This is Why Eric Cantor has the Pulse of us All

As I have stated here before there are several essential things that one needs to fit into what this blog is all about, the Contemporary Conservative (http://thecontemporaryconservative.blogspot.com/2007/10/contemporary-conservative.html ). One of the current crop of Contemporary Conservatives now in Congress that exemplifies this ideal is Eric Cantor, Chief Deputy Republican Whip in the House of Representatives. The one key element that needs to happen to reshape the political landscape is that politicians need to begin to foster solutions to our country’s issues from the very people they serve regardless of the particular ideology of that constituent and not believe they have all the answers. We as a country need to stop being Republicans and Democrats and start being problem solvers and thinkers. To this end Eric Cantor’s Solutions Factory is proving to be a goldmine in idea generation in solving our society’s ills. Can we (or should we) implement all the ideas as stated on the website?...I don’t think so, but as with any brainstorming activity these ideas can be honed and merged and streamlined to come up with viable solutions that can be enacted to benefit us all in the long term. The conservative mind always thinks about the most viable solution that will benefit the masses in the long term as oppose to the liberal who looks for feel good short term solutions that makes us all warm and fuzzy inside but leaves little in terms of actual solutions. Eric Cantor’s Solution factory, as well as his blog and website in general, is leading the way to bringing the power back to the people to solve our own issues and not looking to the government to solve them for us. The preamble of the constitution states, “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America” We the people created the government, we should manage the government and we should finally give the ideas that fix the government (and Country.) Eric Cantor’s new Solution Factory goes a long way in fulfilling this ideal http://www.ericcantor.com/solutions
