The ebb and flow of politics and the ever changing social and political atmosphere of not only America but the entire world.
If you live by whomever the president is, perhaps you will also die by whomever the president is.
If you cannot maintain your own independence on a personal level, if your cannot maintain independence within your own home, perhaps you do not deserve independence.
Say whatever you want, create your own justifications as to why the president is the king of the world and the emperor of your very soul.
In the end, you are either independent or you are not independent. When your livelihood is completely dependent on who sits in the Oval Office, perhaps you should reassess.
You choose what and whom you will devote your energy to.
If you continually allow outside forces to dictate your path, you will never be truly free.
