Waterbombs

I dislike politics, so I might be ignorant here. I entered the room waiting for America’s Got Talent to resume 😉

So, now I’m just wondering, isn’t attacking the other party’s candidates from the platform of the Republican National Convention like throwing muddy water bombs into your fountain? These allegedly like-minded individuals (who blatantly attacked one another’s characters during the debates, incidentally) are there to confirm their delegate and then splash around in the fresh water – celebrate.

Maybe I’m confused, but who at that convention would oppose or disagree about the other party’s candidates? At this point it’s not about the other party. Shouldn’t they stick to their point? :p

I guess not outside my world. This is why I tune out until after the conventions – I can find the facts about the candidates’ characters on line without all the drama.

Goody, AGT’s back!

  1. “Under democracy one party always devotes its chief energies to trying to prove that the other party is unfit to rule – and both commonly succeed, and are right.” – H. L. Mencken

    They talk about the failures of the other party to avoid talking about their own failures.

  3. What you describe is a serious problem with our politics in the United States and it afflicts the extremists both sides of the debate.

    This element forgets that healthy political systems require that people practice the skill of respectfully disagreeing.

    From my perspective, the republican party is dominated by an angry people who show no awareness that civilized compromise is the only way we can survive as a nation or as species.

    We once had a social contract in which citizens understood that everyone gets some of what he wants but no one gets everything.

    Our system was never perfect which is why our greatest Statesmen refer to making a more perfect Union.

    The core of our strength as a nation is E Pluribus Unum

    The community is not asking people to give up their liberty.

    We’re asking them to share it with the rest of us.

    • Thank you for saying so, Vikey. I was very uncomfortable commenting on anything political. Communication and unity are more my forte, not politics. Me bored + keyboard = unpredictable 😀
