Honesty is a pain

I am realizing that my political choices may be losing me friends and that is how it will have to be. I am not where I am in my politics because I haven’t worked hard to get things right in my mind. I know how I got here and it has been along a path that I have carefully followed, step by step, carefully and cautiously. So, yes, I am stubborn, or perhaps stubborn here is just another word for deeply convinced about what is right and wrong and good and bad. My criteria for political decision making begins with humane and sane, the test, consistently so and absolutely sincere. I know of but one candidate for president who can be certified as such and for those who want to be angry and nasty to me for convictions I have worked hard to develop, so be it.
