It's really popular to criticize our government. And frankly, there are a lot of reasons to criticize our government. It's also our "right" in a democratic society to criticize the government. But what does it really get us?
Does criticizing the government get us:
~ less taxes?
~ smarter, more productive civil servants?
~ happier life?
I don't think so.
Criticizing the government makes us feel smart and stupid at the same time. We are smart because we are better than the mistake ridden government. We feel stupid because these people represent us to the world.
Let's face it. The elections have been over for a long time. It's time to stop crying in our milk and get on with it.
Why not try something new this year? Why not wish our government and all of it's employees a good year? Why not wish them love and light? How about sending a little loving kindness in their direction this year? This doesn?t mean you have to believe everything they say or even agree with the current administration. You don't even have to like them. You are simply sending a little positive energy to help the government get the job done.
You'll feel better - less stupid and more hopeful. Who knows? It might actually do some good.
