Some time last year I stopped watching and listening to any news that is meant to fire up the base. Hell I am already fired up so I don't need anyone working me up more. I try to stay as educated on the issues as I can and make decisions based on facts and results. In other words it may piss me off that O is playing golf but if the country was doing alright do I really care?
Seriously where do we go from here? I have never seen us so divided and frankly it scares me a bit. On election night I made note of all the states that voted way left, those that voted some left and those that voted right. I made a promise to myself to do my best not to spend a dime in the left states. I have gone as far as looking at my drive from Boise to Needles a few times a year. I can go through Utah and avoid buying gas in NV or CA.It will take me longer but I might feel better about it. Am I being unrealistic? Hell I don't know but I know I have to put my money where my mouth is.
I have tried and tried to put myself in the mind set of a liberal and I cant do it! For the life of me why anyone would think that this path is good for our country must be insane, or has a personal agenda and not looking out for the whole. I was raised by a blue collar dad who worked part time in the union and he is and always has been a republican. I try so hard to tell young kids today that everything has moved so far to the left its crazy. Today John Kennedy would be considered a republican.
I am sorry for the rant but I am looking for some direction and not more information to fire me up! What can we do to help get our country back on track?
