in his campaign. I’ve heard plenty of Martha bashing, on television, radio and even in a phone call from his camp. Is it because Martha is a woman some of us expect her to be above it all, and at the same time we allow Brown to take the negative approach yet we don’t say a word about it?
Send a Massachusetts resident who cares about the hard working people of Massachusetts, and vote for Martha.
PS. I like this post, because it gives us a chance to stop and think, and put things in perspective. Don’t sweat the small stuff!!
Another thoughtful article. Thank you.ReplyDelete
None of the candidates is my cup of tea. I think the healthcare issue is extremely important, however, and will "vote on the issue," not the politician this time.
If you look at both candidates from an ethical standpoint, Martha indeed threw ethics out the window. When I look at Brown's actions, he does what is ethically and morally the right thing, in line with First Amendment rights, even in the face of adversity (meaning: he cannot please everyone.)ReplyDelete
