Politics, USA and Independant Love

I don't usually like to talk politics...but I am conducting a poll for myself :) I am an independent and cannot stand the bickering I see on TV all the time. Democrats AND Republicans, where is this peace we all seek????? I feel it is certainly not among us.

"Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me...." Or what?????!!!

Leave a comment and tell me your thoughts on the view of the world at large, the war, things that are going on with policy in our country, foreign trading, etc.

I personally love companies like American Apparel:

I would love to see more commerce here and support of local businesses, than is currently going on. But I will not get on a soapbox...never will this blog be for that. But my parent's have EXTREME views on the state of the nation and I have been with them now for nearly two weeks and so it peaks my interest as to what everyone out there thinks as well. So let me know! Anything you feel you'd like to voice. I am open and love to hear it all.

My father-in-law also has wonderful views and spent 20+ years in the military and has a great view on world politics having been and lived ALL OVER this planet. He is pretty bi-partisan, I'd say and sees everything very clearly. I love hearing his voice and opinions. He suggests the ONLY media we should read or listen to is the writings and reporting in an opinion/partisan-free and ad-free magazine called Foreign Affairs. This is what you can refer to without ANY swaying to the left or right. It simply tells you what is going on in the world, FACTS. This is better than any news station or news paper in his mind and mine :) I do not watch the news or read any paper. I am over the "feeding" we get that really just has the opinions of the higher ups smeared all over reporting these days. See:


So! I welcome and look forward to hearing your thoughts!!!!

Peace,
Becca

To take each moment And live each moment With peace eternally. Let there be peace on earth, And let it begin with me. (child) Let there be peace on earth And let it begin with me.

Let peace begin with me Let this be the moment now. With every step I take Let this be my solemn vow. To take each moment And live each moment In peace eternally. Let there be peace on earth And let it begin with me.

  1. Becca, I could write a book on how I feel about politics, the significants of it and my strong support for the democratic party but I will keep this short. I don't want to offend anyone so I will just focus on what I love about dems and not what I dislike about rebublicans. I think democrats are a community driven, compassionate, and peaceful party. And I think Obama is doing his best to work towards a peaceful world by making amends with foreign countries. He has a big mess to clean up! I'll shut up now! Love, Sarah (self-proclaimed political junkie)
