American Politics – Different Beliefs Are Good

If you listen to people and watch the news, you would think the end of the world is near.  America is the greatest country in the world with amazing opportunities for all of our citizens.

Are there differences in the opportunities?  Yes, some folks are born into very wealthy homes and they do get a leg up on the rest of us, but that is okay.  We can all decide to put our heads down and work like crazy to be a success.  Public school is readily available to everyone, we have clean drinking water and more.

We are very lucky

If you have ever been overseas or read my post about average incomes across the world, then you know this is not something we should take lightly.

Did you know the “Global median salary is $1,225, says leading economist” and to be in the top 1% of income earners globally you only need to be making ~$34,000/year after taxes.

Complaining about the top 1% when you speak globally includes a lot more of us than if we are just looking at the United States.

What about the importance of who becomes president?

Yes, voting is a big deal and we need to exercise our right to vote.  Men and women have fought and paid the ultimate sacrifice to allow us our freedoms.  Never take this for granted and always be grateful.

The great thing about America is we are made up of different beliefs.  Politicians resorting to mud slinging and crooked politics we should not let that effect how we treat each other.

A lighthearted video about two polar opposites getting along even with differing beliefs.  (Warning: It is Kid Rock and Sean Penn, so there are some colorful words being used in the video)

Fight for your beliefs and vote.  Also remember we are lucky to live in a country where we have opportunity, no matter where we come from.  No matter our race, religion or family income growing up, we can become as successful as we want with hard work and determination.

If Hillary, Trump, Jill or Gary get elected, this will still be true.  Different ideas and beliefs make us better.  Different ideas make us think about other possibilities.  If we all agreed all the time, we would be a very boring bunch.  🙂

Have a great day!
