Bill Bradley, the former senator and NBA star, has published a new book discussing the current political state of the country. While Mr. Bradley makes some very good points with the current state of the country's political state it seems almost impossible to make changes to better our situation. With how our current political, economic and education system runs there are so many changes that must be made to create a better tomorrow that it is overwhelming.
We Can All Do Better is a serious, thought provoking read that will leave you coming up with your own ideas on how we can each make a difference. Even small things like taking time to educate ourselves and our households on current political policy will make a difference in how we vote and in turn what we stand for. As Bradley says you can't just tell a young person with their first job just how FICA and medicare will benefit them in 50 years, they need to see and understand just what these things do and what they mean. If they aren't educated on the reasons behind these taxes they will become disheartened and want to fight against them instead of supporting them.
It is time for citizens of this country to decide what they can do better because politicians alone will not make the changes this country needs. For an inside look at what we are up against, Bill Bradley's We Can All Do Better is a great read. Bradley urges us all to make a change and explains why it is necessary. As more people take time to read and learn just where we stand and open their minds to what Bradley says this country may just take a turn in the right direction.
