In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Flip Flop.”
Ohhh an opinion I flip-flopped on… I have a few. I’m an open minded person and I listen to facts I don’t toe a party line (politically) and I don’t believe that everything in the Bible means exactly what it seems to say. (Uh oh… stuck my foot in a pile of mess there i’m sure)
Example: I lived in Arkansas under Bill Clinton. In my humble opinion he sucked royal amounts of donkey hooves. When he ran for President I was a firm: Hell no! Not my vote.. not ever! He’s bad for America! He wrecked my state… LOOK at our numbers. However: The next term I saw what he was doing, and he was doing well. Financially America was pulled out of a deficit and there were changes being made that helped Americans. I believe it was Bill Clinton who reformed unemployment standards and now there’s a program that allows the employment agency to help people train for jobs… and demands proof that you are searching for jobs in order to get your money.
The next term I voted for him. I saw a change in the middle class… someone who didn’t just talk a bunch of promises and not actually deliver. He represented the middle class THE backbone of this country and instead of breaking it, he braced it. Without the middle class there wouldn’t be an upper-class. We the middle class buy the crap the upper class produce for sale; when we can afford it.
