Some good in all

I live in KY where one of the big rivalries is between the University of Kentucky Wildcats and the University of Louisville (KY) Cardinals. I have found that many of the UK fans and many of the UL fans are not really fans as much as they are haters of the other team. They can zero in on the bad things the other teams does and celebrate joyously when the other teams meets with defeat, but are generally oblivious to the good and the bad of their own (so called) team.

I have found the same to be true in politics .. There are so many Republican haters out there claiming to be Democrats and so many Democrat haters out there claiming to be Republicans, when all they do is fill the airways and blogways with anti-rhetoric. They cannot espouse the good qualities of their own (again, so called) party, because they are too busy hate-mongering the other one.

This same spirit exists on the blog of the National Democratic Party and the websites of the Republican Party.

We CANNOT fix all that is wrong in America by tearing down the opposing views of fellow Americans. If we will be defeated in the World arena, it will not be by a terrorist strike, or on the blood soaked battlefield of an enemy. It will be because we have wounded the heart of America and ripped it asunder.

Keep finding the good that we all do until we find the way to all do good.
