WHERE HAVE ALL THE REAL LEADERS GONE?
Posted By: Geauga Constitutional Council 07/29/2013 @ 12:48 PM

This is an old article but still remains true today. It needs to be read.

 

Remember Lee  Iacocca, the man who rescued Chrysler Corporation from it's death throes?  He's now 82 years old and has a new book, 'Where Have All The Leaders  Gone?' and here are some excerpts.

Lee Iacocca Says: 

'Am I the only guy in this country who's fed up with what's  happening? Where the hell is our outrage? We should be screaming bloody  murder. We've got a gang of clueless bozos steering our ship of state  right over a cliff, we've got corporate gangsters stealing us blind, and  we can't even clean up after a hurricane much less build a hybrid car. But  instead of getting mad, everyone sits around and nods their heads when the  politicians say, 'Stay the course.'

Stay the  course? You've got to be kidding. This is America , not the damned  'Titanic'. I'll give you a sound bite: 'Throw all the

bums out!' 

You might think I'm getting senile,  that I've gone off my rocker, and maybe I have. But someone has to speak  up. I hardly recognize this country anymore.

The most famous  business leaders are not the innovators but the guys in handcuffs. While  we're fiddling in Iraq , the Middle East is burning and nobody seems to  know what to do. And the press is waving 'pom-poms' instead of asking hard  questions. That's not the promise of the ' America ' my parents and yours traveled across the ocean for. I've had enough. How about you? 

I'll go a step further. You can't call yourself a patriot if  you're not outraged. This is a fight I'm ready and willing to have. The  Biggest 'C' is Crisis ! (Iacocca elaborates on nine C's of leadership, with crisis being the first.)

Leaders are made, not born. Leadership is  forged in times of crisis. It's easy to sit there with your feet up on the desk and talk theory. Or send someone else's kids off to war when you've  never seen a battlefield yourself.  It's another thing to lead when  your world comes tumbling down.

On September 11, 2001, we needed a  strong leader more than any other time in our history. We needed a steady  hand to guide us out of the ashes. A hell of a mess so here's where we  stand.

We're immersed in a bloody war with no plan for winning and no plan for leaving. 

We're running the  biggest deficit in the history of the  country. 

We're losing the manufacturing edge to Asia, while our once-great companies are getting slaughtered by hea lth care costs. 

Gas prices are skyrocketing, and  nobody in power has a coherent energy policy.  Our schools are in trouble. 

Our borders are like sieves. 

The middle class is being squeezed every  which way. 

These are times that cry out for  leadership.

But when you look around, you've got to ask: 'Where  have all the leaders gone?' Where are the curious, creative communicators?  Where are the people of character, courage, conviction, omnipotence, and common sense? I may be a sucker for alliteration, but I think you get the  point.

Name me a leader who has a better idea for homeland security than making us take off our shoes in airports and throw away our shampoo?

We've spent billions of dollars building a huge  new bureaucracy, and all we know how to do is react to things that have already happened.

Name me one leader who emerged from the crisis of Hurricane Katrina.  Congress has yet to spend a single day evaluating the response to the hurricane or demanding accountability for  the decisions that were made in the crucial hours after the storm. 

Everyone's hunkering down, fingers crossed, hoping it doesn't  happen again. Now, that's just crazy. Storms happen. Deal with it. Make a  plan. Figure out what you're going to do the next time.

Name me an  industry leader who is thinking creatively about how we can restore our  competitive edge in manufacturing. Who would have believed that there could ever be a time when 'The Big Three' referred to Japanese car  companies? How did this happen, and more important, what are we going to  do about it? 

Name me a government leader who can articulate a plan  for paying down the debit, or solving the energy crisis, or managing the  health care problem. The silence is deafening. But these are the crises  that are eating away at our country and milking the middle class dry. 

I have news for the gang in Congress. We didn't elect you to sit on your asses and do nothing and remain silent while our democracy is  being hijacked and our greatness is being replaced with mediocrity. What  is everybody so afraid of? That some bonehead on Fox News  http://www.foxnews.com/   will call  them a name? Give me a break. Why don't you guys show some spine for a  change?

Had Enough? Hey, I'm not trying to be the voice of gloom  and doom here.  I'm trying to light a fire. I'm speaking out because  I have hope - I believe in America. In my lifetime, I've had the privilege  of living through some of America 's greatest moments. I've also  experienced some of our worst crises: The 'Great Depression,' 'World War  II,' the 'Korean War,' the 'Kennedy Assassination,' the 'Vietnam War,' the  1970's oil crisis, and the struggles of recent years culminating with  9/11.

If I've learned one thing, it's this: 'You don't  get anywhere by standing on the sidelines waiting for somebody else to  take action. Whether it's building a better car or building a better  future for our children, we all have a role to play. That's the challenge  I'm raising in this book. It's a call to 'Action for people who, like me,  believe in America '.. It's not too late, but it's getting pretty close. So  let' s shake off the crap and go to work. Let's tell 'em all we've had  'enough.'

Make your own contribution by sending this to everyone  you know and care about. It's our country, folks, and it's our future. Our  future is at stake!!
