Give Me Love Over This
Politics as usual....
People who know me, know me as a staunch Republican. Very conservative, straight-laced, and, most importantly, a loather of liberals. I've done plenty of ranting and raving in the past 2 years or so. I voted for McCain and Palin and I sternly believed that Obama was NOT going to win the 2008 Presidential election. But, I was so very wrong. And of course, like any other time I'm wrong, I became angry. I jumped on that "Anti-Obama" wagon, and I held on for dear life.
I always listened to conservative talk radio and watched conservative opinion shows on FOX. I was, and still am a big fan of Hannity, O'Reilly, and especially Glenn Beck. Not to mention the thwarts of local conservative talk show hosts <Shout out to Bill Colley! A friend and very talented talk host on WGMD.> I do live in southern Delaware a.k.a The Mid-Atlantic Conservative Capital. Conservatism is EVERYWHERE down here. Everywhere except Rehoboth, of course. Fo those of you who do not know, Rehoboth Beach, DE is the Gay Mecca of the east coast... move over San Francisco, Rehoboth is right on your coat tails!
Anyway, I know it seems like I don't have a point, but I do: My point is this: It's exhausting. All the anger, the fear, the arguing...and for what? What the world needs is peace, tranquility, happiness. And we will NEVER find that in politics. Instead of focusing on our differences, maybe we should just focus on how to make the world a better place for our children and future generations. How do we do this? I'm not quite sure... If I knew, I wouldn't be sitting here blogging...I'd be trying to fix the problems of the world. BUT, I do know this... we can start just by loving eachother... no matter what they believe politically or what their religion is. If you disagree with me, that is fine. It would make me a hypocrite to think otherwise. Like my grandmother always said: "It takes all kinds of people..." We all just need to learn to respect that.
