I didn’t tune into the “State of the Union” address last night and I am steering clear of any commentary today. You either loved it or you hated it, I do not believe many find the middle or the common ground.
Today, like every other day, people will be cheering it, while other people will be jeering it. It will be referred to as unifying, racist, amazing, sexist, promising, xenophobic, uplifting and lying. You see, I see no point in “playing along” with “politics as normal”.
If you’re willing to get into a fight, whether physical or verbal, if you’re willing to lose friends and family over politics. Then you are doing exactly what “they” want you to do.
Are you their puppet? Their pet, that they commend and condemn in one breath?
The more you follow them, the less they will follow you. You are either at the helm, or you are a hapless passenger, strapped in and you have no say in where we end up.
