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.
I'm not a citizen of the USA, but I'd say, "Sure it OK to be OK with our (your) system and our leaders. But the beauty of it is is is also OK to not be OK. You don't get locked away a political prisoner, or 'sent to Siberia' for voicing that opinion. To me, that makes it very OK.
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?
I have to say that I did not think either of the people we had to vote for, were worth voting for. I decided that I really did not want either representing my country. I love this country intensely and want better for it. I did decide that I would support whichever was elected though. We should not be out trying to tear the country down because we did not like the one that was elected. I hope we are not going to regret this.
Eric, unfortunately cheering (or jeering) for our political leaders is not like taking sides at the Super Bowl. Whoever is in office, you have to hope and pray that they do their best and that all goes well. If the POTUS "fails", gosh darn we're going down the drain too--he or she is just leading the charge.
So, to answer your question, not only is it OK to be OK with our system and leaders, but you honestly HAVE to be. This is one case where even if the decision didn't go your way, you have to hope that the winner WINS.
I may not fully agree with these opinions. We can feel it OK only partially because we have to get on moving and not hinder the movement. You can agree with some points and disagree with some other points of the same person. So, you are only partially Okay. And, spending millions and millions of dollars is a very bad thing. One should not feel it OK.
NO! Most world leaders are nothing but little spoil brats who had everything in life growing up and also wanted the things of others. They waste good money fighting stupid wars which they themselves manifested. They make it difficult for the little man to succeed while putting big bucks in their pals pockets. They are liers, cheaters and will sell their mother's soul for a vote.

system as it is currently? There are people using EBT cards, living and eating better than honest, working people who are constantly struggling, putting food on the table and roofs over their heads. Number one, there should be a more stringent reinforcement of workfare programs for able...

Do you think it's better to post an OK hub every day, or a really good one once a week?
