I may have a problem. Is it OK to be OK with our system and our leaders?


Maybe I am crazy but from early childhood I believed and still do that public service is a great and respected thing. I thought and think that both choices for President were wildly successful individuals. I think that Reps. are conservative and Dems. are progressive. On different issues I agree with one or the other. Any national leader has millions and millions of dollars spent on destroying them. And hashtags are the worst we can throw at them? Sorry folks my income is low but I love it here.

    Clive I just love people who express this almost anarchist point of view. My thirty something son has evolved to a stance very close to yours. I actually can appreciate it. I get it.

    However the dirty bastard swamp breeders do some good.

    Cool Tom. I have just been so credentialed and successful that I feel like I get these folks. A man at 65 plus who can kick butt deserves my respect as does a lady. Am I really so much better that I can pass judgment toward hell and damnation?

    Hi good friend. Your point is well taken. We really cannot get so wrapped up in acceptance and calmness that we fail to take proper action when required. Sometimes it seem "might is right" but it should be "right is might".
