Politics and Peace

I have been feeling drawn to write about this particular topic. One part of me wanted to and the other part said it was like opening a can of worms. I think the worms are already crawling everywhere though. I have a vision for the blog in one sense to keep it positive so to speak and for it to inspire people about their health. I however am not feeling so inspired positively with the way the world is currently. I guess you would have to be dead to not feel the collective pain circulating all over this place today. I think many factors are contributing to the negative energy that is engulfing us, and being the empathetic person that I am its bothering the hell out of me.

I have pondered getting off of social media because I hate scrolling through the news feed and seeing one attack after another on what Trump is doing. I know that running away from any problem though does not solve it. I guess I have decided to run head first into this one. I saw a person comment on a picture of Ivanka Trump and her husband this morning. Above it she wrote ” Children of the Corn. ” Really???  I mean to me that is beyond disrespectful.  Ivanka Trump to me is a beautiful person who yes has been given some advantages that many of us were not given. She however didn’t have to do positive things with them but she has. She is a role model for young girls today including my own daughter. Why be jealous of those who have more?  they should fuel and inspire your desire to want to have more as well. There is a gap though I feel between desire and action with people.  I think there is a large number of people who would say what Trump is doing is disrespectful on many levels. I have to disagree and feel they are allowing fear of the unknown to drive this level of resistance. I feel that this world has gone for many years now with the lack of a leader.  I was talking to some friends at work yesterday who both agree that it really is the same principle as an undisciplined child. The world at large has become undisciplined, disrespectful, wild, lazy, addicted, and detached. When you have a child who is unruly and the parent finally wakes up and starts disciplining it. What does it do?? It throws a massive tantrum and revolts. I think the world is throwing a massive tantrum right now at large. I think it is sad that this country has been allowed to go where it’s gone. Welfare is ridiculous and at all time highs. Even though the Obama supporters will tell you that Obama helped lower welfare rates and unemployment. I am sorry that I can not see that at all. There are able bodied people, young able bodied people collecting food stamps today living off the government.  Maybe if people would work they could have a sense of pride for what they own and not take so much for granted. I have yet to understand anyone who is in support of the health insurance today. I have suffered royally with the insurance over the last 3 years especially. My daughter had spine surgery at Shriners hospital that costed well over 100,000 dollars. Do you want to guess how much of that was covered by Humana???? Not even 1 cent. The deductibles are sky high and the majority of the American people are paying and paying to only end up paying more.

I feel to have any kind of order in America Trump is doing what needed to be done 8 years ago and maybe even before that. We have to weed out those that are of a criminal mind in order to have a safer country. I’m sure it is extremely hard for those that are legal that are having to suffer some of the scrutiny and consequences right now. When I was in school I was a very good student. I’m sure everyone of you remember the kid or kids in the class that screwed it up for everyone. I used to think as a young girl, why do I have to suffer because they are acting out. Why do I have to have things taken away that I deserve because they are disrespectful. I think that good people are having to suffer some yes, but if you look at the bigger picture. It is for a good cause. That cause is to hopefully keep America safer. We should be proud to live here and I think America is a desirable place to be. However we have to have rules and we have to have some boundaries due to the criminal sociopathic minds that exist today. I do see it from both sides and know that it is not black and white.

When I think back to 911, I recall that those terrorists did not mind blowing themselves up one bit for the mass destruction that they caused. It is extremely sad to me that there are people in the world born into such indoctrination and cult like mentalities. They are out there though and in increasing numbers daily. I feel only light can cast out darkness. We will never be able to cast out darkness if we chose to stay in a dark place ourselves. I commend Trump for  wanting to protect our country and our people from such acts of violence. Instead of everyone throwing the tantrums that they are throwing and marching and protesting. Why can’t people let it go and look inside themselves. Look inside of you and ask yourself what can I do to make this place better on an individual level. Is marching making this place better?? In my opinion it is a waste of time and does nothing but tie up the streets. We need to stop projecting the unhappiness we have at individual levels onto the leaders in the world. Trump has nothing to do with the way you treat your neighbor or what job you have. If you love all people and want to be kind to Muslims, African Americans, Indians, Syrians; whomever. Then you should do just that!! If people were asked to sacrifice their individual incomes to house and care for an immigrant. It would be interesting to see how many people would raise their hands. When you imagine your own life being compromised to care for another person other than your own family.. would you want to do it??  I gave the example just last night in conversation. I care for the homeless people in the world and feel sorry for them. I could offer them my couch, my TV, my coffee table, and everything I have in my living room. I then would be sitting in an empty room. I care deeply for animals and can not stand the fact that people continuously breed unconsciously. I could march against that, but until each individual wakes up and realizes the suffering they are causing it will never stop. America is in such debt we are sitting in that empty room.  I think if you have a surplus to give, give it by all means! America has become depleted though and needs to rebuild and restructure itself. I think that our new president is trying to do that. 

I can only ask that people look inside themselves at their own sources of lack, their own source of hatred, and ask yourself how you got there? Look at the dynamics in your own family unit. Work on fixing you, and I promise you will no longer feel such a need to project hate onto others. Social media is a great platform for many things, but has become a breeding ground for insults, projection, and hatred. This was not intended to attack anyones opinions only to express my own. I feel in order for me to be authentic I have to speak what I feel. If you took the time to read this, thank you, please comment!
