People Bashing and Politics. US Presidential Election.
Somewhere over the earth
Call it something else
I recently watched a discussion supposedly about Donald Trumps religiosity. It was not the intention of the question at all. The intention was to bash Donald Trump. I commented about the nature of the question and was laughed at as I did not join in with the bashing concept, I actually missed some would be humor. Bashing a politician or a lawyer and nowadays a doctor is common place. Bash a police officer and you are heralded as a great guy.
Did I tell you that I do not like our President of the United States? But by golly jingles he is president and I respect him. He is awesome. He is one of a few dozen men to ever lead this country. He is special and he rocks with my support. There are a few good and great men and women who are positioning themselves for the job in the future. They are all special and deserve my support. I will pick one one day. But boy the choice will be hard.
I am an American. I come from a more varied background than most. I am very well educated. My wife is an immigrant and my child a half breed. I live within eyesight of the Mexican border. I can converse in a few languages and I got pards from Asian to Georgian Black and Native Americans. My mama raised me to respect those that take responsibility for others.
By God I live in a great country.

My wife and children thank God that we are Americans
Take it from a man who has seen his share of failure
When you are on top, people want to take you down. I am not talking about the notion of power brokering. I am talking about the notion of "if I cut him down then I am better". Find a fault in a man who has "made it" and you lift yourself up a notch. Don't get all comfy in yourself, tear another down. I am sorry but that sounds like drunkenness to me.
Let us take a foursome. Bernie Sanders, Carly Fiorina, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Wow what great choices and what great people. Does that make you mad? Yes they have faults. Who does not. But wow do their accomplishments outweigh those faults. They are awesome Americans that deserve our respect. They stand tall and upright to espouse the best America that they can see. Just think of this, Senators, politicos, businessman do not get assassinated. They do not make life and death decisions for thousands. But they are willing to do so for our America. These folks stand up and are counted. They represent the thoughts of millions of us Americans. Wow oboy and glory. I could not do it, could you?
But you bash them because it is socially, within your circle, acceptable and laudable. That is sad. I like to say "my boy is best because...". Why say my boy is best because yours is a dog. Totally not true. But perhaps easier and makes us look better?
Bashing is cool and it makes me a little ill. Our country is great and it has taken great leadership to make it that way. And we chose them. This notion that they are bad is a big joke. They are all spectacular. Wow over 200 years without a coup or conceptual revolution. No attempt to forcefully over throw our government because the leaders were bad. (leave the "civil war" out of it that was different)We have it together because we have the best and the brightest willing to take on the "inconvenience" and responsibility of office. Normally we would recognize them as all insane merely to try to get into that office. Megalomaniacs and egomaniacs - duh and of course. Wow the personal belief in oneself to run for such an office is amazing - I wish I had it and then again I do not.
Pay me the moon and the stars and peace on earth, and there is no way I would run for that office. They all must be crazy out there.
Call me an idiot but this land was made for me and thank God for those who lead it or even try.
Don't tread on me
Admittedly I am just a low dog
I ain't got no say. I vote and I speak my piece. But I am amazed at my leaders. I do not buy that holllywood or mass media stuff. I got teeth and I chew my own apple. I am not to be reckoned with for I am just some salt of the earth. I could be trampled as well as respected. But I got respect. And that respect is for the men and women who strive to bring their vision for me.
O Walka Walka I may be conservative and I may be liberal, I may be Democrat and I may be Republican but I am damned proud to have those who choose to fight the fight be Americans.
