“Where Have All the Leaders Gone…”

August 21, 2011

Opinions

Many of you are probably familiar with this title or it’s author Lee Iacocca. I never read the book when it first came out but upon the suggestion of a dear friend I decided to pick up a copy. What amazed me the most is that here is a book published in 2007 while we still had a Republican in the White House and now four years later most everything Mr. Iacocca talks about could be applied to our situation today in 2011. In a way this is a sad statement about the leadership in our country as we now have a Democrat in the White House and not much has changed.

We’ve all heard the saying “Talk is Cheap” and “Actions Speak Louder Than Words.” These sentiments are reflected in Mr. Iacocca’s book, and are unfortunately very prolific in this country of ours at every level. I say at every level because as this country continues to face tough times, instead of seeing real action taking place to help create jobs and drive economic prosperity, all we hear about is committees and councils that are being formed by our leaders at the national, state and local government to look into matters. Isn’t it a little too late for that. What exactly are these committees hoping to discover while the unemployment rate in this country climbs. Where is the accountability for their actions or inaction. As Mr. Iacocca states so often in his book, “where are the results?”

Lee Iacocca was right. We can do something about it and we should. If we don’t agree with our leaders, get rid of them and find some who hopefully will step up to the plate and take action.
