Two hard things we have to deal with in life, love and politics, first let’s tackle politics.
|The Daily Show With Jon Stewart||Mon - Thurs 11p / 10c|
Let me tell you I've got a degree in psychology and personality assessments have to do with my job quite abit in sales. When someone wrote to me, "I also need to be with someone who can be honest and up front about how they feel and what they are thinking.", and, " I guess that I am looking for someone who challenges me to be a better person - someone that I respect”, speaking of what they were looking for in a politician. I thought, ‘that sounds a lot like love’ and I said, “A lot is said here if you’re serious about that.”
Sometimes people say things like this just because it sounds good to throw in abit about being open to shall we call it 'constructive help', which is better than 'constructive criticism'. (lol) Most of the time however people are very happy with who they are and they don't want to make any changes, mostly because changes when it comes to who we are, especially changes for the better, are for the most part very difficult because it 'bends' us, and in so doing it 'stretches' muscles that haven't been worked or that are weak.
You look like you’re in pretty good shape? Do you work out? Well, if you do than you know how a good work out, will make muscles sore the next day, and the worst day is two days after. It's the same with our personality and character that have to do more with emotional, mental, and spiritual well being. Can you imagine working character muscles or mental, emotional, or spiritual muscles that have been neglected for a long time?
It's bound to be a little uncomfortable huh? In politics, writing my name, Cody Judy, on the ballot, for U.S. Senate, might be a political move that hasn’t been exercised for a long time, but maybe is needed now for overall improvement and strength. Let’s go back to love.
If the guy of your dreams walked by you in a grocery store, and he was your soul mate from Heaven, and there would be no other time and place on Earth that you would ever cross paths with him again, and this one meeting at the grocery store was it. Somewhere in the back of his mind he felt an attraction and though he was scared of rejection himself, he managed a "Hi..I usually don't ..you know, approach someone at the grocery store in the cereal aisle, but I think your beautiful and umm... is there any way I could make a date with you, or we could exchange numbers?
Your answer to him, and remember this is your soul mate, and God is watching you blow this shaking his head thinking, she's gonna blow it..., you say to him, " I'm sorry, I bet you do it to all the girls, you’re probably a stalker, and I'm too fearful to take a chance on you; bye" ?
That's just a scenario, but I mean what happened to the courage of someone. I don't want to meet some stalker women either, but I think if you want guarantees on 'love', or politics that your really just trying to 'control' it, instead of like letting it fly like a butterfly and grow, and mature. Love needs time to grow and mature, it's not something that we can go purchase because we're tired. We have to constantly be willing and open to its' floating into our life... do you think I'm wrong here?
When someone asks questions, I don't know if you know this or not, but it tells you something about that person. People who want guarantees could in the extreme case be paranoid, they might be chickens, have no fiber or strength to make it through hard times, so who wants to get hooked up with someone like that? Why have you been voting for people who have been voting for the trouble we are in, yet you don’t want to change your vote or challenge the Party Power? While women are most attracted to security, guys have more concerns than beauty meeting the eye.
I'm sure you know guys have just as many concerns as girls. Some girls don't want anything to do with someone who makes less than $500,000 a year. They're tired of going to work, they want to relax and quit and never want to ‘worry’ about anything again. Now on the male side, we don’t want to just be liked for our money, position, or power. While it may be a slice of the pie we are, it is just a slice.
That's not what love is all about. Those type of girls will never get what they really want because they are unwilling to work at it. Love is a lot of work, and if you’re tired of being single, then maybe it's time to get to work and realize that love demands unselfishness, courage, long suffering, and a bond that is loyal to the principles of individual agency and so does politics.
Do you want to know a secret? Everyone wants to find that love. That love that is secure and free and warm, however very few people are willing to apply the same principles of the love or politics they want in their own life in order to receive it. Why should love come to you, if you’re unwilling to give love what love is willing to give to you? So it goes, we flee from what we really want, and jump into what we don’t need or truly want.
These are just thoughts... but I like the grocery store thing. Has just letting things happen naturally become so removed from our daily thought process that it's foreign? Have Main Street and Wall Street and the Banks, and the Customers become so fearful of losing everything that it has frozen them up from actually achieving what they want to achieve? I think so.
Don’t look now, but if writing my name in on the ballot seems so much harder to you than punching a hole in a piece of paper, or hitting a button in an electronic ballot box, then you probably don’t deserve me and you probably deserve just exactly what’s being dished up to you by the politicians you have been voting for the last decade. John Stewart gives and excellent commentary above of what happens when principle is sacrificed for prosperity, the prosperity will come to an end.
With love have we come to the point where we want a full disclosure of the last 5 years tax returns, a full search of credit and criminal history, and a personality assessment done by a computer before we go on the first date?
Well, it might keep us from getting burned? Well, it might keep us from taking the risks and thereby being rewarded with our trust also. That’s more about how America was built then the guarantee thing. Let’s face it, the guarantee thing hasn’t got such a good record either as we are seeing with the Federal Reserve. Remember the promise they made after the Great Depression. Give us the keys to the kingdom and this will never happen again? What a lie!
Can you see where when a human being gives you a guarantee that they themselves are playing the role of god, and they want you to worship them in their own image, their own intelligence thereby dis respecting any intelligence that might be greater than their own?
Boy I’ll tell you I know how scary love can be. I like the song that says, “ but if you get the chance to sit it out or dance, I hope you dance.” I hope you write my name in, CODY JUDY, for U.S. SENATE Utah, because as in love and politics, I may be a hard leap of faith, but if you make it, things will change.
The time has come when companies and banks say you’re crazy not to get a guarantee, but God recognizing this makes a fool the wiser one, and catches them in their own pit that they dug for you. While it may take more work to write my name in on the ballot then to simply punch a hole in “Party” down the line, the work will be a joy and you will feel a feeling of empowerment when you walk out of the polling booth knowing you have given the finger to “Party Power”, and put your hope in the individual power our Constitution is more in line of supporting.
