Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
Summer is passing us by, and I wish I had gotten out more. But I can’t stop reading about Trump, and the news, and all the other things. It’s the same with the way you write about your movies, your art, your passions. Mine is politics.
I may be addicted to politics, and I write too much about the same things. But it’s not all about me. It’s for the things that can be done right for the future. I may criticize things that some of you may stand for. Things like 57 flavors of gender, or mainstream movies, or using unsafe platforms like Facebook, but I always follow up with my reasons. Why I think certain things are wrong, or how these certain things can be improved.
I’d like to think that I have a big impact on the world at large, but the truth is, I’m just one small voice stacked with millions of others.
Recently, there was an article on Salon about lonely Democrats. It’s a really long article blah blah blah, blah blah blah, holy shit.
Here’s the only juicy part.
People I know, who are in one way or another people like me, people who have changed so much over the years, people who used to be heavy metal rockers but who are now new age life coaches, people who used to be bartenders but who are now world renowned artists, people who can play the guitar as well as they can pound nails and lay tile, these people who are like me despair at the rootlessness of the Democrats, the damaged “brand,” the absence of a “message.” But it’s not just about political tactics and strategy. It’s about isolating ourselves at the tables of the latest hot restaurant or behind the reflective walls of social media, where we can be alone with ourselves and people like us, and we can see out but they can’t see in. It’s no wonder that Trump’s 35-40 percent base of support seems so impermeable. The pundits tell us that his voters feel collectively resentful and forgotten and left behind. Well, they’re right. We’re the ones who left them behind because we’re forever in transit to someplace new, chasing cool stuff, changing ourselves, altering the country, moving on and not looking back.
It was a condescending article that was generously sprinkled with recollections of roses and wine. 17 paragraphs about the author blah blah blah blah blah, until it gets to the end where it takes a massive switch and it ends with something about Trump (voters).
That my friends is a scam! That is fake news. That is the mainstream media running out of gas.
But the good news is that Democrat voters don’t need to feel lonely. Hell, they dont even need to write 17 paragraphs about being lonely. Just subscribe to my blog and be entertained daily.
I promise you, I’m not going to scam you like this guy on Salon did with his readers. You won’t be disappointed!
