Good Morning Scholars,
So I watched the Republican Debates last night.
It does not cease to amaze me that we live in the greatest country in the world and yet it seems year after year we have such a paltry selection of candidates to choose on either side (I’m independent) from for what some might consider the highest position in the land. And most of them are IVY league educated! SMH. To emphasize, I am not talking about who they are personally but just the “them” they present to the public in order to obtain this job.
I would so enjoy being in a position where all the candidates where SO amazing for the position that I just had a terrible time choosing which one. Oh Well, Dreams.
I did get to know a few candidates better from the debate and glad CNN streamed it free online, unlike Fox for the first debate. There’s hope for a couple of them. I would say although I could not, at this time, IMAGINE voting for him, that Jeb looked the most naturally presidential, but that’s practically in his DNA, so…haha.
I liked Paul’s comments on marijuana and crime/imprisonment in the minority communities although, I thought he overstoked on the medical marijuana sympathy route.
I thought Carly was articulate and liked her response to Trump about her looks (which was ridiculous for him to say;) but I think she should be careful about “womaning” us to death. Barack didn’t “black” us to death during his campaign and it obviously broadened his appeal. The president is leader of ALL, there is no room for special interest grouping in that position.
Let’s see, who else. I did like Carson’s logical, calm approach and polite disposition. I know that won’t do for many because they like the more untamed model (hence Trumps lead) but it would be nice if we ALL kind of took a bit of a chill pill in this nation. It’s a calming thought at least- ha! But really, we need to start valuing rationality a bit higher.
I enjoy dabbling in politics so I will be staying tuned for what’s to come for this election.
As a native New Yorker who grew up during the Don’s hey day, I’m always going to tune in when i can when he is on. I know he can be annoying but most of the time, he cracks me up and with that I will leave you with my FAVORITE TRUMP LINE of this presidential bid:
HA! Gotta love it! The sheer moxy! I’m not gonna lie, I’m using that one in my OWN life! Ain’t nobody got time to be always explaining or backtracking on what they say! Own it or keep your mouth shut! (ahhh, makes me miss NY!) In Trumps case he doesn’t keep his mouth shut, so he owns it (most of the time) and makes for great TV in the process! LOL!
What do you think? Follow, Leave a comment! Don’t be scared to talk politics and what is happening in our world! Good people NOT talking perpetuates nonsense and darkness in our communities and nation as a whole. These candidates are the people who will be leading the charge that affect causes many of us care about such as human rights, carbon imprint, national/world debt, world hunger, ecetera (list too expansive to name them all) so let’s be positive and have fun talking about it!
Light, Love, and Politics (be informed, get involved vote!)
