Politics Have Become Toxic

Some People Have Gotten Me Started
I have been working on my first blog of the year. I find it hard to talk about politics these days among friends and family members, so I am doing my research and giving my opinions a try. Politics is hard to talk about these days because of what it involves. We are either one of those parties or on the same side. It does not matter because one party or the other is going to fight to belong. I feel, as a woman who does care what happens, that my opinions do not matter because I am a Republican. So what if I am. I did not go and say that President Obama was not my President because he is a Democrat, because I am a Republican like many Democrats have said on Facebook and Twitter to this very day. I have seen many posts and comments on Facebook and Twitter the past four years, declaring and writing that President Trump is not my President from many Democrats. Oh my goodness gracious, I have to tell you the truth here. President Trump knows he is a hated man and has known for many years. So please do not ask me if I like him or not. He is human, just like the rest of the population of humans. He is a businessman, politician, and human. He tells it like it is even when his mouth offends women on top of it. I have heard it while he has been in office. It is Donald Trump, ladies, and gentlemen. He’s not going to change for anyone but himself. So do not get me started on politics, please. Oops, some people have gotten me started.

He Is Human Like the Rest of Us
President Trump is human like the rest of us, ladies and gentlemen. He makes mistakes as everyone else does. If God wanted President Trump to be anything but human, he would have done so. President Trump was a businessman from the start like other members of his family before he was President of the United States. Yes, many presidents before him have been in politics as governors like Bill Clinton in Arkansas. Maybe President Trump may not have been in politics before he became President of the United States. Still, as a businessman, he might have some political background and, again, maybe not. I cannot speak for him. Yes, he has a mouth that can be offensive to women. I have heard it and seen it on news clips.

Political Rivalry
The political rivalry has been going on since George Washington has been our first President of the United States.
My opinion is this. There is a lot of political competition going on right now, and it is ridiculous. The Democrats do not like the Republicans, and the Republicans do not like the Democrats. I am a Republican, and yet I am civil and kind to others who are Democrats. I will not get into a political argument with other people because I respect their reasons. I let people vote the way they want. I vote/propose the way I feel is necessary myself.

There are even some politicians who are very rough and harsh to the point I believe their hearts are not in the right place, but that is my opinion. I also think that some people need to step down from office because of age, hatred toward particular groups of people, and that power has gone to their heads.
I may not understand politics, and I am not the only one.

I May Not Understand Politics
I am not politically inclined like other people who are. I may not understand politics, and I am not the only one. When I do not know what is going on, I talk to the right people who can answer my questions and concerns. I also get going on through conversations, and that does include what I hear around me with groups of people that does not necessarily mean I am, I am an observer. I see what I see for a reason. Understanding politics is one area I am growing in.


What I Do Understand
Please be well aware that I am a Christian woman who is growing spiritually in her beliefs and understanding being one of God’s children. What I am about to share with you in this section is something I do understand. In the past few years, I have learned where I stand, what I need to do as a human being, and why I am here. Life as a Christian, I have made mistakes, learned from the mistakes I have made, and live my life the best I can. I know and understand that politics, religion, and sex/sex orientation are three subjects and topics that are the toughest to talk about. I find it easy to talk about God and what he has done for me throughout the years with others who find it easy to discuss their spiritual growth as well.


What’s happening today in the world is expected, as the Bible portrays in the pages we turn to read. The Bible tells us what happened before Jesus came, while he was here, and after. Yes, the Bible tells stories, and those stories were written by God’s chosen prophets, followers, and Jesus. Am I afraid of what is happening today? Yes, I am, but my hope and understanding is that everything is in God’s hands, and he knows what he is doing. With what health I have right now, my chances of getting an infection is possible. I have been leaving everything in God’s hands at this time after 31 years since my first kidney transplant. I am here because he wants me to be here.

As far as politics is concerned, I find that we are always going to be a divided country now. Am I sad about it? No, not sorry that I want to cry. I do have feelings about what is going on right now as there are people out there who want Trump as President. I get it. What I think, as far as how bad one group of people wish to have Trump out of office, is childish.

  1. Well said. I think it is very sad that we seem to be having such a hard time these days having a civil discussion. This is a terrible situation because when you respect and listen to a differing opinion, if you are open, you might actually learn something you didn’t know. AND when we have those discussions, we learn to moderate our views and realize that there is a bigger picture. I’m not talking about making everything gray. I’m talking about learning how to accept nuances. Let’s face it. The world is FULL of contradictions, exceptions, qualifiers, and dichotomies. Right now it’s hard to find a place where those things are being explored. But not impossible. Try watching The Ruben Report on You Tube. It will encourage you that there ARE still thinking people on this planet who aren’t screaming at the top of their lungs and calling people names. 🙂
