And the Pendulum Swings. Or does it?


I have always thought that the Political Forces in our country operate much like a pendulum. They swing to the left, and they swing to the right, but with each swing, they always swing back through the center, or middle, or norm, whatever you want to call it. Thus I have always felt that our great country would stay on an even keel, charting our destiny in accordance with our Judeo-Christian beginnings.

The last seven years has taught me differently however. If Outside Political Forces operate on the pendulum, pulling it further left or right, or stopping its motion altogether, it no longer swings back through the center. Outside Political Forces include a duplicitous Media, Super PACs, the Super Wealthy, Political Machines (Like the Clinton’s), Lobbies and Corruption, just to name a few. These forces are not elected by the people nor do they reflect the common weal nor do they affect all citizens equally, as promised by the Constitution.

Only if the pendulum swings unfettered will it insure the charting of our path to greatness. Only if we are watchful of the Outside Political Forces will it arc accurately and true to our values. Only if we become aware of all of the pitfalls and deal with them swiftly and concisely can our political system work properly.


  1. Great article. Agree 100%

    • Got your comment. Yours came “In Response To” ‘And the Pendulum swings. Or does it?’ Of the 7 comments I received today (mostly spam BTW) and the majority of the 140 other comments I have received, yours was the only one “In Response To” the Pendulum post, the rest were “In Response To” ‘What is a real President of the United States?’, a post I did several weeks back. Do you know why that might be. “What is a real President of th United States” is not a featured Post either, I thought that might be the reason. If you can look at my Comments section, you will see what I mean.
      Also can you suggest a good anti-Spam Plugin? WordPress has added “Askimet” to my Plugins. Should I install that?
      How did finals go?
