Looks can be deceiving
I’m debuting a new category here. I hear people talking about stupid shit like “gay marriage” will be the downfall of society… or that porn will be the downfall of society… or that lack of religion in people’s lives will be the downfall of society. Whatever. I think those people are full of shit. I’m here to tell you what *I* think are some of the reasons for the downfall of society…
Today, I want to talk about appearances. People are so wrapped up in how they think something should look that they disregard things that don’t match that preconceived notion. Example: American flag pins. Why must everyone running for any office wear one? It used to be that you didn’t have to. But now, there’s this perception that you’re not a patriot if you don’t wear one. Why? Why can’t we choose a candidate on, say, his voting record? Or job performance? Those would definitely be much better barometers for choosing a candidate. ANYBODY can put on a flag pin and claim to be a patriot. Give me someone who’s a proven leader and who shows me they care about making this country a better place instead of just getting themselves (and their friends) rich.
