Here’s something to think about:
The way we perceive things impacts everything! When our perception is right we see things as they truly are. When our perception is wrong we are just stumbling in the dark. And if we perceive our stumbling in the dark as walking in the light, then how bad is that!
Many Americans, of every political persuasion, have become so shortsighted that they are unwilling to see beyond their favorite presidential candidate in an election cycle. We have come to the point where many are so desperate for a person who will fix everything (or what they perceive needs to be fixed) that they are willing to abandon all principled and critical thinking.
Historically speaking this is always how things get worse, not better.
