Confession

I have a confession to make, at one time, I considered myself a Republican. Not that I ever voted for one, but that's a whole different story. I really don't like politics. I agree with the whole notion or theory that the people that should be in office are the ones that don't want to be there. Why, one might ask, well I feel that at one time, their views and values were more in line with mine. I think I'm pretty conservative when it comes to a lot of things and I agreed with a lot of what they stood for.

The older I got, the more this changed. But again, I'm not a fan of politics and politicians, but I have come to realize that it is necessary to get educated and involved in the issues. Well I'm rambling now, but I can't wrap my head around how childish and ignorant people are acting these days. It all started with the town hall meetings, then the tea party, now Democrats are getting death threats and their homes are getting vandalized. They're getting spit on and called, well, words I probably shouldn't repeat, and all for doing the right thing.

Some people would say, that it isn't the first time, agreed. These are just a few fringe lunatics and ignorant people, right? An elected official, a colleague would never act like that. I think we've all seen that proven wrong...I don't know...I just felt like ranting.
