So, after the SC primaries, and given a speech he made, there are some out there who are suggesting that Newt Gingrich might be in the running for a spot as Trumps’ Vice Presidential Runningmate.
Now we all know that Trump’s basic platform is, “Let’s Make America Great Again”… What if Newt ran on a similar platform, “Let’s make NASA Great Again”…
How many of you could get behind that ticket if Newt and Donald promised that Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton would be the first Americans to land on Mars? And by land, I mean, become permanent residents there. (ok, yea that’s hyperbole, neither of them should be allowed to go)
John F Kennedy really pushed America to the forefront of science and technology with his program to put a man on the moon. Newt would like to see both a permanent base on the moon, and a manned mission to Mars. Newt understands (even if he doesn’t really know it) something that the Book of Proverbs tells us about human beings and especially Nations.
Without a Vision, the People Perish.
Both Donald Trump and Newt Gingrich get this on a gut sort of level. In my personal opinion, the way to get America back on the right track, begins with giving the Nation a lofty, yet achievable vision. Lock that vision in stone as JFK did with the mission to land a man on the moon and return him safely, and America begins to correct its tragically self indulgent and narcissistic floundering.
Defeating Islamic Terrorism, sad to say, is not a noble and lofty goal, its a harsh and brutal necessity, its the kind of goal that makes a nation bone weary. What America desperately needs is a gloriously noble and lofty goal to aspire to, a goal that will lift us up so that the bone wearing task of defeating Islamic Terrorism does not leave us dead inside.
Now I have said my piece, what say you?
