Tonight on election eve, it seems we have some things to think about in the US. This is how my side sees it. It wouldn’t be my side if I didn’t tend to agree, ya know?
Points of Consideration by Michael Romani Discussing issues in commiseration There seems to be points of consideration That need to have a moment's reflection As our country chooses it's direction Should tradition and cultural achievement Give way to the erosion of aggrievement? Are we to be a nation of considered unity Or one trapped in struggles of identity? For me, it is best that we work together I fail to see how being victims is better And while I know that we all could complain How does that make things better and ease pain? Then there are issues of diversity and voice Progressives seem to value stratification over choice A free market of ideas is needed for our nation But progressives trample free speech without explanation This pains me as the Left has lost its dissenting voice And no longer cares to fight for the right of choice Trampling choices of education and health care And God forbid we should want our God to be there In my life as best that I might justly recall There has seldom been any occasion when one size fits all But this is the stifling bit of progressive conformity And it's quite maddening that they don't see its enormity It is in direction contradiction to all that is our nation And to all that most or many of us have held dedication This is the land of freedom and it seems that they forget Their own struggle to be heard and will one day regret Progressives have forgotten the part of We the People And have instead turned bureaucracy into a sort of steeple In which special rights overcome rights of individuality Seemingly forgetting the readily evident eventuality If we are imposed on by from the top down on all these matters Our republic will eventually rupture into a thousand tatters As We the People come to revolt against this masked tyranny Or worse yet the crazy ravings of believers in anarchy (c) November 5, 2018 Michael Romani All Rights Reserved
