No Ordinary Man

Today commemorates the day Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) died in 1945.

My additional studies about the Great Depression, Public Works Administration, and World War II makes me think I understand more why my parents never championed President Roosevelt, his programs or his vision. They did not agree with the concept that government had all the answers, nor was government the solution to all problems.

In the past I imbued those in government with great intelligence, expertise and almost a superhuman omniscience on national issues. But seeing the continual mistakes made, I no longer grant them those qualities! The older I get, the more I realize that only ordinary men run our nation.

Ordinary men should not make decisions about my life.

My likes and dislikes or my hopes and dreams no one can understand. No one can regulate, give, or take away my rights and desires, except God who originally set them in my heart.
