Scrooge for President

In this season, I can not help but see the similarity of many Republicans to Ebenezer Scrooge. To be a good man of business seems to be their only criterion of worth. The poor...are there no workhouses and prisons?

We do not need smug and mean-spirited self-righteous men of money running this nation (or this world). A country is not a business. It is a community. It exists to serve the needs of its citizens.

I suppose I have become more 'liberal' with age. I've seen that life isn't fair. Some say, 'So be it, I have mine.' But what they have is really of little worth. Share it while you have the time or you'll miss Christmas once again.
