I am just going to say this: I am horrified at the way this primary is happening. What the actual F is going on? This is to choose the presidential candidate to RUN FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. The next POTUS, I mean I feel like I’m watching a bad new Netflix series, not the good ones I’m used to. I am honestly terrified that this is the landscape of 2016. There is so much I love about the United States but there is also so much that needs to be re-evlauated from EDUCATION to the environment to tort reform to the healthcare nonsense. This country is filled with brilliant minds, beautiful people and OUR CHILDREN.
Why can’t we all take a step the f- back and realize we do not need so much hate and negativity. Why can’t we all also come to grips that we are capable of doing great things as long as we can find some common ground. When everyone is grasping at straws to get a vote we get a whole bunch of people who don’t even know what the true platform their maybe candidate is running on. When we have violence at conventions and hateful words spewing all over Facebook – it’s a terrible state and I’m TERRIBLY sick over it. Everyone wants that big flashy “I did this” instead of the “this is what is best for our country.” I’m so sorry people but at this rate the history books will not have the best stories. Let’s get real – people are googling how to leave the United States…
What kind of country – what kind of WORLD are we setting up for our children? I really do want people to take time to look at who would be best for our country, who we would be proud to have running for office, someone to represent us around the WORLD. Open your history books people, we’ve already found out that certain things put us on a bad path, why would we want to repeat those things, expecting a different outcome? I mean, what is driving people’s thought process here? I really feel like I missed something crucial – I understand people want change but not thinking about consequences is what got us here. It’s so hard to look at my beautiful children and think that any progress we’ve made could be squandered; or any future progress can be diverted. It’s so simple, get back to the basics. Like a bad diet; if you change it slowly you realize big change. When you do the next “fad” diet you end up with rapid weightless followed by a sleuth of other issues because you didn’t have a BALANCED SUSTAINABLE DIET, you also typically end up in worse shape than when you started.
Also, for the record. My husband is an immigrant. Some of my best friends are immigrants even more are FIRST generation. America is one giant pot of immigrants, and it’s those differing ideas, those fresh genes, those new traditions and forward thinking that has made us great, given us an edge. There is a lot to be said to be the country people flee to instead of flee from.
I’m beyond proud to be an American. I’m proud my children are little mixies and I’ll be proud when everyone realizes we need to create a world that will set them up to create real change and create amazing relationships. Off to do my part in raising my little humans who will know to be grateful, to be human and to be kind and thoughtful of their impact on this world.
