Is The Glass Half Full, Or Half Empty?
By Pete Ketcham
There is an old adage that illustrates the difference in attitudes concerning a present situation. The supposed positive attitude is that the glass is half full of water, and be thankful that there is still some left, whereas the negative attitude is that the glass is half empty, and half of the original amount has been lost. It is somewhat difficult to determine what the prevailing attitude among the God fearing conservatives today is concerning our national situation, is the glass is half empty or half full?
It presently seems that the conservatives do not understand, or perhaps have forgotten how far down the scale we have come since the 60’s baby boomer generation began this national downward plunge. The main element of this decline is neither the economy nor the political world, but has been our deteriorating moral standards. These degenerating standards have been accepted in most areas of our nation, including the national public school system, which as we know, creates the “movers & shakers” that determine the moral course of this nation.
Many articles (mine included) have always had a positive spin, in the sense that “we are fed up, and are not going to take it anymore”, and thus we are going to change it all.
Also, the conservative talk shows (and many other types of conservative medium) spend a great deal of time informing us how bad the situation is, which I believe is an important element in the fight to save our constitutional republic nation, but unfortunately they offer no effective solutions or strategy. The sad reality is, we are losing ground on a daily basis, and have been for the last sixty years despite all our past and ongoing efforts to stop the moral downward plunge.
It is a positive thing that Donald Trump wants to “Make America Great Again”, and is in fact doing great things with the economy, the military, securing our boarders, and other issues, but through no fault of his own, is unable to slow down or stop the moral degeneration of our nation, and is thus “leaving the glass half empty”.
We all look ahead to the future, speculating if there is going to be an all out civil war, or perhaps the illogical liberal policies that are controlling states like California and New York will eventually collapse by themselves (we are already seeing some of the catastrophic results of these policies), with the collapse being accelerated by the adoption of policies such as the completely insane “New Green Deal”.
It is difficult to really see the future of our nation, for we are “sailing in uncharted waters” we have never sailed in before, but one thing is for certain, we are headed for national chaos if the moral degeneration is not stopped and turned around. Unfortunately I see no entity, group, or politician that can begin to stop this fatal moral plunge, and thus the glass stands half full, but is draining it’s last remnants.
