“For” Trumps “Against” Every Time

To be “for” something acknowledges its existence.

To be “against” something does the same thing; it acknowledges — and therefore adds momentum to — the very thing that one is fighting against, adding to the energy that thing already carries, adding strength to its momentum, and making it more difficult to disembody.

The Dems had two strong candidates (as well as a couple who were less strong) that actually stood “for” something. Corporate Democratic Establishment’s fear of The New forced these candidates slowly but surely out of the running., leaving us with a candidate, a man who stands for… hmmmm… the same ole, same ole. He is the epitome of a mid-point. I will be voting for him out of sheer desperation; that shouldn’t have to be a reason to vote.

Being “for” something adds strength.

Being “against” something is an uphill fight that often ends badly. The Status Quo is no match for passion.

We need something to vote FOR… perhaps next time.
