Left, Right, Middle, where are you and why?
Here goes a philosophical opinion on why we are where we are in this political divide. Please, read this, no matter which side you believe, then comment and tell me where I’m wrong, or right. I am intentionally leaving out the “libertarians” or as in the image, , “constitutionalists” not only do we know who we are, but, still tend to fall into the left, right scenario, but want government to pretty much go away, not a bad idea if you ask me.
I’m going to start with the left side, they are easy to explain because these poor misguided souls were brainwashed in our ultra liberal, totally progressive, Godless, Constitution hating, union controlled public schools, and colleges, they have been taught that they are “entitled”, that someone else, like the government or unions will solve their problems, take care of them, and make life some sort of fantasy utopia, where everybody has just as much as everyone else, they never had a chance!
It is a vicious cycle, go to school, go to college, become a teacher, join the union, pass it on to more kids, on and on it goes. Colleges are really far left, think about it, they are professors! What is a professor but a career student? They learn everything they can about their subject and liberal opinion is part of it, like gun control, no God, “living” Constitution, then, add the Unions, tenure, and boom, you have a liberal factory!
Over educated college kids think they are smarter than everyone else because their teachers, professors, parents and “their” society, told them so, after all if you don’t have a “college” education you must be a dummy, right?
Now, on to the right side, where do they come from? Yes, most go to public schools, then on to college, but, this is where the difference comes in, they see through the liberal progressive brainwashing attempt, probably because they have conservative parents, learn about the Constitution, God and Jesus, maybe guns and hunting, but also because they learn about hard work, they want to earn what they get and keep what they earn, and give to charities they choose and not have it stolen by the government and squandered, they do not feel entitled. Paraphrased, the bible tells you if you don’t work, you don’t eat! 2 Thessalonians 3:10
Yes, conservatives tend to be older, because that brainwashing sometimes takes a while to wear off and education, out of the classroom, called “real life”, teaches us so, maybe even an experience that brought them back to God, but mostly, because they seek the truth, not just something a teacher told them, like evolution.
On to the middle, the place that most Americans claim to be. Those that tell you they are in the middle can usually be put in a middle-left or middle-right group, and these are the voters either side needs to show up Those in the very center, the ones with no opinion of their own at all, they are the followers, maybe to busy to watch the news because of work, maybe they just don’t care, maybe they just don’t know why they should care, either way, if they vote, it will be because someone either left or right of them convinced them to do so.
So, where are you? Are you a leader or a follower? Do you believe in hard work or entitlements? Is God real or a myth? Does the US Constitution protect you from government, or stop government from enslaving you? Are guns good or bad? Think about it, then vote in November!
