The Nasty World of Politics
I think the title says it all, Politics is a nasty, dirty, blood-sport. And, if you wanna play with the big dogs of politics you better be prepared to expect all that comes with it. Now, I'm not talking about stupid little blogs that surface that are run by anonymous "keyboard tough guys". Those people have no credibility and are written off as nuts. I'm talking about being involved in politics where people you work with and learn to trust and even develop a friendship with are nothing more then backstabber's, that will sell you down the river to advance their own political agenda or the agenda of their "chosen" candidate. It's hard to do this, to come to a realization that you have been ignoring, but known for quite some time, they're not your friends...they're using you and will spit you out as soon as they figure out that your ideas may differ from what their ideas are. Even if what you think is what the majority of people have decided.
Well, what I described is not something I want to be part of any longer. In order to get away from the dirty world of politics you have two choices. 1.) Cut all ties or 2.) Work with someone who you know is genuine and will do what is in the best interest of the people... as much as this sounds crazy there are a few of those people left. I have chosen option 1, and, 2, I'm cutting all my ties with the people I described in paragraph one, and working on a commitment on the person that has the people's interests at heart.
In order to do this, I'm shutting this blog down. This is officially the last post and will go offline on Sunday. I would turn it off now, but I feel that I deserve the people that come on here an explaination. Thank you to all that come here and support me... I appriciate it.
