A week or two ago, my 18 year old mumbled "I should break out his window" as we pulled into the convenience store parking lot. I said, "What?". I
had no clue what he was grumbling about.
He said, "That guy has a Trump sticker...i should break out his window". Not being serious, obviously. Its the hyperbole of an 18 year old. So i
say, "But you don't like any of the candidates....why pick on Trump?"
He said, "It not because he supports Trump. Its because he supports the election. Im against the whole election"
im sitting there, and I didn't know if i should be amused at a joke, or stunned at the clarity of this insight. " Im against the election, too", I
think to myself.
Before that moment, I didn't have a way to express my feelings on this whole farce. But I think that now, thanks to my knuckleheaded 18 year old
son....i finally have put a finger on it. The bar is at a new low....and it seems to be following a strong downward trend. At the expense of
anything resembling real leadership. I won't go into fingerpointing the reasons I see for this....but 90% of it falls squarely on the public in
