This is my seventh blog since the first of the year, but the first I have published. Why? Well, for one thing, all the others sound like I’m whining. Which I am. So, what’s the problem?
Well! The race for president of the United States has already begun. The candidates for one party have sunk so low that it’s disgusting. Yes, I’m whining. How can anyone be proud of such behavior? And it’s getting worse. If one of them is elected, how can we as Americans be proud of our president? What crazy thing will he do? How much trouble will he make for our country?
I would like to write something profound, something that would turn around all those who are in favor of such candidates, make them see the ridiculousness and even the danger of it. But nothing profound comes to mind.
Am I still whining? Probably. Actually I’m heartsick. I can’t see the future as anything but glum if any of these extreme candidates should become president. Yes, there are some moderates running, but they are not as charismatic with the crowds. And the candidates react to those crowds, speaking and acting even more wildly.
So I’m also disgusted with many of my fellow Americans.
Whine, whine. Nothing profound here.
