Well, I am still heavily involved in politics.
I believe that the Democrats and the Republicans are both in power to advance themselves and their corporate owners.
That is why I support people like Ron Paul, who is a Republican, only for the access granted to him because of it.
And I'm talking about debate access, and news station access.
Actually Ron Paul, is just a main stream American, who believes in freedom, individual liberty, small government, and low taxes.
I say these things, so you will understand where I am coming from, and be able to put the following comment I will make in perspective.
If you are tired of politics, and must, for a time, withdraw into yourself. then you can do no other than to prepare for hardship, protect your
family, and promote the values that you hold dear. Worry not about the world, but worry and work, to protect yourself and your kin.
Then after your "batteries are recharged", you may decide to fight once again, for whatever you believe in.
And in the meantime, don't forget to take time out "to smell the roses".
There are many worthwhile, and positive aspects of life, that we fail to recognize during our lives.
Stay positive, and never lose hope.
