Happy New Year! 2018 was quite the rollercoaster for me, with many ups and downs. I’m not sure what I’d consider it, but it has made me excited for a fresh start. One reason I’m looking forward to this year, is that it isn’t an election year. Many political commentators probably find that boring, but this is great for me. First of all I’m not insane and therefore don’t find it fun to watching the country at war with itself ever general election. Secondly, I don’t write to take advantage of current news, and often it is distracting from my main goal. During major political motions I find myself having to pick sides and write quickly, directing my messaged to a specific group of people. That makes some of my writings more uncomfortable for people who disagree with me to read. The entire purpose of this blog was to make people think, not just to reassure those who already agree with me and alienate those who disagree with me.
Over the past 6 months I’ve been editing many blog posts on more philosophical subjects. Discussions I think Americans should be more involved in. This is where I’ve always felt unique amongst other commentators. When I do slip out a blog post focused on social issues I feel much more accomplished- because in the long run I find it more important. My drive to do good comes from God, not the power and wealth of politics. If I can inspire something good in politics that’s great, but this country need much more than a good government. The way we think today is tearing us apart physically, mentally and spiritually. We’ve all been blessed with a mind, and I intend to use mine outside the limitations of politics.
These new blog posts are something I’ve put off for sometime, simply because I want to be confident in what I’m putting out there. There’s less gray to worry about when writing about history and law. Much of my way of thinking is controversial amongst conservative and liberal thinkers. I might arrive at some of the same conclusion as the modern right-wing, only with more of the personal, emotional and spiritual thinking typically associated with the modern left-wing. So it’s going to be interesting.
I’m genuinely excited to see where this year is headed. Of course I’ll be posting about politics within our government as usual, but I feel like I’ll be providing much more than the typical arguments made by other political commentators. Thank you all for being patient with my slow upload schedule in 2018. Hopefully this year I post a lot more thought provoking material.
