I learned a long time ago that my opinions don’t matter, and that’s not what this blog is about anyway. This is a creative writing blog, and I focus now on poetry. However, since our country is in such a political mess, I feel a responsibility to share a little on where I am politically.
I am no longer a member of the Republican Party. Believe it or not though, it has nothing to do with Donald Trump. It started when President Obama first started running for office. I didn’t like what I saw coming from the right. I didn’t like what their views were, and I never liked the way they attacked President Obama.
I liked President Obama then, and even more so now. I like what he says, and the way he says it. He carries a certain professionalism, and statesmanship that I think is unique.
But I digress, my views changed over time from being really, super conservative, to what I would call progressive. Do I like everything the Democrats say? No, of course not.
And what about now? I’m glad that some Republicans are now standing up to the President. I don’t trust him, and never have. I could rant and rave about the many things he has done and said, but I won’t. He is wrong though, on many different levels.
Those are my opinions, and like I said, I am a Progressive now.
Please be kind with your comments. And now back to poetry.
