If you’re like most people, I am sure, you’ve discovered, each election cycle, candidates try to over – simplify issues, seemingly looking for a black – and – white option, when, often, some level of gray, may be the most viable, powerful choice! Too often, politicians, either, under – quote, or think, the intellect of the components, is somewhat suspicious! When, we’re granted, an all – or – none, choice/ alternative, politically, it would be smart to beware! With that in mind, this guide will try to, temporarily, consider, review, analyze, and discuss, 5 illustrations, when this doesn’t make a difference, for the better, in our American experience.
1. Israel/ Judaism/ anti – Semitism: The Jewish faith, and the experience, of we, Jews, is frequently, a complicated one! There’s no, one – size – fits – all, heritage, andthere are four significant components, for celebrating, such as Orthodox, Conservative, Reformed/ Liberal, and Reconstructionist. Therefore, if any public official, says, every Jew should vote and act, in any particular way, is below – contempt! An individual may have a strong individuality, nevertheless, support Israel, in various ways! Like many other issues, one’s faith, does not imply, blindly supporting any political solution, activity, or politician, if in this state, Israel or anywhere else! Proclaiming, he’s a winner, to the Jewish people, doesn’t make, President Trump, really so, or deserving of universal support, no matter any other issues, and his rhetoric, vitriol, and activities! Islam/ Muslims: Most politicians have attempted to mobilize political support, by scape – goating specific ethnic groups, and attractive to the hatred, fears, and biases/ prejudices, of any so – called, political foundation! Islam is the greatest religion on earth, however, the actions of a tiny minority, has allowed, despicable politicians, to move, with this negative charm, and head – set! Southern Border/ Border Security: Though, nearly nobody, opposes quality, necessary, border security, this President, has, used the image, and symbol, of a Southern Wall, his personal, political weapon, to draw his core fans. While, most security specialists, have proclaimed, this obstacle, is an ineffective, expensive, unworkable, unrealistic strategy, Trump has lasted equating support for the wall, with border security. He ties this message, into his apparent, anti – immigration message, frequently, appearing to make up facts, to try to pronounce his case! Support President, versus Patriotism: Patriotism has nothing to do, together with supporting any specific public official, coverage, and/ or, actions, yet, President Trump, has regularly attempted, to discriminate supporting his, to being patriotic! In reality, historically, true patriots have, frequently, compared certain political leaders, and/ or, public policies. Supporting a formal, and love for country, are far different entities! Socialist, versus capitalist: Are not you tired of, the politics of, whining and whining, distorting, and lying? It is wrong, when so – called, conservatives refer to some government program, they oppose, as socialist, and, also when progressives, utilize capitalism, as a symbol, of all, that is wrong! We’ve seen hypocrisy, and empty rhetoric, even as it comes to these matters, when a so – known, conservative, supports intense deficit spending!
The best approach, and conclusions, are often, not, black – and – white! We want public leaders, who, move, towards a meeting – of – the – heads, for the common good, using innovative Squirrel Poop!
