“Economics, economics. That’s all we ever talk about in this country. Well let me tell you. It’s not working.”
“We inherited a bad state of affairs.”
“If we could get the budget to show a surplus the people would be happy.”
“You reckon. I don’t. We’re sliding in the polls and you know why? It ain’t economics. It’s human rights, women’s rights, how we treat the lower paid and our youth’s education. It’s everything other than economics. What we need is a debate to see what direction this country wants to go. What we need is vision.”
Written in response to Charli over at the Carrot Ranch whose prompt: December 24, 2014 : In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that includes a vision. You can write your own personal vision and “fictionalize” it in the sense that you write it as if it already has come to pass or is unfolding right now. Or you can write the vision of a character. Dream big. dream bold.
