To some people, power is a noun. To others, it's a verb. Andre Carson
Hoping is not a course of action. Neither is wishing. Praying is another conversation.
A course of action is just that - a scheme, by itself or amongst several, to accomplish a mission.
Courses of action that are simple; easily explained; understandable; adaptable; flexible; supportable; and most importantly executable enjoy a higher probability of success.
In General Semantics jargon, that has absolute applicability, "The map is not the territory."
Those orders are action plans (that detail a scheme, a course of action). Action the operative word. Think verbs.
What's missing in America today?
A cohesive core.
And that becomes the mission - rebuild the core.
Simply, in five paragraphs, but not SMEAC...
Trespassers - evict (all).
Repeal - erase (Obama).
Unfriendlies - eviscerate (enemies).
Money - energize (capitalism).
Power - embolden (America).
In other words, our 45th President must not be noun but verb - someone who acts, who issues orders - boldly, confidently, decisively - and gets things done.
President Ronald Reagan had an action plan: "Here's my strategy on the cold war: We win; they lose."
Though that was yesterday.
Today, for lack of verb(s), we're not winning.
Can we win again?
That's what this election is all about.
We can, if playing our cards right.
Simple as that.
Such as things are and continue, rebuild the Corps, too.
