Think Different

Hope and change.  It was the thing that Barack Obama had promised in his first run for the presidency.   We all hoped but change never came.  In the last presidential election his theme was “forward.”  I did not understand that theme and I doubt many others understood it.

Americans never learn.  We just switch back and forth between Democrats and Republicans hoping that there will be change.  It just never happens.  Whether it’s domestic issues (IRS investigations and the confiscation of AP phone records are the latest) or foreign affairs (the question is who knew what about Benghazi) the number one action in Washington D.C. is politics.

Most of us simply turn off those news items because they offer little accurate information unless you are interested in raising up one political party at the expense of the other.

Americans are being manipulated as usual.  We repeatedly fall for the same foolishness.  Thinking differently means not participating in group think.  It’s doubtful very many people will follow my advice.

  1. Hopefully, there are more and more people, just like myself, who are paying very close attention to the issues and what is going on in DC. That is why its so important that we at all times think of ourselves, as the ‘new media’. Within the last 6 months, I have seen a great upswing in new people on all the sites I visit. Not all of them are ‘out of fox land yet’, but they are paying attention and commenting, which is a good thing. The more attention drawn into the reality, not the fox news propaganda machine(can’t say any of them are much better, as in our country there is a law saying its ‘legal’ to lie on our news 2003) gets us one step closer to having enough people awake and paying attention to enact the changes needed. Thank you

  2. The very root of your writing whilst sounding agreeable
    initially, did not really settle properly with me personally after some time.
    Somewhere throughout the paragraphs you actually
    managed to make me a believer unfortunately only for
    a very short while. I nevertheless have a problem with your leaps in logic
    and you might do nicely to help fill in all those gaps.
    In the event that you can accomplish that, I would definitely end up being fascinated.
