I am sad

I am feeling old these days. I am remembering earlier days when politics weren’t so all-or-nothing – days not so long ago when the country was truly better off because we had people in congress who would disagree, look for common ground, figure out when and how to compromise, and get things done. No one won all the time, things seldom went through looking like either side wanted them to, and often the better part of each side’s ideas came together and became what made it through. Things weren’t perfect, but things did get done. And I look at things today, and how some people won’t even afford the President of the United States any respect at all, and it makes me sad. Love him or hate him, that is your choice. But he deserves respect if for no other reason that he was elected to the highest position of our government. Yes, I am sad.
