The Pickens PlanPosted on Oct 1st, 2008 | Category: Blog
I took a Physics course in the early 1980’s (on alternative energy resources) and then became concerned with our over dependence in fossil fuels. Years later, I am more convinced and see our addiction to oil and dependency on unfriendly sources as affecting our economy, our ecology, and especially our national security. Even the application of passive solar home and business design can make a big difference.
Common Sense–the power of right, not might. Too often Government is composed of followers that tend to be protectors of power and pushers of the status quo. Their lack of courage leads to a monopoly of mediocrity. We need thinkers, innovators, entrepreneurs, with courage and the vision to excite and inspire. I feel that Mr. Pickens may be one of those leaders.
Running my own successful business for 20 years, has taught me not look to Government for much of anything– as they have forgotten they are elected to represent and serve “we the people”. I prefer to put my faith in the best ideals and integrity of the American people, and definitely believe as Margaret Mead said to “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever does”. I am also a screenwriter, and one day, when I sell my award winning feature screenplay, “REBIRTH”, I will put a large portion to contribute to this essential cause.
