Just a few thoughts on what I like in a sales call.

So, while watching the kids so my wife could watch the women's session of general conference, I came in to watch parts where I could, and I really liked this video. What's the best way to get involved helping refugees? (Whether here, or abroad?)

If there is a movement, I want to be part of it. ‪#‎depolarizeAmerica‬

"Hess is adamant that changing minds isn’t the goal of dialogue — it’s to recognize the humanity and the reasonableness of people on the other side."

I used to consider myself a Republican leaning independent. "Used to" being the operative words here. I evidently have much less in common with republicans than I thought I did. If Trump (Drumpf) can win this easily with the Republicans, then the Republican party is not what I thought it was, and I do not fit in there.

So 'merica, It seems you are upset about stuff. And there's lots to be upset about. People not being treated right, people without jobs, people going hungry, people getting hurt, and even people who can't afford that new phone when they want it. Everybody's got something to be upset about. So, now it's election year, so we all get to put on our red or blue glasses to see who we can blame this year. If you are wearing the red glasses, you can clearly see that America's never been in worse shape, and it's all because of Obama. If you've got the blue variety, you'll see that he's the one sane person in a den of Republican wolves at the capitol. Either way, you'll be right. Because life isn't perfect, and it's their fault. They should be fixing things. Why else would every single candidate that is running be running with the platform that they alone can fix everything that is wrong with this place? And the more wrong you see, the more radical of a person we need in office to fix things. So, let's find the most angry candidate, the one who promises to kick the most teeth, and yell at the opponents the most, and do all the things whether or not anybody else agrees. Let's find the most irate person, and put them in the most powerful office on earth. Because irate people fix things. Because if they are mad like I am mad, they they will fix things... Right?
Honestly, it is NOT the President's job to fix our problems. Yes, your political ideology might suggest that if things were done a little differently, things might be a little better. But the first thing we need to do is to stop blaming politicians for things in our lives, and just accept that sometimes life just stinks. Once we stop trying to blame all of the politicians for our problems, then we will be able to see a little clearer, and make better choices. We don't need angry people in office, or politicians who are trying to cater to an angry populace. We need politicians who seek wisdom and compromise, and will try to do the right thing. We may not see drastic change, but good change rarely comes quickly. Drastic change is rarely good. Despite Adam Smith's invisible hand theory, we really will find better politicians if we think less about our own problems when we vote, and more about what is the right thing for the President to do. (I know not everybody is like this btw.)
But what then? What about our problems? Well, I'm afraid problems aren't just going to go away. But once we stop looking to the White House for solutions, we might find better solutions closer to home. We might realize that we can be a solution to somebody else's problem, at least a little bit, and maybe they can help you with yours. And little by little, WE can put America right -- regardless of who's in the White House.
Oh... and by the way: if you put in one blue lens and one red lens, you can see in 3D! :-)

Hey Friends,
Voting time is coming again. I encourage you all to read up on the issues and on the politicians.
But what's more, I urge you to look closely at the other side. If you find yourself thinking that they don't make any sense, or that they just don't care about anyone but themselves, I would encourage you to look again. Both sides have very strong arguments in their favor. It seems to me that Republicans base much of their logic on the science of Economics, and Democrats base much of their logic on the science of Sociology. Both sides want justice, both sides want prosperity, and both sides want what is best for America.
I suggest you get a book on economics or sociology if you want to read up on them. Candidates won't help here, and neither will the media.
I'm not asking anyone to change parties, or their vote. But if you don't understand the strength of the other party, then you don't understand the weakness of your own party.
Thanks!
