What are you for?

News flash: our country is in a heated debate over certain bills and ideologies.  I can't even open Facebook without political whiplash these days!  But, even in (somewhat) non-political topics, like real food, or religion, I'm noticing a heck of a lot more information on what people despise than what people are for.  If I read one more "look what Monsanto's up to now," or," look at this ugly photograph of Obama frowning along with some witty-rude comment about our president" Facebook update, I think I am going to throw up in my mouth!  And I don't need to add a photo to this blog, because I know YOU know exactly what I'm talking about. 

I'm ready to hear what you are for.  I get educating on the "bad" topics, sure, but I'm ready to hear what you stand for without bashing the other 50% of the population!  You aren't going to win converts to your agenda by criticizing the uneducated or those who hold a different world view.

I want to hear what Christians believe- like, if your view is that the church should rise up and tithe to help unburden the government's responsibility, then why don't you encourage your brothers and sisters to tithe, and lead by that example?  If you feel so inclined to share your political views on Facebook, than why not use it to rally and rise up instead of rile up and knock down? 

Let's not give in to the political swindle of deception and suggestion, and rally up for a change with real ideas, real ideals, and comments that share that sentiment!  How would the political climate of our great country change for the better if we actually listened and shared instead of battled with facetious arguments? 

I dream of a world.....
