California Politics. Has Everyone Gone Nuts!?!

Politics is a process by which groups of people make collective decisions. The term is generally applied to behavior within civil governments. Emphasis on the world "civil"..... because actually, I don't see anything "civil" about politics. Collective decisions---no, not at all! There's people arguing everywhere, and it makes me sad.

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves. ~ President Abraham Lincoln

I really have had my fill of the election fighting! Has California gone nuts? Everyone's so mean. I just think that our state flag bear had a different meaning then swinging at each other. It's over the line. Is that the intent of our state symbol?

This is just a rant and I had to get it off my chest. I think what bothers me the most is the stress it causes everyone and the contention it puts in everyone's hearts. I know all of this bigger, harder, more hurtful messages will affect our children and desensitize them to think nothing of name-calling, black-mail, trashing  one another's lives and families, and children get the idea that deceitfulness is okay, to become powerful or to get "gain" in life. Life is hard enough to figure-out when you're an adult, let alone a child, we need to really watch and talk to them about what is bombarding children, young men and young women and also our single young adults. I'm not talking about as a censor in all things, but make sure that the integrity and downgrading of another is not at all what a person should make part of their personality.

I don't know about your state or country, but California has gone nuts. The state symbol of the bear was not intended for this:

It's Just Way Over The Line!
