I'll share a secret with you, I hate politics. People assume that because I blog about it, I love it, it must be a passion. Nope, hate it. Politics are slimy, disenfranchising, corrupt, smelly, noxious, and often evil. I only blog about it because I feel like I need to say something to provide a little stability to the whirlwind. I don't want conservatism to die in the toxic world of politics. And perhaps most importantly, I want to be able to hold my head up high and say that I stood up and fought for truth and right.
Given the nature of politics, it's important not to dwell on it, or it will bring you down. If you find yourself getting frustrated, angry, sad, etc., then turn off the TV, shut down your computer, put down the newspaper and take a break. Breathe.
Without a clear head and a positive spirit, we conservatives can't effectively affect change. Don't get bogged down in the muck, stay above it and lead by example.
We are in the right, there is no question about that. Rather than trying to prove the rightness of it by beating our heads against a wall (aka arguing with liberals), let's show the rightness of it, by electing conservative leaders that will enact conservative changes. Let's educate our youth with conservative principles. Let's stop being the silent majority and start being the shining beacon to the wayward.
Keep up the good fight.
