Watching the GOPers is painful personally as the resonance of the wronged echoes within me. How many times I have felt grieved, and at a loss, and really frustratingly, tearfully outraged at the goings on. These times have been during my divorces, of which there have been a few, enough to illuminate a pattern of behavior - a social paradigm - that appears to have emerged in the far right, in the period since the last election.
(This was such an historic event, we moved up the evolutionary ladder so high, that a dip in the national psyche had to happen, and so we have the present behavior.) I did lots of complaining and whining, especially about money, and had no real plan for creating a better situation, and thought about myself, and no others, all the time. I was mad at everyone and accepted no responsibility for my situation or for my anger.
I just did not have an ethical imperitive in me to create cooperative good. I wanted to point and vilify every attempt at a forward move on the part of my former partner/adversary. And Republicans and AM talk shows are doing just that very thing. Just another bitter ex, talking about what an a------- their unchosen one is.
I promise there will be closure, an end to bitterness, a definite melting of the hardened mind. As soon as our President is re-elected, the elephant will forget grievances and settle into the cooperative spirit that our very Blessed Democracy deserves. If I can do it, so can they.
