Shit or get off the pot
I'm a realist, so I understand all the reasons given for why politicians dance around on these issues.
But real leaders don't make excuses. They just do what needs to be done.
They ALL know what needs to be done, but they are ALL looking for the safe route to the eventual goal.
It doesn't exist. So, if you are going to do it, just do it, or get out of the way and let others who are willing to try, try and get it done.
