The State of the Union speech marks the end of the first year in office for the president…. I am a little embarrased to admit this has been the first time I’ve watched the event. Why I haven’t? I don’t have a good answer there.
In part, was my growing mistrust for big government. Watching as year after year the politicians spoke one thing and did another. Sensing that the common man was not being heard. Therefore not being represented. Leaving the helpless feeling that my one vote , my one voice could do nothing. I find it hard pressed to believe I’m the only one feeling this way.
Why now, the change of heart? It is a change. Not so, the heart,I still sport a strong mistrust, but more of a change in attitude. I can no longer ignore it . That doesn’t make it go away Neither does denial. Ignorance is not bliss. No, ignorance is dangerous. We would all do good to become informed. Importantly, not from just one information source. Investigate the whole gamut of information.
