Still The Same Man I Always Have Been…

05 Mar


It isn’t that I’ve anything against Democrats (and for the record, not all Democrats are “liberals”). It’s that I was raised and taught that if you want something, you WORK for it. You don’t expect it to suddenly appear and be given to you as if money grows on trees.

(For the record, I’m registered AS a Democrat)…

A friend sent me a message this morning, expressing that he wishes he could draw because if he could… He’d draw the “Bernie”-mobile, all beat up and travelling along the freeway while siphoning gas from another car that was moving along beside it.

He’s right. THAT is how socialism works, folks. It’s what Bernie, nice as he is, stands for and it’s everything this country is NOT about.

We’re supposed to be about giving people “opportunities.” The chance to reach for their dreams — BUT to achieve those dreams, THEY must be the ones to put in the real effort.

You do not get something for nothing; in fact, you justifiably get no more than the effort you’ve put in to earn your prize.

So no, Bernie, the socialist, is not the answer. Nor is Hilary who has proven herself untrustworthy on so many occasions. Yes, I know. Those nasty Republicans have had her in their targets for years and years now, trying to rid Washington, D.C. of she and her husband. I totally understand that lame argument and I’m not arguing that the Republican Party was/is doing so in the interests of the nation.

You and I both know the vast majority of (if not all) politicians do not do such things in the interests of their constituents, because… Well, cause NO elected politician in EITHER party, since being elected, has EVER done anything without being motivated by some self-interest and/or greed.

For the politicians of today and many years past, it’s always been about preserving the power they won and securing more of the same. It’s about lining their pocketbooks with more currency. Greed and the lust for power is the human weakness — and our elected representatives display such frailty each and EVERY day!

About The Author

54-years old and determined to sail through life with a smile (but sometimes brash as hell). LOL. Born and raised in Carlsbad, New Mexico but having lived more than half of my life in Texas. Raised with a strong faith in God but describe myself more as simply a faithful person rather than a Christian. (Too many people rely on their religious 'beliefs' as an excuse to maintain a closed mind rather than emulate the loving nature I believe Jesus Christ did represent.) Registered as a Democrat but fiscally I'm probably more likely to identify with the Republicans. Am equally disgusted with both parties at the moment and tired of the status quo in Washington, D.C. I'm a spiritualist who believes you should reach for your dreams and believes you can attain them, for the only thing that really stands between you and your goals ... is yourself. Favorite quote of recent is "Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, the present is a 'present' (a gift)..." —Author unknown

      Thanks, Edison. I apologize for the late response (and approving the comment so late). I’ve just been really busy and my blog took a back seat for a while. I hadn’t been over here to check for comments so am just now getting around to this. But again, thank you so much for your comment and for your praise. It’s appreciated.

      All my best,
