You may have heard “status quo” during this time of heavily pumped politics. In case you don’t know the definition of it, it means “to stay the way things are”…”keep the current situation the same”.
Apply it to politics. Of course no career politician wants anything to change. This is why some republicans are fighting against Donald Trump so hard. If things change then ALL THE MONEY that goes for their pleasure, the planes, the trips, the expensive clothing, and the perks that go along with being a politician…might be taken away! Things might change and all that makes them want to be career politicians might go away! democrats are concerned too.
I am neither republican nor democrat. I am an American. I am neither conservative nor liberal, but a fine mix of both that upholds my personal beliefs and philosophy. I am neither rich nor poor. I am white and was born into a middle class family (it would be poor now). My son said I was beautiful. I don’t think so. I believe it was my heart and positive attitude that made me liked by many different types of people – White, Mexican, Black, Asian, American Indian…. whomever I got a chance to share time with was to me, was a human being worth getting to know. I was taught I am NOT the judge of humans. I was born to love God and others.
I was also taught the difference between good and evil, manners, and given the patience to get to know someone before deciding whether I wanted to continue as friends or not. I was taught NO ONE HAS THE CHOICE OF WHERE THEY ARE BORN, WHAT COLOR THEY ARE, and OR WHAT CULTURE THEY HISTORICALLY ARE FROM. NO ONE HAS A CHOICE IF WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE, IF THEY ARE GENETICALLY HEALTHY OR NOT, AND WHAT HIS OR HER PARENTS FINANCIAL STATUS IS! That’s the truth!
Of course we all begin adapting to life reflecting the values and thoughts of our parents, and other family members and those who participated in our lives often. But there is a point wherein we must decide for ourselves what path in life we will take…the high road or the low one.
I have separated from the initial thoughts that made me begin to write this morning. I don’t write every morning “just to write”. I write when I have passion about a subject, or feel it is God-sent, or important enough to take the time to sit still!
This started off with the intent of stating as citizens we have little real choice about anything expect on a personal basis within our minds and choices. We are presented with whichever multi-million dollar candidates “they” (not positive who they are) hand over to us peasants.
So to decide whom to vote for this year for president is simply a choice between one millionaire and the other. A man or a woman who has already been selected for us. for us. Someone who wants to keep the “status quo”, or someone who wants to upset the apple cart and make some changes (that may seem frightening to some individuals, and career politicians, for sure!)
I won’t vote “just because” one of the candidates is a woman. I am a friend snob and only hang out with people who I believe are quality and truthful. I tried hanging out with “questionable girlfriends” – I couldn’t save them from themselves, and I couldn’t stay out of trouble! I would rather hang out with ME than people I cannot respect. (Doesn’t have anything to do with money or race!) As far as hillary.
I am old enough to remember everything from Tennessee to today, and the clintons are soooooooooo NOT as the media and the way they like to portray them. So she’s out! Her motto should be “I will LIE and DENY, unto death do we part”.
I liked lots about Bernie Sanders, but in the end he sold out.
I am reading everything I can get my hands on about Donald Trump. I do like the “tentative” cabinet he has selected…or at least the one mentioned on line.
The truth is I am favoring Donald Trump thus far. So many are afraid he will be radical and things will “topple”…. I don’t think that is a bad idea. I know there is a silent majority who have been not voting, and hold back about the fact things are not better – they are not better at all!
For as many “accolades” as obama lovers give him (and I really tried the first four years) I have seen a radical increase in racial tensions…. I am old enough to remember that the racial problems for many years have been on the decline until a few years after he actually took office. If you think about it, “tension” in many areas has increased in the last eight years.
I will always be upset with him for not declaring, he is not black – he is mulatto. I have no problem with black! I have NO problem with mulatto! I have two EXQUISITE grandchildren who are a mix of two cultures…. I love their mothers and am proud of them. I will defend them to the death! As well as my mulatto grandchildren – and all those I love! I just think if he were truthful it might have shown he is NOT RACIST against white…he never acknowledges his white!
Enthusiasts listened to him speak and he did speak eloquently. He promised change. People were tired of war and he made promises that sounded as if he would unite the country. Think about it. Do you really see unity within the country?
He did pull troops out of Iraq, but only to loose footing in that county. Strife began again within the borders. All those USA patriots who died, died for nothing.
His accomplishments include releasing long term prisoners; over 500 of them. If you know anyone/or have friends who knows anyone that has been in prison long-term, you know they are changed forever. They are institutionalized. That is not to say some can’t make it, but the majority (statistics show) are still recognizable as a poor sufferer of a system that really doesn’t want changes, and back in trouble within months, if not days.
In California (I only know about my state in this area) the federal government mandated releases from prisons because they were overcrowded. Well, AB109 has released over 30 people from prison a month in each county, and in my town the crime rate, violence, theft, rape, and a multitude of horrific crimes has increased substantially.
Giving Iran a stack of millions of dollars cash was simply an invitation to critical problems for our children. They did admit it was done about the same time as four people were released! I remember the last releases – for five criminals, we got one traitor!
hillary, as Secretary of State was equally as bad as obama. The discord in the countries she visited is horrendous, and the money she has taken from countries that believe in the abuse of women is substantial.
I hadn’t thought about it for years, but my mama was very interested in politics. At the time I was raising three children and dealing with an abusive husband. She had a scrapbook with all the incidents that the clintons were involved in from Tennessee forward. She told me that they were criminals before I knew anything about them.
Good grief. I didn’t intend to write this book. I just am sharing where my thoughts are and asking that before you cast a vote this November, THINK. STUDY. PRAY.
We really have two candidates…any other good person would not be able to have enough votes to sustain themselves at this point. It is the electoral votes that count anyway. That’s another story. We are a country run by millionaires and billionaires.
I know one thing I don’t want – I don’t want to be a part of the “new world order”. That signs a DEATH warrant for the United States of America – my country. I love being an AMERICAN first (my mutt historical information is secondary in importance.) BTW, I am proud to be an American Mutt.
Remember, THINK, STUDY, PRAY. Use the gift of intuitive feelings. We all have been given this gift. Recognize it.
Addendum: if you think I slipped and didn’t capitalize names that should have been, please know it is my choice, and I will never capitalize a name of someone I do not respect.
Also, I am not pushing you for one candidate or another – simply expressing MY FEELINGS, and what I know to be true. God bless and help us all, and all those around the world who are in need.
