The Power of “NO”
The heights of the mountains is a measure of the depths of the valleys. We couldn’t have one without the other. Or, as Kahlil Gibran says:
The selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears.
If life is nothing but pain or nothing but bliss, then it’s nothing at all since we have nothing to compare it with. A sick and deluded parent that can never accept or appreciate the joy provided by a child or spouse can never make a good person. In fact, it’s is a downright sick and scary person who is always the person incapable of accepting anything or seeing the good in anything.
You’ve probably already guessed, but, yes, I’m referring to the Republican Party. No matter what the majority of Americans do or what Obama proposes, it’s never acceptable, in fact, it’s downright evil according to the Republican Party.
A sick and deluded party that is incapable or refuses to see the good offered by others is a sick party indeed.
If the Republican Party wanted to admit, once in a while, that they were wrong or stupid or criminal and that maybe occasionally the Democrats were right or good or beneficial for America, just once in a while, then we would all find some value in their positions. But, when it is just “no, no, and more no” then it’s nothing. There’s nothing to compare it to and there’s no value in the misinterpretations.
Remember after 9/11, all of America came together and supported Bush. Would the Republicans ever find a reason to back a Democrat? If they can’t support America, then what are they? Do they really belong in American politics?
The last time the Republican Party was this destructive, it was named the Whigs and it went away.
Republicans, I beg you, please take back your party! Kick out the monsters and kick out the extremists and the terrorists and prosecute your criminals. Turn off Fox and your Hate Radio and bring a viable party back to the negotiating tables and to America’s politics. We need two parties at the very least. We need you! Take your party back!
