What you learned as a kindergartener can help you as a politician

If you really stop and think about life in general, you learned some pretty good rules in kindergarten that will help govern you through all of these "life in general" moments.

I wish our politicians and those aspiring for the highest office and highest honor our country has to offer would remember some of the rules they learned in kindergarten.  You see they learned most of what they need there and would do well to study them again.  

 For example:
  • Play fair. Don't knock folks down either verbally or physically. 
  • Don't hit people. This one is good!  Hitting folks below the belt physically, emotionally, verbally, or mentally is just plain wrong.
  • Clean up your own mess. You know the old saying, "You're responsible for your own actions."  That means if you make a mess it's yours to own and yours to clean up.
  • Don't take things that aren't yours. That means you don't take another man's wife or another woman who isn't your wife.  You don't take someone's reputation and run it in the ground.
  • Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody. Yes.  That means when you say something "hurtful" you say you're sorry.  Better yet, don't say it.
  • Wash your hands before you eat. Clean hands and a clean heart are always well beloved.
  • Flush. Sanitize everything you can.  Flush dirty words, dirty deeds, and everything dirty down the drain.  Filth corrupts.
  • When you go out in the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands and stick together. It's a big world out there.  You need to watch out that you don't get run over.  So hold hands and stick together with friends for security.  That goes nationally as well as individually.
  • And remember that one of the first words you learned to read was  - LOOK.  Don't forget to look around you in awe and wonder at the wonderful World God has created for us to inhabit.
