Jim Jakosh:

Not only do I agree with everything you said, but … I’ll go a step further.

APOLOGIES, in advance.

They’re all robbing us, Folks. I think the worst thing any of us can DO is to be a partisan.

I’m a registered NON-PARTISAN. Have been since I first registered.

I get my info the way I get my nutrition—from a wide variety of sources, and with as LITTLE processing as possible.

Most people listen to what they already agree with. What good is that ?

Most of what I hear on any forum that allows politics is blindly “party over principle.” In other words, pretty much hypocritical BS. It was okay when MY guy did it, but now that YOUR guy is in office, ohhhhhhhh, no. It’s NOT okay.

Which is like 4th graders’ logic.

While they keep us all blindly conservative or blindly liberal … they loot the store.
While they dig up the most DIVISIVE issues they possibly can, to enrage “us” against “them,” they do it SO THAT the angry ones will donate generously to their campaigns.

It’s a very sick system. If you’re blindly partisan, you’re a symptom of that sickness.

Stop going to your favorite news sources. They only tell you what you already believe. Mix it up a little. Mix it up a lot. Turn off your radio, too, while you’re at it.

I have NO interest in being told what to think. I can think pretty well. I want facts. Most of the “news sources” that most people turn to … tell them what to think.

I’d rather have an UN-informed electorate than a MIS-informed electorate, and—watching most peoples’ takes on political stuff—we have a MIS-informed electorate.

We’re all entitled to our own opinions, but NOT our own facts. Get facts. Best you can.

Coffee time :-)
