I found it thoroughly amusing when I watched Candy Crowley interview Rand Paul (who I love) and ask him if he’d ever consider being a Democrat.
Why would this amuse me? Well because it’s a stupid question.
There’s no such thing as a stupid question…I beg to differ…there are some questions that are straight up stupid and this is one of them.
There are some that “like” qualities in both parties and some that absolutely detest both.
I get it, the whole political scene is quite disgusting, I won’t argue that. Both parties trying to get there way-grown adults throwing tantrums and refusing to compromise. Neither party really wanting the other to succeed and forget about what’s best for the country!
Republicans are viewed as stingy conservatives who refuse to help those in need and Democrats are seen as progressive socialists forming a one world government.
(perhaps there is some truth in both)
But you first have to know yourself before choosing or not choosing a party.
I think when you truly know what you stand for and what you are about, converting to something else just isn’t a possibility. So when Ms. Crowley asked Senator Paul that question, it implied Senator Paul not knowing who he was, or what he stood for.
At the core of each political party there are key fundamentals that each party openly embraces…your job is to KNOW what these are….and do they agree with who you are and what you stand for.
I believe we are approaching a day in age where you must know where you stand on issues. There are some things where there is no “grey” zone. There are some areas where there is no compromise…there are some areas where the answer is clear but not easy.
Like Shakespeare wrote: “to thine own self be true.”
