I figured that since most of my posts consist of poorly constructed paragraphs I might as well pick the random category and give it the appropriate title of ramble. 8-)
Firstly, I cannot wait till the elections are over. I despise the negative campaigning and long to hear someone say something decent about someone else or at the very least if they are going to run for office to tell the voters what they themselves stand for on issues that are important to US ctizens. Instead, candidates are well aware that they aren't necessarily keeping that information from the public being as their voting records are available for anyone who takes the time to look into how the candidate votes on the issues. But how many really do such a thing, I wonder. I do as a matter of principle being unwilling to just pull a lever for a party line candidate.
Truly I desire to have the Republicans maintain control of the House and Senate. Even with the current state of Congress in Republican control, it has been a hard road for this administration due to the obstructionist tactics of the Democratic leadership and Democratic representatives. It will only get much worse if they come to power. So very many of their leadership are sold out to special interest groups and their agendas and care not a whit for our Constitution. Many Republicans as well, though they as a group have a platform that seeks to honor the Constitution as well as protect the lives of the most innocent among us; namely the unborn.
However, I do not fear it or despair of it because I believe with every fiber of my being that God is in control of it all. It doesn't matter that I cannot explain how it can be that He is and things seem so out of control, but there it is, I simply do. This doesn't mean, of course, that it won't bother me if things go the wrong way for pro-life, less government control, more tax breaks, etc., people like myself, because it will. It simply means that I will continue on fighting for the innocent unborn, writing, calling, and supporting pro-life and family legislation, as well as refusing to trash anyone I disagree with. I have such disdain for the lack of respect that the Democrats show for the President that even after all these years I still cannof believe that they not only continue to do it, but seem to feel justified in doing so! Our media is at the forefront of this disrespect and has shed any pretext of not being biased such that they are blatantly in-your-face and simply don't care.
There is so much that the media leaves out from their reporting that they are truly obligated to report and don't because it might just make people think less of a Democrat, period. For instance, back when I was a voting Democrat, I sincerely believed that they were as 'poor' as I was and fought for my 'kind', but come to find out that many of these reps have as much money or more than the Republicans they continually criticize as being rich and for the rich. Shame on us if we take that on the face of it and believe it. The truth is that the Democrats use that to continue to pull in the votes of minorities and those who profit from the social programs in place today. Never mind that they in no way identify with the lower and middle class population of the nation.
The Democrats would have more credibility with me if they were more human. By that I mean they are continually acting as if they are above reproach on anything and constantly being outraged and appalled at any and all the shameful behavior of some of the Republicans over these last few years. The big problem with acting like that is you are definitely destined for a fall; it is a human inevitability. They hold an advantage there, however, in that the media is sold out to covering for them in every possible way. Therefore, unless one is an actual truth seeker, you will read or listen to the media Democratic puppetry, believe it, and repeat it to yourself as well as to those who hate our president along with the media and yourself; continually feeding off of it. It is almost like situations in families where members aren't speaking one to another. The resentment is there, the negative talk, the annoyance with the person(s), but you would be hard pressed to even know what the situation was that caused the rift in the first place.
Hate has no place in a society such as the one that America by the original intent of her founders desired. Greed, covetousness, selfishness, pride, these were human traits they were well aware of, indeed many of them owning slaves in direct violation of the very Constitution they themselves wrote up! It has always blown my mind, and probably always will, that grown men looking at another human being like themselves save for the color of their skin, could convince themselves that the other was inferior to themselves! Native American, African American, Chinese, Irish, exploited by so many arrogant and ignorant people; but not all, not all at all! Those who made up the 'not all' are the reason America became great in spite of herself. I I refuse to embrace the teachings of my youthful schooling to disdain my own country and trash my own President. I will admit to her wrongs and will be proud of her rights.
It makes no sense to be motivated by hate. What possible good can be accomplished when you are motivated by something so negative and destructive as hate? Isn't hate what brought the suicide terrorists to NYC? Can American citizens be so deluded as to believe that somehow we 'asked' for that to happen, or that our President made that happen deliberately? Believe in such ideas is as ignorant as one can get, in my opinion. How hypocritical to accuse the President of being a hateful terrorist himself and then hate him yourself? It would be funny if it wasn't so scary because it is so true! That is exactly what is going on in the USA today. Watch Senator Kennedy or Senator Schumer when they speak about our President. There is no respect, none. Worse, you can clearly see they hate the man! And the insults and the judgmental attitudes they have as if they live such exemplary lives and have erred not a whit in their entire political careers!
Clearly so much of politics seems like such dirty business, but there are quite a few actual statesmen and women in Washington today. They continue to stand for the right, for the Constitution, for the truth, for the innocent unborn, for people like me. And there are plenty of youth coming on up as well who will, in a few short years, hold places of influence and political power, who will help to bring about righteousness to our government where it is oh so desperately needed.
Ramble over. 8-)
