going pro


I have some friends that will vote for Hillary that really do care for the poor. I have some friends that will vote for Barrack that are concerned about people that are different than them. I have some friends that will vote for McCain that care about the elderly.

I know some jerks that will always vote for the democrat.
I know some idiots that will always vote for the republican.
I know some crazy kids that love voting for whoever isn't really running for a real office (Ralph Nadar anyone?)

Dumb people vote on both sides of the aisle.
People who care about others and demonstrate that care with weekly and even daily action will vote for both candidates.

We all disagree on a few issues - and that's ok.

There's a guy that I've followed a bit through his books who is fond of saying, "I'm not against anything, I'm just for Jesus"

I kind of think that's a decent way of looking at things.

If Jesus isn't your thing, maybe you could translate that to, "I'm not against _________ I'm just for ________"

As a follower of Jesus, I'm told that "whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."

That might be a better way to go. I'm sick of getting caught up in the anti everything. It's too easy to get mad. It releases some adrenaline and feels good at first...and then it just eats at me.

Being anti everything is easy. It's easy to sit back and take pot shots. It's like going for the obvious joke that everybody is thinking of, but not saying...because it's too obvious.

I'd rather spend my future focus on the things that are lovely.
