I will start out by saying “I get it”. Not everyone in California is spoken for by the vocal majority that is found in Hollywood or the Bay Area. But those who are vocal are in the majority in that state.
California is the one state that has had people brashly come out since November and say they intend to secede from the Union. By hook, or by crook, they will go, because the duly elected President of the United States is not their president.
Stop and think with me for a moment then. Let’s say they have gotten or will get their Calexit. What have they been doing for the past few months?
INTERFERING IN A UNITED STATES ELECTION OF A FEDERAL REPRESENTATIVE!
Yes, I meant to yell.
The most blatant race they stuck their nose in on was the sixth district in Georgia. Millions of dollars poured in from California donors to try and push through a Democrat not because he’s qualified, but because President Trump is currently with the Republican Party.
Who’s complaining about Russia?
We have more proof of this than we do of Russia.
I’m going to get to spend a few days this year at a place I went to every summer for awhile. It’s very possible if I were to make an accurate accounting of time, I would have spent no more than 2 months total in my lifetime. But it holds a dear place in my heart.
Camp Blue Haven has been a gem among the Sangre de Cristo mountains in New Mexico for more than half a century. It is a Christian camp that has hosted thousands over its lifetime. There are experiences I had there that I could have had at any summer camp I went to.
But this one holds some nostalgia for me. I made friends among the staff, counselors, teachers, and campers that I encountered there. To this day, even if I haven’t stayed in contact with some of them, that connection from CBH is enough to strike up a conversation.
There’s also the camp traditions with the songs and the events. They were memorable not because you did them, but because you did them every year.
I’m pretty sure when I stopped going to camp, I told my parents I didn’t want to go any more. As a teenager, that may have been true. But now, I can’t wait to go back.
When was your last “Yellow Highlighter Moment”?
What is it? Well, think about what a highlighter is used for. You use it to draw attention to something. Good, bad, or indifferent, it is meant to catch your eye.
So, when was your last Yellow Highlighter Moment?
“There will never be a viable third-party.”
I don’t know how many times I have heard or read that statement. These days, it often comes from the leadership of, or the straight-ticket voters for, one of the major political parties.
I will tell you right now that Democrats and Republicans have long since ceased being about different ideologies. It is now “he who has the most money wins”.
Obama had the most money. He just got it in different ways than before.
Trump had the most money, even without the party.
Bernie may have had more money than Hillary, but he threatened how the Democrats got their money.
The Democratic “ideals” threaten the money of business owners.
The Republican “ideals” threaten the social welfare money.
The United States is too obsessed with money.
If we take money out of the equation, our street signs would look more like this one. Some people may say that this is a pathway to chaos. Others say it is a pathway to the true American ideology.
We could have an election in September with everyone. We could then have a run-off in November. We spend less money on elections. We get a more concise result. We might also see less political dynasty.
