Since qualifying for the ballot in November, I have been doing a lot more thinking than I normally do. I have come to the conclusion that if we can not find a way around the divide we have in America, we are lost. Somehow, we as a people must overcome our disregard for one another for the good of the country. We are following the playbook of divide and conquer to a T. The next step you will not like, because you will have given away your freedom to an oligarchy and you will be the slaves, basically financially!
How we accomplish that, I don't know. But somehow, we must try. I have tried many times and many ways to overcome the deep-set attitudes of the people that I contact, and no one seems to want to change in the least. This is wrong! We are one people, like it or not. We will go down together!
I say again, get up tomorrow and look in the mirror at the reflection of yourself. Are you happy or are you hateful?
Are you giving or are you selfish and greedy?
Do you care about your fellow American or do you care only for YOUR needs?
If it is the second answer, then ask yourself why!
Why do I not care about others and their opinions? Am I blocking them because I don't like their looks, or do I just not care about them at all?
All of you have it within you to change, use it to come closer to the middle and at least listen. You still may not agree, but at least you tried! Put your biases aside for just a few moments and you might find that we have more in common than you think.
I will continue to try to bring people back from the brink. Please do the same!
May peace be with you!
