...On a More Serious Note
I like to think of myself as an easy going guy who doesn't take many things too serious... and I don't most of the time. But I come today in the name of peace. Why? Because the election is coming up and election time seems like hunting season, and everybody is the game... and I think we all need to call a truce and respect everybody's candidate choice or anyone's decision not to vote. I'm not even into politics to begin with and usually stay away from it altogether. What's drawn my attention this time is how hateful people are becoming. No matter what, there is always going to be division among people. Unfortunately our system has been molded that way. People blame the our politicians for division, but the truth is it's going to exist on one side or the other. If politics are going in your favor, that means it's not going in somebody else's favor, therefore still creating division. You see, there is always going to be division in politics... so just let it be, but leave it in the ring. Let politics be politics... just stay human. Don't fight with your neighbor because of politics. Don't cut off ties with your sister because of politics. Don't disrespect the guy in front of you because of his bumper sticker. Remember, our politicians live in their own little world. We still have to share ours with those who we may not agree with. In other words... don't shit where you eat.
