I’m absolutely dreading what the news and chatter will be on Wednesday. I’m already thinking of ways to avoid the internet. I just know no matter what, there will be an abundance of smack-talk leaning one way or another.
As I write this, I’m waiting for the President’s State of the Union Address to begin. I’ve been more interested in political events this past year than ever before in my life. I’ve learned a lot about the workings of the world. And I’ve learned to keep my mouth shut.
I’m not a political person. I like facts, not attacks. I listen to all sides. I research and investigate. But no matter what stance I take, I’d be certain to offend and alienate people.
So I don’t discuss politics.
I have my basic views: what’s right is right, what’s wrong is wrong. The Bible tells us to simply let our “yes” be “yes” and our “no” be “no”. (Matthew 5:37). Not, “I’ll scratch your back, you scratch mine.” Not, “What have you done for me lately?”
So I don’t understand politics.
I’ll end up voting for who I believe to be the best Candidate. I don’t care about crossing party lines. I care about my Country. I will study and watch and observe and learn and choose who I believe in.
So I don’t trust politics.
I believe in the American Dream. I strive to do the best for my family. I don’t resent anyone else who does the same. I like doing my best. I like doing my part and not being stifled.
So I don’t agree with politics.
I don’t like excuses. I don’t like lies. I don’t like games. I like honesty. I like responsibility. I like authenticity.
So I don’t like politics.
And Frankly, My Dear… that’s all she wrote!
