Political Whirlwind

Standard

Today things are ugly and I can no longer succumb to it. I believe I have figured out this political whirlwind. It is ugly.  It is hate. We need to work together. We need dialogue. We need political compassion. 

Liberals pick on every little thing Trump and his Administration do. I completely get it. I’m a liberal, but I’m starting to see the bigger picture. 

Conservatives support Trump and pick on everything Liberals do. It’s a hateful world. Why can’t we all just get along? Why can’t we agree to disagree?

I was getting to a point of obsession. I was reading every point my Liberal supporters wrote. I began to notice the negativity. I did see the one sided reporting.  Then, I would read the Conservative side and there is less news as they don’t report all things Trump says (because yes, it is an embarrassment). It’s a strange “political whirlwind” that all humanity is buying into.

I’m done. What is done is done. Mr. Donald Trump is our 45th President. He is NOT the best,  but he won by default and there is nothing we can do about it. Yes, we can protest. Yes, we can resist. Yes, we can attempt to impeach him. But will any of these things change our world? No. If we impeach Trump, his administration will still be in office. So, what can we do during these hateful times? During 2017-2020?

I believe in getting our voices heard (via protests, e-mails and letters sent to our Congress), but the most important thing to do during this hateful time is to love one another. It’s hard when there is hardly a gray side. It’s either black or white. Liberal or Conservative. 

We need to use all of our political energy to get ready for 2020. Let’s get our ducks in order. If you are a Conservative and believe Trump is “making America great again”, bless your soul. You will only learn as time goes on. But, you need to stop hating Liberals. Accept what is and do your part as an American. America is about freedom, so let the Liberals do what they will do. Try to put your feet in their shoes. Stop all the hate. That’s it. 

If you’re a Liberal, stop attacking Conservatives. Just like us, they have the freedom to speak their voices as do we. We have to be the role models for our future. We have to show compassion and kindness. 

I can only do my part and it’s very tough. As a Liberal, I have gotten asked if I’m even legal! This is where we are today! It’s sad! (for the record, I’m 8th or 9th generation. My family was part of the Mexican land before we lost to America. A treaty was signed that allowed those Mexicans to continue to live on their homes and become U.S. Citizens once the two countries were divided. My family was part of that treaty, so, yes, I’m legal). As a Liberal, I’m called a “whiner, dumb and stupid” Is this really American? No. Is this good for our Country? No. Then STOP! 

I have read on social media sites that spew hate. Lets accept what is. Lets do what can to make America great again and go from there. We already know whose in charge. We know what we need to do. Other than that, lets kill everyone else with love, kindess, hugs and smiles. 

Namaste.


“Americanality”

Standard

“Americanality”, an urban word I describe of “what is”.  I no longer live in America. America is what I was born into, a world that was full of hope. My America is now morphing into a world of physical and mental toxicity.

Americanality-Noun: A country built on bleeding blood. A country built on immigration. A country that fought for “the people”. A country that slowly woke up and fought for equal rights among race, class and gender.

Americanality-Verb: A country of people who can be grouped into different thought processes. Most people are either humanists or inhumane. Humanists have an interest to pursue and educate ourselves and others with knowledge in order to not make the same mistakes from our past. We want to grow to a higher level of thinking in order to help ourselves and the world. It is having concern for the well being of others and the world we live in. 

The latter is the opposite. It is greed by putting fortunes and wealth before the well being of humans. It is digging up death no matter the cost (i.e. oil). It is racism.  It is watching a group of racists march, join and shout “white power”, but what does that even mean? “White” is a color, NOT a race or culture. 

Americanality is today. It is the year 2016 up to 2020. Many humans have fought and died for equal rights. Susan B. Anthony fought for the rights for women to vote. And look at who women voted for in our Trump vs. Hillary election!? This is why, in my eyes, America is no longer America today, it is now “Americanality”.

How could a sane, conscious women vote for a womanizing man? A man who does not have respect for the female gender. It is an insult to the women who fought for our voting rights! A disgusting insult!

We all know the story of the famous Mr. King who fought for equal rights, peace and justice among people of color. Or better yet, for all humans who were socially and economically disadvantaged. During his time period, he stood up and resisted all hate and racism that affected humanity. He empowered each soul who suffered. Today, no matter what race, class, gender or color you are, you can go to school, get a college education, you can sit on a bus and you can go everywhere and anywhere! Sadly, things may change. 

On a positive note, there are many of us “Americans” who are consciously aware of what is going on.  We can resist the toxic ways our society is going toward. As long as you read and always check your facts, you will be okay. 

Educate yourself and your kin because four years can be as long or as short as reality allows.  

My “Americanality” can and will go back to America, but we the people have a lot of work to clean up.
