Selling Hate in America

In America we have an ongoing experiment that began over two hundred years ago. The original idea was to break away from a monarchy and let the people rule themselves by first declaring a Declaration of Independence. A war for that independence soon followed and that is our history. Brilliant minds wanting the simplicity of freedom from oppression.

How they did it and succeeded was amazing. They gathered where they could and talked and argued out a plan for success. It was a simple plan that millions of Americans have had the great opportunity to enjoy every single day.

I don’t think anywhere in their thoughts and ideas was there a thought about how to hate other Americans. No, I’m pretty sure that they went beyond all means to make sure that hate was not in our countries founding documents. These were great minds that performed great deeds of courage and forethought. They sold America on what her future could be based on the consensus that everyone had a legitimate opinion.

Today in politics it is all about selling hate and finger pointing. That isn’t or never will be a uniting force for any society. Divide and conquer is all that it is all going to be about from here on out. Our nation is so fragmented that two people will walk into a discussion ready to beat the daylights out of the other first rather than come to a resolution of the discussion. What the hell happened to us? Somebody tell me what is wrong with this picture?

America is a unique country the world over. We have our faults and we have our mega huge pluses. If we are divided then we all have a problem. As a nation we always choose the side of right over wrong in international affairs and if we as a nation do not have our own affairs in order then our voice elsewhere should be mute.

Just my idiotic thoughts.
