One thing in my life is certain, my baby girls will always love their daddy and I will always love them. When you really get down to basics, all Americans really love America and always will. I’m seriously troubled by the mass media exploiting the worst of both sides of the political aisle when it comes to every legislative or political discussion. Fox News is just as guilty as MSNBC with lighting the torches and passing out the pitch forks to the masses.
I’m not going to say one side is better than the other in this post but I find some of the media tactics pretty disgusting. One side of the political spectrum is raising the worst of the base so the other side retaliates, then it gets spun into hyperbole that has nothing to do with the original issue. Pick an issue, it doesn’t matter anymore. Our nation has become a media generated revolution waiting for first blood to be spilled.
Can we stop in the name of love for America. I hope we all at the least have that in common.
It isn’t so hard to listen, think, and come to the middle of the discussion without beating the life out of your political opponent when it comes to any issue that is an American problem that needs to be solved. We are all better than what we see and hear as the real debate.
