A personal POLITICAL RANT. Read ON or exit NOW!…You’ve been warned.
In today’s screwed-up Political World too many people think “if you don’t agree with or think like ME then YOU’RE WRONG”! LEFT (DemocRAT/Socialist) or RIGHT (Republican) WING, LIBERTARIAN, INDEPENDENTS (just want to stop someone else) it really doesn’t matter but “YOU’RE WRONG”! Right!…
As for me well I lean more Republican than anything. I have been known to vote for an occasional DemocRAT in my time but they have far & few between. And most of’en end up runnin’ as a DemocRAT cause they know they can’t beat The Republican Candidate but feel they offer more that the other DemocRATic Candidates do. I will not Vote by markin’ the PARTY BOX at the top of a Ballot. I will sit there, how ever long it takes, to go thru each race bracket & vote for the Candidate I want to represent me. And like I’ve said ” I have been known to occasionally vote for a DemocRAT”.
Hum-m-m-m…interesting…from Ecclesiastes 10:2 (NIV):
As for me personally “I don’t really hold Politicians in a high position”. I refer to ’em on a regular basis as “Liars, Thieves, & Crooks”. There may have been ONE but I don’t recall who it MIGHT have been to come out of Office with less Personal Wealth than they went in with. Very few exit without attaining the ranks of Millionaire Status. Most, by far, exit as Multi-Millionaires. They are famous for Passin’ Laws & Bills that affect the General Population/Voters that put them in office. But make sure to leave a clause in them that, of course Deletes Them, their families, & staffs. Why? Go figure…
The DemocRATs: “as a DemocRAT, I accepted the outcome of the referendum” (ahh-hahaha). I have been told by more than one person (one of whom I respect very much) “I/we didn’t leave the DemocRATic Party…they left Me/Us”. I wonder if that was why Senator Richard Shelby “Flip – Flopped” from a DemocRAT to a Republician? Oh I’m sure there are some “Ole Yellow Dog DemocRATs” still out there. Those that would vote for ANYONE put on a ballot (say “A Yellow Dog”!). One of my Grandfathers was one of ’em. Just hangin’ on to the Old Party Standards. But…for the most part Today’s DemocRATs/Liberals are more Socialist & transitionin’ that direction more each day . Yeah yeah…deny, deny, deny!
The Republicans: “a person advocating or supporting republican government”. Oh I know there are some I just couldn’t vote for. They are commonly refereed to now days as “RINOS”! Most of them know/knew they are/were too Conservative to be a DemocRAT, too Liberal to be a Republican, & just too Confused to be an Independent or Libertarian.
Then there are The Libertarians: “a person who believes in the doctrine of free will”. Are just too full of themselves they just can’t seem to commit to either Major Parties Platform because Certain Planks just don’t FIT them. They will vote for “The Man” & know, for the most part, the Independents “don’t stand a chance in Hell of winnin'” a major race.
Our form of Government is a Republic (“a state in which supreme power is held by the people and their elected representatives, and which has an elected or nominated president rather than a monarch”). It is NOT a Democracy (“the practice or principles of social equality”). As set up by our Forefathers in The Constitution. But most folks don’t understand that.
Please understand these are my thoughts, opinions, & positions. Do I consider myself 100% right? No but it’s the way I feel. Just as YOU think you’re RIGHT & others are WRONG. Fat chance! The difference is I can & will admit it & YOU/Most WON’T! You/Most immediately deflect to another topic hopin’ to best another in an on goin’ debate/argument where there are rarely ever winners. It’s just your opinion – vs – someone else’s. Well, this is MY opinion!…”Hold’em Hook”!…..BG>
