Dude. The more I read, the more I understand why I enjoy reading your work so much.
I don’t stand dead center. I don’t think there truly is a dead center, not for me anyway. But my thoughts, beliefs, etc line up pretty closely to what you said. I think all politicians are liars, even the ones I like. I just like to hope they lie a little less. Hell, maybe they just lie better. I didn’t vote in 2016 either, for the same reason. And would have, for the same reason. If I had any idea, in this world, that our current resident in chief would have ever won, I would have voted. If nothing else, that election proved to me that my ass needs to vote, no matter what. I like to hope (there’s that word again) that if all of us who thought there was no way in hell he would win, would get out there this time, he won’t, again. If he does, then I’ll know it’s fucking rigged.
Spiritual beliefs are like penises, a lot of folks have them, but it’s not really a good idea to pull them out and wave them around in people’s faces. Though depending on the situation, that can be kinda fun too, I would imagine. If I ever woke up one morning with a penis, the first thing I would do is “helicopter dick”, just saying.
Boy I’m random as all hell today.
Anywhore…I love this post. You touched on everything I was raised NOT to talk about in “polite” company, but since I’m rarely polite, I love it. I think people need to realize that there is nothing wrong with DISCUSSING politics and religion. It’s when people want to shove either topic down my throat like an unwanted…(I’ll keep that one to myself) that I have a problem. I don’t come to your house selling dildos, don’t come to mine selling salvation.
Now that I’m sure my note has offended at least 90% of the population, I’ll mosey on to the next post.
Peace and love
