One Red Shoe
and our forefathers heads
If there’s anything to be said about the members of our current
congress and house of representatives is that there is to little
hair!. Insert minds eye picture here...
A subject more or less deemed a matter of social conscience, we often forget that our founding fathers sported such long haired viral posturing at one time in our great nations history.
In a period when the evolution of mankind in America is concerned
with the greater good of all who embody our vast nation, we
un knowingly elect men and women for leadership who lack a persistent
fire in their bellies, like that of our fore fathers. Teaming with hormones of virtue, the founding fathers of
our constitution put forth this great nation.
The "fashion" of their time happened to be longer hair,
wigs etc. A clean and neat
appearance on a longer haired politician meant that he was a
gentleman of prestige and character. This stylish posture presented our
early nations public with a vision of strength, courage and
fortitude that is sadly lacking in today’s body politic.
A man or woman in 2008 running as a potential candidate
for the highest office in the land, who does not meet the
grooming standards, or visual acceptance of a prejudicial society,
are often neglected in the election process. Most candidates are
elected solely on their up tight mannequin-like appearance. A
pitiful waste of brain power if you ask me. Past presidents
who sported such testosterone lacking comb over's were the result of an
awkward anal retentive
time. Accept it and move on. The entire concept of up tight looks is
way to inhibited for many voters tastes. What would Thomas Jefferson
or George Washington say to such nervous high strung mistrust of
appearance?. At the time of
the revolution longer hair and wigs were not just a matter of
fashion, but rather a statement of indubitable trust!.
A strong man or woman, who puts forth a firm argument and shows signs of leadership regardless of their perceived looks is the most reasonable choice. Should he or she honestly state their their positions with intelligent facts and meaningful dialogue, the masses may never pay attention to the “one red shoe" they may be wearing. A metaphor for ignoring something inconsequential in lieu of content of character. Would it really make a difference?. Should it really make a difference?. A red herring if you will, the issue of longer hair on a man or woman should not be a matter of judgment by those who pride their vote to elect leaders. Instead consideration should be based upon what positive traits and intelligence they project to all, as well as what they can do for the greater good of mankind. What skills and character a person with longer hair may possess should remain the only facts by which to be judged!.
