He’d also get my vote if he were running for office. Thankfully, he’s too concerned about America to throw his hat into what has become a political battle for brinksmanship in which right and left fight for gain instead of coming together to solve problems. In the end—we ALL lose
Check out page 5-A of USA TODAY July 2. It’s a full-page open letter from Schultz that make the most sense out of anything I have read.
In fact, he’s poignantly brilliant in his straight-forward approach, ideas, and language. He’s asking all of us to join the conversation with #INDIVISIBLE, a tag that Starbucks will do its part to collect and amplify our voices.
He is asking ALL of us to put citizenship before partisanship. He knows our deficits are more than financial. We can’t wait for Washington.
I love this line: “In 2012, America needs to win the election more than either party does.”
What does the American dream look like to me? It looks like leaders in business who are willing to take a stand for working men and women, for returning veterans, for children and the elderly, for education and innovation. It is neither right nor left but a shared vision for the future.
When both sides of the aisle cross their arms and only want to defeat the other—to discredit and to see who can shout the loudest and bring in the most money—we are then divided and fractured.
Schultz is right. It’s time for us to become #indivisible.
