I know my prior post was mildly controversial. The problem is – everyone is angry today. And partisan. Many cannot see, understand or appreciate the merit of anyone else’s position or political persuasion. My mind is made up. . . . I’m angry as well. Thus my observation includes – me.
I like you question – intellectually and morally – those who don’t think as I do. How can they possibly. . . . And of course some will question me in that regard. How can Petersen think like he does . . . . This whole political anger thing is a disease. Which can be fatal.
If you have a school board in a town of 150 people that can’t get along – how do you expect to have people get along on a national, state or even city-wide basis? Isn’t there enough anger in the world? Every faction, country, party, religion, sect and individual – is right. No one listens to anyone else.
I’m sure if Abraham Lincoln was running for President today, he would lose. “Oh he has a high-pitched voice.” He’s homely.” “He’s not telegenic.” Hillary would lie about him. Trump would ridicule him. Sanders would condemn him. Sometimes an individual and a country need castor oil. Nobody likes it but it helps. What we don’t need is poison.
