Promoting the General Welfare
On our way to Princeton, KY I spotted a woman walking
on the edge of the highway.
She was on the tall grassy sloping far edge that falls quickly into the ditch along the highway.
She walked as though she had one leg taller than the other.
My reaction was quick in thought as to how to improve this outrageous situation.
I have seen this many times in this rural area and I am sure that there is not too many areas where
this uncomfortable situation would not happen to an individual walking the edge of the highway.
One thought came to mind and Laurel thought is was outrageous and far too expensive.
The answer is a third lane on the highway for
postal carriers, school buses, ridden horses, horse drawn wagons and foot traffic.
Normal traffic in this lane could be fined a minimum of $1000 dollars for wandering into or using this lane.
Thus keeping the lane safe and clear.
School buses and postal carriers would have to stop or safely move out of the lane when
ridden horses, horse drawn wagons or foot traffic was using the lane.
Four wheelers using the lane would have to stop or completely move off
the highway when confronting postal carriers, school buses, ridden horses, horse drawn wagons or foot traffic.
We cannot think of the expense as an option for not giving this life saving third lane its proper place in our society.
We give Rome the credit for creating the one lane highway
to move across the land.
I must assume two lanes came with the advent of the automobile.
The future will give the third lane on all main state roadways and U.S. designated roads and thus
promoting the general welfare in our united states.
That is why I want to be a U.S Senator for the State of Kentucky.
We the People of the United States,
in Order to form a more perfect Union,
insure domestic Tranquility,
provide for the common defence,
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.
That's a lot to do for any U.S.Senator
