The last few days I’ve been going about Bluffton, Ohio (pop. 3,875), putting our new flier up on various bulletin boards (coffee shop, laundromat…). And we’re asking our supporters to do the same in their towns, counties, etc. Amidst the swirl of Super PAC million dollar ads, and major Party candidate million dollar ads, well, we thought we’d come up with a different approach. Call me a minimalist… Besides, we think all that money could be better spent on, oh I don’t know, maybe the people of The Democratic Republic of the Congo. Seriously. In doing some foreign affairs research on that country this week, I learned the grinding poverty and overcrowding there — among 19 million people in eastern Congo — is leading to starvation, disease, extreme violence… The crisis here has largely alluded world attention, in part, because people in America, for instance, are so fixated on all the over-hype around: a presidential campaign. Just think how far, say, that Super PAC money would go in feeding the Congo’s hungry, bringing medicine to the sick, and helping quell the violence… Note: During a talk to a student group at Mississippi State University, I said our administration would focus on bringing a lot more help to the world at large.
