I have been very, very distressed about the state of politics lately. Feeling that it was fueled by a lot more than issues, conservatism, and liberalism, I began to feel jaded and cynical. I still do. In short, I'm disgusted.
I had lunch with a good friend Saturday, and we went there. We discussed politics. He said something that helped me compartmentalize what I was feeling about the state of our nation and it's rulers.
"Politics is like sports", he said. "Everyone has a favorite team", he said. "They don't care who's right or wrong, as long as their favorite team wins".
Yes. I think that is the crux of the problem. There are also underlying issues that dictate which team people join, but I really think he hit the nail on the head.
Do you see some truth in this?
Do you think I'm full of crud?
