Doesn’t matter if your Liberal, Conservative, Democratic or Republican . . . We have a problem

When a friend’s daughter Rachel was twelve, she started learning the roots of words.  While doing her homework she came upon the term “politics.”  At the time she had no idea what the definition of the word was, so she started attacking the term by looking at the prefix and suffix.

Inquisitively, Rachel thought to herself aloud and said: “poli, poli, poli . . . that means many”, and then preceded by saying: “Tics, tics, tics”.  Suddenly Rachel’s eyes lit up and responded: “Tics, blood sucking creatures”.  Rachel put the two words together and said “Politics equals many blood sucking creatures”.

Anyone watching the news these days has most likely is aware that we have huge problem on our hands, when it comes to politics.   The world has become extremely politically divided.  Unfortunately, for what ever reasons there are, the vast majority of citizens of the planet earth are starting to see politics in extremely black and white terms, with very few shades grey.  This very type of polarized thinking and the political squabbling that goes along with this type of restricted communication, is enabling various factions of Islamic terrorist groups to gain power; and take part in their murderous savagery globally.

Years ago while  I attending college, I learned about the importance of any totalitarian regime to divide a group of people in any way possible in hopes of conquering a society. If these types of totalitarian regimes could create dissidence between the various factions amongst a group of people, it would be much easier for their brainwashed, cultic followers to take over the government in which they preyed upon.  The goal would be to be able to control every aspect of the life of the people within the specific area or country.  We all must realize by now, this is the very goal of groups like Hamas, Hezbollah, ISIS, along with any other Islamic terrorist group out there.  Their hopes and desires is to not only control the countries they are currently engaging in war, yet also to cause havoc in the United States, along with every  other country worldwide.

The divide between those who consider themselves as being liberal or conservative thinkers, is exactly what the terrorist groups want.  Their propaganda is encouraging the growth of the extreme oppositions.  The hope that is being propagated by various factions,  is to create some sort of implosion between various cultures in hopes of destroying western civilization as we know it.  Putting individuals into various categories is dangerous, yet it is exactly what the sociopaths who are attempting to terrorize us is hoping we will all start to do.

If you stop and think about it, these Islamic, extremist groups would have no problem murdering just as many conservative thinkers as they would those who are more liberal.  They are mimicking Adolf Hitler and his nazi regime.  Hitler didn’t care which movement of Judaism someone came from, he saw all Jews as the same and believed we should all be exterminated.

I personally believe it’s important for everyone to stop putting our friends, family and those we meet on social media groups into a category.  By categorizing each other we stop thinking for ourselves, give away your own personal power –– let alone stopping to utilize your own ability to critically think things out for yourself.

It really doesn’t matter who voted Barack Obama into office, along with a slew of other politicians.  The vast majority of Americans voted these folks into office.  Let go of the blame game, it’s time for us to all join forces and work together as a team to take back America, and to make the world a safer place to live.

I also want to add, that I don’t see President Obama as being liberal.  He’s nothing more then a con artist. He tricked the American people into believing he cared about women’s rights, human rights,  and all the other issues he told us he believed in.

I’ve been on social media sites and have seen first hand how viciously attacked people are who voice their beliefs and or views –– and if they differ then others.  There is no problem with discussing important issues publicly, yet we all have to be very careful with our words.  If we don’t, then we sound  just like the type of people we despise.  It’s ok to agree to disagree, yet to start calling others names, attacking their intelligence, or make fun of their personhood –– then that falls into the category of cyberbullying and is a criminal offense.

When we categorize a group of people and state facts such as saying  “ALL” Muslims, Jews, Christians, Liberals, Conservatives are like this.  We are no longer listening to what the other has to say.  We are creating polar differences which can almost never be bridged.  It is vitally important to remember that we can always “agree to disagree”, and just end the conversations.  If you can feel your pulse beating fast, or your blood starting to boil, much better to take a step back, breath and think about the words you are about to choose.

We ALL must take the high road when putting stuff out there. We can be saying the same things, yet we must do it with dignity.  Remember “The Whole World Is Watching”,  including those who wish to murder everyone living within western civilization who are not under their control.

Change starts with each and every one of us.  Can you imagine what the world would be like if we would stop stereotyping each others?  Stop putting your friends, family and everyone you meet into boxes.  It’s the only way we can stop the insanity and start working together as a team.
