The Tao of Politics

One of my main concerns is: how can I make a difference? There are thousands of political blogs out there. It’s easy to get lost in that ocean. So I may blog about politics on occasion, or I may blog about health issues, depending on where my interests lead me, and where I feel I can contribute something of significance.

There is an election today to find out which bald guy gets to be mayor of New Orleans. My money is on Mitch Landrieu simply because I feel that if Ray Nagin didn’t win outright, he won’t win the runoff. I think the April primary was his best shot. Besides, he only got 38% first time around. That means 62% voted against him.


It looks like the Republicans are getting serious about the 2006 elections, with initiatives like the gay marriage amendment, English as a national language, etc; issues meant to inflame certain segments of our society; issues meant to divide, not unite. They also seem to be trying to scare the electorate by “identifying a parade of horrors to come if Democrats gain the majority.”

What scares me, and I think the majority of voters, is more years of the STATUS QUO; more years of GOP policy; more spending, more deficits, more dying in Afghanistan and Iraq; more high gasoline prices; more corruption; more scandals; more miles traveled by our country in the wrong direction. We have a chance in 2006 to turn all that around. The future is bright if you think about that. It’s pretty dark if you think about more of the same, which is what the Republicans are offering us now.
