What Works: Common Sense Solutions for a Stronger America
(ePUB - Apr 2014)
Not currently available online.
Thomas probes and provides answers to questions like, why must we constantly refight the same battles over and over? Why don't we consult the past and use common sense in order to see that what others discovered long before we were born can still works today? Our politics and even our spiritual lives too often resemble the film ?Groundhog Day? in which actor Bill Murray wakes up and repeats the same event again and again with the same results. Think present-day Washington. We KNOW what works ? historically and instinctively - but politics too often gets in the way, as does ignorance. Too few people pay attention and the politicians easily pick their pockets ? literally and intellectually. That's why Congress has an approval rating lower than cockroaches and colonoscopies and only slightly above pedophiles. What Works is about solutions, not theories. It's about pressuring political leadership to forget about the next election and start focusing on the needs of the people who work hard, and send increasing amounts of their tax dollars to Washington, and long to see the country achieve something of value ? like it has always done.
