I don't understand this world and I don't want to. There is so much hate, obsession, and a hunger to control. If I could put a face to all the self absorbed humans, I fear I would be walking among zombies.
Politics and religion have always been touchy topics, I remember my grandmother had a sign above her door that read " No talking about politics or religion ". I was taught as a small child to listen to what another person is saying. Ask questions for understanding, you may walk away enlightened and of course your opinion may stay the same. If the other person respects themselves and you they will listen to you as well. If they do listen to you the conversation will end in peace between the two people. But that can only work if you respect a person's right of choice. A Freedom preserved through the blood of Americans. Wars will come and go because that is the power struggles of nations. You can create law's to ensure that people have equal rights to pursue and obtain their dreams. But a nation cannot govern what should come from the inner soul of a man, woman, or child. Abuse of authorities has become a burden to the people. Some blame the law, some blame colors such as red or blue and the struggle continues to shred the society of a nation. I look at those representing the people and stand in utter shock at the peoples dismay. These representatives are fat from the bounty of the commoners. First Timothy 6:10 "For the love of money is the root of all of evil" If they're not rich they are not considered qualified or experienced enough to lead a nation. These people are wealthy and experienced in greed, lust, lying, bribing, cheating, twisting the truth, and blackmail. Nixon wiretapped to get what he wanted. Under Regan the National Security Council became involved in secret weapons transactions with Iran, ... 49 year old Clinton used his power to elicit sex from a 22 year old intern. Bush brought in the Iraq war and oil controversy. Obama the comander in chief left his men to die in Benghazi like a coward. Trump is boastful, arrogant and doesn't care about your feelings he cares about money and making money and if leaders aren't going to supply a rich nation to do that then he will.
Franklin was walking out of Independence Hall after the Constitutional Convention in 1787, when someone shouted out, “Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy? To which Franklin supposedly responded, with a rejoinder at once witty and ominous: “A republic, if you can keep it.”
Rome fell over night, I wonder sometimes if the clock is ticking toward our fall.
I wonder what kind of a difference it would make if the qualifications for representives were the annual median personal income
of $33,706. I don't know, do you? Do you think we are picking the right people for Americans to vote for? After all they have to be loaded to run for these positions have expensive fund raising resources. Joe, from the trailer park can't even afford the filing fee to run...lol and he could probably talk better for what I need than someone who's never missed a meal because they're waiting on payday. Put up a big smoke screen in front of the people keep them hungry and they'll keep eating your shit. Absolutely shocking the depths of decay.
