CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FEBRUARY 25, 2014

         A COMMENTARY SUNDAY BY BOB SCHIEFFER OF CBS NEWS EXPRESSED HIS FRUSTRATION THAT WASHINGTON DOESN’T WORK. HE BLAMES BOTH PARTIES, THOUGH AS A LIBERAL I’M SURE HE BLAMES REPUBLICANS MORE.

         THERE ARE A NUMBER OF REASONS WASHINGTON DOESN’T WORK. I DISCUSS SOME OF THEM AND WAYS TO MAKE IT WORK IN MY NEW BOOK CALLED “WHAT WORKS: COMMON SENSE SOLUTIONS FOR A STRONGER AMERICA.” IT WILL BE PUBLISHED IN APRIL ON THE 30TH ANNIVERSARY OF MY COLUMN. YOU CAN PRE-ORDER IT NOW AT AMAZON.COM

         THE MAIN REASON WASHINGTON DOESN’T WORK IS THAT TOO MANY PEOPLE ASK TOO MUCH OF GOVERNMENT AND TOO LITTLE OF THEMSELVES. WITH SUCH A DYSFUNCTIONAL TRACK RECORD, WHY DO PEOPLE KEEP TURNING TO GOVERNMENT FOR EVERYTHING, BELIEVING IT CAN BEST SOLVE PROBLEMS?

         WE ARE ASKED TO PUR FAITH IN BIG GOVERNMENT WHEN IT DOESN’T WORK AND TO NOT HAVE FAITH IN A MUCH BIGGER GOD, WHO DOES WORK WHEN WE TRY HIM.

         AS PAUL SAYS IN ROMANS 8: GOD HAS BUILT FUTILITY INTO HIS CREATION IN HOPE THAT THE CREATION WILL TURN TO HIM. ARE WE READY? I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
