If We Can Keep It
I tweeted about not having many followers on social media due to one thing.
I won’t follow the cause of the day.
I’m not going to list my pronouns.
I’m not going to post a black square.
I’m not going to MAGA.
I’m very much not going to post anything in support of Antifa.
I’m not going to do any of that.
I will speak up here and there and that shows my colors. (They’re red, white, and blue, btw.)
I’m all about each person that comes to me showing me who they are not what they are.
I believe in this country and in the good people here. I won’t go around calling everyone a patriot or a hero. I won’t drape people in a flag.
I also won’t sit and talk junk about one side or the other in public. I’ll keep those thoughts to myself and quietly voice them with my vote.
And I say one side or the other because I have been forced to the middle. I have never considered myself to be libertarian. I’ve always thought of myself as quite conservative with some liberal leanings in a few things. Depends on the subject.
But here I am just wanting to be left the (expletive deleted) alone to do what I want as a free citizen. Working the law and within reason, of course.
So that’s me, writing down my thoughts for today.
If you like that, fine.
If you don’t, well, that’s also fine.
It’s a free country, yeah?
If we can keep it.
