As I have traveled through my life, I have wondered many times just what it is that people fear about Independents.
Is it because we are free-thinkers, who determine for ourselves where our path leads us?
Is it because we are not locked in to a certain ideology that determines who we are or what we follow?
Is it because we learn something new every day, far ranging from any political or religious based dogma, that we can't be "controlled"?
I really don't know, but I can assure you it's not wicked or evil to think in many different directions at the same time.
It's very enlightening and liberating to be able to see viewpoints other than your own.
I know where I have been in my life, now it's a question of where am I going for the rest of it.
There is a lot going on today, and a lot of it is because many can't see beyond today! Most people are so stressed out just trying to survive that tomorrow will have to take care of itself.
The only reason I wish to get involved in the political world is because I see this division for what it is, and that is 2 sides trying to impose their beliefs on one another. It will not work much longer! We must get back to being able to talk and compromise! None of us are ever going to get all we want, but we can at least get part of it and allow others to get part of what they want! Why is that so difficult?
That's why I stay Independent, because I have lived a decent life so far and will continue to do so until I am gone.
Then I will no longer care.
May peace be with you!
