Gridlock, Polarization And Shown Indifference

Gridlock.
Polarization and shown indifference.
Each has a similar effect.
Each prevents progress.
Each suppresses without exception,
Those who believe their best interests are kept...
By anyone elected to represent them.
This process used to be called 'oppression'.
But for whatever the purpose and reason,
To have a political correctness accepted...
Gridlock, polarization and shown indifference,
Has become more tolerated by those constituents...
Teased 'indefinitely' and kept in divisions,
With belief their 'entitlements' include...
A debating of their lives and the quality,
Will someday be enhanced...
When gridlock, polarization and shown indifference ends.
And a resuscitation to that which had been valued returns.

Aloha Lawrence... Another great read this night... I am first inclined to veer into the Jeffersonian realm of thought... i.e. The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants... or perhaps, A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks. However, the clarity of your message cum thought leads me onward from a base personal to perhaps a more present day minded quip... The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government... or: A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned... The question is then... How can we take the gp and si out of the equation? ... There have been few changes in the human condition, positive or otherwise that have not developed from relatively rapid, chaotic, destructive actions... What will it take Lawrence, for resuscitation of any one universally positive element of reason and honest leadership to arise in the human conscience? Thank you my brother bard for causing these questions to reawaken in the forefront of my thoughts... All of the best from this life, to you, and all of your relations... Michaelw1two
