Think for Yourself

To me, it’s mindless, brainwashed party supporters who ruin the idea of a free and democracy. They believe very lie they hear and then pass them along for others to believe. If the party wanted them to join a suicide cult, they would, without even thinking. If they told them to vote for them, then immediately jump off the empire state building they would. If they wanted to bomb every city and town in their own country, the mindless followers wouldn’t hesitate to put them in office. If only people, Americans, could think about things for themselves. Take everything with a grain of salt, and then determine through your own conclusions what fact is and what fiction is. “Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who has said it, even if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.” Buddha. I’m not asking for them to be correct, or know everything, or be perfect, just that they should think an idea through. I’m also not trying to jump to the conclusion that no one thinks for themselves or has reason, but I am saying that common sense isn’t as common as one might think.

About lbannister117

I’m the outdoorsy kind of girl, one of those rugged beasts. Try hard, play hard, take no prisoners kind of people. I have the intelligence, and the feminism, but yet I'm still the hard-core ‘one of the guys’ kind of girl. I enjoy the company and views of others, and love having in depth conversations about everything under the sun, whether it be politics, the weather, an event in history, the news, or simply a good story.
