Editorial #66 It is always something.
There always seems to be something to worry about or with which to be concerned. No matter how good things are, there is always an issue that keeps things from being perfect. We all know this, but as responsible adults we all have a list of things we would like to fix in an effort to minimize future problems and make things better. A stitch in time saves nine!
This is life and, theoretically, we should be able to let it go, move on, and enjoy the present moment with our loved ones doing that makes us happiest. It may be a personality trait or a value system but the contrast between liberals and conservatives is: liberals always seem to be concerned with the past or the future while conservatives are more content with the present and more optimistic. We can do this by living in the present. It is actually all we really have as we can’t change the past or live in the future yet.
We live in the greatest country in the world and practically everyone outside the United States would love to be an American citizen. But the constant negative attitude about how unfair this country is or how badly certain groups were treated with the gloom and doom of climate change, which we known as weather, is not constructive. We can’t change the past or the weather. Life is hard and it is never what happens to us that matters, but how we deal with what happens to us. This is what freedom is. The most optimistic statement I have ever heard is: “The situation may be impossible but not serious.”
Diversity is not an advantage. It is simply a fact. Everyone is different and celebrating differences can be romantic and wonderful but we, as a nation, must all live and learn to accept the same rules of law that are applied equally. It is not sustainable to have artificial regulations attempting to level the playing field. It is simply not fair to exploit diversity in that way. This is the liberal mindset used to find more victims and harvest their votes. They exacerbate unhappiness by constantly talking about it, because if everyone were content there is little desire for change.
Liberals realize they can’t make everyone happy. This explains the rise of socialism where they actually want everyone to be equally miserable as their solution. This also explains the high level of alcoholism and drug abuse in socialistic countries because people feel helpless to do anything about it. The real evil is the exploitation of these conditions to gain and expand their political power. They want society to be completely dependent on the government for their existence. This is why they want to take away our guns.
We can live in the freest country in the world but if we depend on the government for our existence we are simply slaves to that government. We are a constitution republic with freedoms, if we can keep it. We must stand up, defend and teach these freedoms by not letting political correctness be used to discriminate and intimidate us into being a slave in the greatest nation on earth.
This is Keith Kube wishing you the best in making the world a better place.
