Behave like statesmen, not politicians

I have come to understand that many in Congress exhibit black-or-white thinking when attempting to solve state (and national) budget crises. Black-or-white thinking is a common characteristic of adult children of dysfunctional families. To bring our state and national budgets to some semblance of stability will require budget cuts and increased tax revenue, not one or the other.

It is well past time for our leaders to stop behaving like politicians for their parties, including their use of black-or-white thinking. We have a dire need for our leaders to exhibit more appropriate statesmen-like behavior for our states and country, and indeed, to other issues at home and throughout our world.
