We tend to like things to be neat and orderly. Two ways about it, no shades of gray. (Unless you’re reading stories by E.L. James.) The right way and the wrong way.
Life isn’t that simple. Similarly, politics aren’t that simple. Politicians are, after all, people. And people make mistakes.
Most would feel comfortable holding those in the spotlight to a higher standard. Celebrities. Policians. Wealthy business-people.
But, they are people.
When politics get messy, and they do get messy, it’s our responsibility to pay attention.
Three debates down, and now less than two weeks until the election. Early voting is up, and we must continue to be vigilant in our duty. Our duty as Americans.
Otherwise, it can get very messy indeed.
