Opinion overload

Politics has been and always will remain a HOT topic. Political conversations can fuel passionate discussions that can lead to vehemently fierce arguments. Disagreements involving politics have destroyed and dismantled relationships of all types. I do understand that everyone has an opinion, which is their right, but I do not think it should create as much hostility and friction as it does. Unfortunately, the truth is none of us have any control over what happens in the political world. I may not be correct, but I do believe the only consistency with most politicians is they all have a difficult time understanding what the truth means.

Many people have their views and thoughts on certain topics engrained in them. I do not mean these thoughts were built into them from birth because as we grow, we determine our world views. My personal views on many of the HOT topics, we have all been told not to discuss with family and friends are very different from my mother who raised me. Honestly, the reason for my political views is that I am a true believer in equality, and I do not judge people based on anything besides their treatment of others.

November is the mid-term election, so there is a lot of talk going on regarding this now. The one that is standing out in my mind currently is the candidates in Georgia. The person that is running for the US Senator on the Republican side, Herschel Walker, makes my blood boil. The things that have come out of his mouth have been clean and bald-faced lies and he is against everything that I believe in. I do not understand how a so-called “man” that has paid for a woman to have an abortion can now be against it, even in cases of rape and incest. The man is a hypocrite and a disgrace to humanity.

Most of the politicians in the United States after from a much older generation and are stuck in the past. They have not evolved to the level the country requires. Once these politicians get to a certain again, they should be forced to retire and allow the younger generation an opportunity. Of course, certain people are still in office as senators or governors that I strongly dislike because their views are still from another time, and I think they are not only disrespectful but extremely offensive. The United States is “supposed” to be a free and welcoming place, but in my opinion, is anything but what it “claims” to stand for.

It breaks my heart to see on the news the constant and unnecessary violence. There is NO logical or rational reason for people to fear going to public places because of random shootings. I was ignorant of the level of hatred in the country I live in for most of my life, but now I see that it has always been an issue. It seems like the problems we are suffering from have a band-aid put on them, but they are just a temporary fix and NOT an actual solution.

Situations regarding abortion and gay marriage are topics that enrage me. The abortion law was put into place 50 years ago and it made sense. This gave a woman the right to her body without a government dictating what was allowed. Of course, this law was overturned this year and was the WRONG decision. I strongly believe that it is a woman’s body, and no one has a right to decide what happens in her body. Even though people allow their religious views to influence how they feel about abortion, that should not force a victim of rape to have to carry a reminder of the worst day of their life for nine months.

Gay marriage became legal in 2015. This is not causing anyone any harm and is simply about love between two people. Just because we do not understand, or something makes someone uncomfortable does not mean it should not be allowed. Love is love and not something criminal. I do believe people are either born gay or not and it is not something they wake up one morning and decide to be.

It seems that the world is on opinion overload, and many do not try to understand the way others think. We do not have to agree with others on everything, but we do need to be respectful of their thoughts. If you know you disagree with another person on something, it is best to evade that topic and avoid unnecessary arguments. We already know that people have strong opinions on topics such as politics, religion, abortion, and sexual preferences, so these should be avoided at all costs.

Thank goodness it is Saturday, and we can rest or do whatever else we choose. How was your week? For some reason, last week felt insanely long and I was exhausted by the end of the day yesterday. Do you have anything special planned for the weekend or will you just do your best to recover from the week? My plans are the latter and recuperate from the week.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared, and I do apologize if anything I mentioned was offensive because that was never my intention. I would love to read your thoughts and I will respond to your comments as quickly as possible. I hope you enjoy your weekend and stay as safe as possible. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa
