Hey Tx, I for one think it would be an honor to live amongst the people out there, in the land of big agriculture: I mean, you look at the people
around you, and they're like "Hi, we feed the entire nation
". That's cool. We'd be dead without those folks.
Right now I'm in Colorado, living amongst the people out there, the land of - amongst many other things - Lockheed Martin. I look around at the
people around me, and some, through silent eyes, they're like " Hi, if we feel like it, we kill people from space
. Scares the heck out
of me, but its a part of America too.
The point is its a complicated world in the 21st century, and we all depend on each other, for food, and avoidance of space death. There's all kinds
of powers at play, but our humanity stands unique in dealing with it. We are going to be okay going forward.
What I really feel though, is the real stuff, the fundamental stuff, doesn't have to be complicated. The fundamental stuff is this:
The people who tell you you're dirt are pushing your buttons
. Its that simple, that strait forward. But the only way you will ever know it is
if you get out, you meet those local liberals, you give them a big smile and some kindness, and talk to them. What you'll find out is they are a lot
like you. In fact the more you get out there - hell, go to San Francisco if you want - what you'll find out is that Americans are pretty much all the
same. Its a very complicated game of button pushing that tells you different, that tells you to take your eyes off the power players at the top and
start obsessing on your neighbours and family members with different ideas.
The evolution of America at this point is people tuning out the noise, and going out and seeing for themselves. What they're learning is that at the
end of the day, we are one people, just as we always were.
