Notes on the Republican National Convention
There will be change, no matter what.
We will have a feisty war hero who has served this country for decades, paired with a fiery woman who has lead in Alaska. Or we will have a feisty black man who inspires and believes in
change from the bottom up, paired with a seasoned Catholic congressman.
Both will serve and work for reforming and rebuilding the failed parts of this country's economy, its relationships between its citizens and immigrants here, and its relationships with others
across the globe. Both will work for the greatest good in making change in our energy
sources and educational systems.
HOW each will do this, though, is what we must all be really curious about, and really weigh.
What has shaped the perspective and capacity to lead of each Presidential Nominee?
What shapes and governs our individual perspectives and thus influences most greatly how we vote?
What is each of our top issues, and how did that issue get born?
What do we agree on in this family?
Is there a coalition or platform that is the readership of this list- serve?
How can we see all sides or facets of the issues most pressing our family?
How can we see all sides or facets of the issues most pressing for our country? (How might these greatly differ or align? Who don't we see in the Borgmann Family Blog? Who do we?)
What assignments or research might we have to do, in order to grasp the fullness of what is before us?
How much time or energy do any one of us have to investigate anything?
What do we want our budget to look like?
How do our allocated resources reflect our priorities?
