Christmas of Frustration

When I conceived writing like this again, the concept was to delve into deeper thoughts and to discuss the undercurrents of what I see happening in the world…and maybe put some of my own philosophical ideas to print.

I am finding that increasingly difficult to do, because I am reaching a point where the things happening in the world just don’t make sense to me.

I was raised by traditional people. Conservative by nature, and lifestyle. My people are patriots, and have served in the US Armed Forces all the way back to the Revolution.

Needless to say, even with all of my liberal views; I am very familiar with the traditional Republican viewpoint.

Where is it today?

I mean, I know people still who are true Libertarians (in philosophy if not in party…the train wreck that has become). I even know a couple of Republicans who are true to the ideas that I walked away from as my world view evolved. Disagree as we may, I still view those people in a decent light…and they mean well for the country. The whole country. They are on the same “team” as us. They just have different views of how to make things better.

But those people are getting harder to find. Rather, those people are getting lost in a tangle of white nationalism, anti-liberal partisanship that is not part of our nation, its origins, or its ideals.

How else can you explain the continued support of what is currently happening?

Anyway, it is making it difficult to think about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in logical terms.

Lets hope some family time and reflection over the holidays bring some sanity to the world.

I need 2019 to have more stability.

We all do.

Have a Merry Christmas! (Or Chanukah, or Kwanza, or ¬†Eid Al-Fitr, or Yule… just be Merry.)
