i find it harder and harder to keep the ideals of my younger years. But I see myself as a realist and an idealist. what can I say.
Politics broke my idealism and, like a pendulum, I swung between it and cynicism for a while. I settled into a realism that's sometimes uncomfortably impersonal, like natural selection always is.
The Democratic, and Republican (Parties) are about idealism.
Mitch McConnel, Newt Gingrich, Paul Ryan and etcetera are idealists.
As an example the pact to kill all of President Obamas initiatives.
There is clear evidence of the R's blocking Obamas goals.
I don't see it myself Chris I think the D & Rs are neither idealists or realists I see them as mere opportunists.
Or anti- Obamaidologies.
There seems to be a racist tenddencies to it.
