It's All About a Girl Tired of Being Lied to Thing

Dear America,

...feel like "Jules" from the movie St. Elmo's Fire...'just so tired of being lied to.'

what's a girl to do?

just where does a girl turn?

and dare I ask, just how do we save the country without losing our sanity, if not our total self in the process?

real relationships are kinda like that -- we must somehow cling to who we truly are, while at the same time, learn to let go of parts of ourselves...you know...in order to create that more perfect union.

Nobody is perfect [nobody].

Nobody will ever be the all and end all; that 'all' is already within us [in theory].

In my experience, looking outside ourselves to fulfill anything  -- whether it be an emotional void or tangible capital interests or anything else one can dream of  -- usually results in catastrophe for everyone involved.  The key to fulfillment is becoming that which we need, want, desire and aspire to be ourselves; while the attraction of someone who so-called 'completes' us, becomes simply the icing on the cake.

Scratch that.
We should really be the icing, too...

...perhaps... the one we ultimately attract should  be considered more like part of our decoration... like a rosebud, or the swirling scallops found gallivanting around the edges, or the  dreamy layers of chocolate mouse or butter cream only known to those within the circle of our inner sanctuary.

'Jules' kept living her life inside out; always looking for the guy, the drug, the piped-in  imitation cream filling to do whatever it was she couldn't live without...also known as the things she should already be doing [being, creating...] for herself.

As a nation, we need to stop looking to the outside...

Certainly, after the ever-loving sweetness of Herman Cain has gone so wrong -- and so completely burst our bubble -- we hurt; that was a tough one (after all, we were so committed, you know); it is no wonder the most common refrain I keep hearing around me is something like, 'I'm done with politics'.  I mean, my goodness, talk about a blow to the heart and soul.

Everything we saw in him was utter perfection:  the anti-Washington layer, the outside the beltway layer, the businessman layer, the simple man from humble beginnings layer, the man of character who adores his wife of something like 43 years layer (can't exactly remember just how many years, but frankly my dear, I don't give a damn). And anyway, I feel like we all got a handful of cake up our nose with this guy, and not in a good way. 

But us silly Americans easily fall for the wrong guy, now don't we.

we are just that trusting, we are just that believing....I mean, look at how hard we all fell for Obama. And when I say 'we all' I really mean, you all...at least enough of the party of YOU to make him king.

Oh I'm just so tired of being lied to.

But first off: it would behoove all of us to work on all of us, and by that I mean beginning with ourselves.

If this is the best the GOP has to offer [the one who is ultimately becomes "the one" facing the best the Dem's have to offer... and by that I question whatever it is they see in Obama], then it should ring a few bells and whistles; we have work to do [on ourselves!].  Collectively and Individually, we have so much work to do.

That's pretty much all I needed to say today.

But if I had to choose........

The only one left I really trust is Michele Bachmann.  And in my mind she's got a couple things going for her -- one, she is not a man.  And two, she is a woman.

A strong woman.
A woman who already knows who she is already.
A woman who doesn't need anybody else for anything more than what she can already be, do and have for herself.
A lawyer.
A Congresswoman.
A mother of 28 kids and counting.
A wife.
A woman.

A woman who seems to live by a firm faith, from a foundation of sound principles and values; a woman who leads with her character shining from every part of herself. [or so I believe, anyway, outside looking outside...]

I think I love her. With Bachmann, I just might be willing to risk another broken heart.

Make it a Good Day, G

got a little 'tongue tied' on the video for the day -- click on "it's all about a girl tired of being lied to thing' and see for yourself.  Great vibe to play loud and dance with yourself.  happy tuesday...
