Love Can’t Produce Hate

 

Reading posts, I’m saddened. Uplifted that so many have an opinion about the events of the day. Inspired to read so many insights. But saddened by the affliction on people’s hearts. People calling each other racists and xenophobic.  Even if they are, we see it and know it.

Where is the love? Many claim to be religious yet, I see so much hate. Some of it is the hate that hate produced. Can love drive it out?

I haven’t lost my mind, I’m asking a question. If the Trump and Cruz supporters are so bad, what do you think they think of the the Bernie and Hillary supporters? On the surface, people are voting for personalities and not getting to the core issues.

Obama isn’t the problem. Never was. We are! Whether you’re Black or White, Hispanic or Asian or African, Australian or European we all play a role in the dysfunction in our world.

The common issue at hand is economics. Want to erase crime and stop terrorism? Want your child to get a quality education, or stop world hunger? Want your business to succeed? Want to stop working three or four jobs? Want to narrow racial and religious divides? Then vote for someone who will address the economy.

Focus on the candidates that will improve the economy. Not the ones that will just address the disparity in wealth.

You can’t take what the wealthy have already acquired. That’s wrong.

Wrong policies got us here. It doesn’t mean raise taxes. They’re high enough. And it’s not about ending entitlements right away. Because entitlements aren’t just for the poor, they help everyone. They’re in farming and oil and much more, if we look at the annual budget.

It means thinking outside the box and finding ways that collectively we work together. And really get to the crux of the matter.

But to get there we have to change what’s in our heart. No matter what side we sit on.

It can’t be you did this to me anymore!

The truth is, we can go farther, if we look at each other and can say, look what you did for me!
