You know, I'm just a bit disappointed today.
Not too mad, or anything - The rant section is where I vent out anger, and this is not anger. It's solemn contemplation about how this nation could
improve when those with the loudest voices would do all they can to deny progress.
The Media in general... Along with celebrities, past presidents including Clintons, Obama, Sports heroes, and others are all in unique positions -
They have a large fan base. People listen to them when they speak, these people receive an amount of coverage no average citizen or group could hope
to receive - And what do they do with this coverage? They spread more hate.
Why is this?
Why do we not have more people who contemplate the position they are in - And try to promote progress?
I can already see people responding, blaming the left, blaming the right - But that's just it. This is not needed. It is not reasonable. It's not
even a depiction of reality. There's A LOT of common ground we can work on before debating the smaller details.
Our country needs more jobs, less regulation, less taxes, more freedom.
And no, I don't mean Trumps vision of all of the above - I really don't believe one man, or one cabinet can actually achieve all of this. I believe
that it takes both parties coming together, and citizens coming together to agree on core concepts - Things that will help everyone. A better economy
- More jobs, higher wages, a better standard of living - responsibility to our people and environment- These ideas truly are in the best interest of
people on all sides.
Why get hung up on the details?
If we bring in enough jobs to employ all able adults - Everyone benefits. Doesn't matter if you're a minority, a majority, if your currently living
in poverty, homeless, etc... An America extremely interested in it's own future is the America we need.
If we create legislation that helps everyone - There is nothing to argue.
But, unfortunately I see people being just as divisive as they've always been. Instead of talking about prosperity - Reducing crime, increasing
wages, creating more jobs and careers, and the like - We're going to get hung up on how much ammo a magazine can carry, or what term an abortion
should be able to be performed -If at all.
A major hint ? A population that is less divided, has more money, contains less inequality, has better education , and less of a gap between the rich
and poor... Is a population in which those other issues diminish at a huge rate.
But, unfortunately, some joke of a person like Whoopi goldberg is going to get on CNN and tell us that we need to stay divided, and divided we just
might stay.. Unless we as citizens make the choice to be different.
So, let's choose to be different.
