Politicians putting party before nation, people

If only politicians, especially the Congress, applied what we in Rotary apply – the four-way test of the things we say, think or do – maybe our country wouldn’t be in such a mess.

Imagine that before they say, think or do anything, they ask, “Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build good will and better friendship? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?”

Maybe this is too easy and too simple to follow and politicians would rather make things complicated to look like they are working very hard. How sad that the party comes before the nation and the people.
