Resigning from POLITICS

I’ve come to the conclusion that the UNITED STATES is just way too political. It’s in every discussion, every status, every thought.  You people need to drink more wine and sit out in cafes discussing really important things – like maybe  what you’ll be having for dinner with your FAMILY this weekend, or where your next little vacation, or time away will be, or maybe God’s GOODNESS . SOMETHING.  ANYTHING.   Just not POLITICS.

 

HIgh on the list (in a graph)  on FRANCE is :   time spent with families, time off work, 

Low on the list was Politics and Religion. 

 

I love this.  I hate Religion .  But, I do love God and his Mercy.

 

 

I”m resigning from Politics.  From ANY THING remotely close to Politics.  Just wanted everyone to know.  And if you catch me “slipping” – please remind me that I said this. 

 

If you post anything remotely political on my wall I am deleting it. Except my cousin Bob, who is very funny and if you can make me laugh while sharing a political thought, I’ll handle that.

    We have to care about our government and we have to care about who we elect to run our country. This is how we leave the world a better place for our children. It’s all about balance.

    • Voting for your conscience – passion even, I understand. No problem there. But then leave it.

      There is such a thing as “ad nauseam” – that’s what we’ve got here……………….

        “Those who don’t study history are doomed to repeat it,” George Santayana. The politicians we elect are the ones who decide if we send our children to war, the ones who regulate Wall Street which affects retirement plans, the ones who decide future health care. Discussing politics and being overtly involved is incredibly important. How do we learn if we don’t discuss it. Besides talking about one’s faith, I can’t think of a more important topic but as Mark Twain said, “If we all agreed on the same thing, there wouldn’t be horse racing.”

  2. Well, now that you’re French, I guess it’s ok. Politics are fine, but voting is better. The only way we can really change our government is by participating, not gripping and airing ‘our’ opinions. Words without action is a useless activity.
