This Political Season
It’s a real bummer, that’s for sure. I’m still torn up,. . .still vacillating. But the ache has turned to raging disgust on all accounts. IT AIN’T RIGHT! I wonder if all those ‘smart heads’ in Washington actually know what they’re doing to the rest of us. Most of us who vote feel that we should study the issues, carefully select the most suitable, honest and ethical person available to us and head to the polls on voting day. We love our country – want to do the right thing.
This kinda makes me remember those early marriage years as Marty would smilingly and lovingly claim that he married me because I needed guidance. He never came out and said flat out that I was an insipid idealist or gullible, but . . . is it possible that I’m such a late bloomer that I didn’t “grow-up” til age 87?. Can all really be this broken?
