Thank you, Governor Kasich, for a thoughtful contribution that hopefully will give some people hope. An excellent read.
The reason he ended up getting my support is well flushed out in this book. A reiteration of his refusal to "take the low road to the highest office." And his insistence that nothing gets accomplished without buy in from both sides - a factor I think was crushed by GOP leadership (McConnell) during Obama's eight years as president - was something I've always thought about politics. Even politics in Washington.
As new media sources have become more and more partisan (even delving into outright lies) it seems impossible to have rational discourse these days. And the problem seems to have gotten worse over the general election and now through the first months of Donald Trump's presidency. But these pages, this book reiterates what we already know. It doesn't have to be this way. Nuance and open mindedness take effort and time. But isn't our country worth it?
I know after the general election I took a hard look at where I was receiving my news sources and tried to take an extra second to let my initial reaction to news headlines become tempered by a second or third run through to see if the meat of the article really jibed with the headline. You'd be surprised (or maybe not surprised) to learn that a lot of times it doesn't.
I was struck by Kasich's recounting of a townhall where a gentleman asked Kasich what he intended to do to fix the opioid epidemic, and Kasich turned that right back and asked the man what he was doing to fix it. It's an honest question. On November 8, I had a tear filled conversation with a good friend about how I clearly wasn't doing enough to make my world, heck my neighborhood, into the place I wanted to live.
While sometimes, most of the time, I live at the base level described by Kasich in this book, in those moments where I go higher I try to keep my November 8 lessons in mind. What am I doing to make my community better? And that usually involves putting down the smart phone and really trying to connect with people, even to smile and say hello, thank you and please. Connecting to people, just like Kasich did on the campaign trail.
Thanks John Kasich for such a thoughtful analysis and a good example.
Now more than ever, this country needs to listen to this man as he gets his message out there. He's not running for president here. Rather, he's trying to get us to return to sanity, work with one another, and put country over party.
Saner heads must prevail if we're to come out of this trainwreck of a presidency in one piece. Kasich does not bad-mouth Trump, but he does make it clear that what we have today is not good for the country. It's time we take the path of being united, not the path of division, which we had with Obama and now have again with Trump.
For those who call Kasich a RINO, he has an excellent retort -- "I'm a Republican, and I have as much right to define that as anyone."
Darned straight, Governor.
Repulicans, Democrats, Independents, this book is for you. you, too, have as much right to define where you want your country to go and what your party stands for. You just need to become engaged.
I highly recommend this book. It isn't about Kasich or the election -- It's about this country. Which path will you take?
I was not interested as much in the behind the scenes look at his campaign and all that transpired except for how it related to his view of America becoming united again. In his book, that starts with each one of us and flows up, not top down as it is today. We, all of us, need to be more involved and change advocates based on truth, not in lying or telling people what they want to hear to gain support.
I was able to attend one of his Town Hall meetings in Sandy Springs, GA during his campaign and came away very impressed with his knowledge on the issues and his ability to respectfully disagree if he had a differing opinion. I voted (write-in) for him in the Presidential election and after reading this book, I am convinced I made the right decision.
