Please don’t misunderstand my point. I wasn’t speaking of political ideologies so much as expressing sadness that there is so much evil in this world. The way I see it, President Obama is hopelessly misguided. He probably thinks he’s doing good, but his ideology always ends in ruin and despair on both individual and cultural levels.
In regards to his upbringing, you’re absolutely right. Some people come out of really dysfunctional families to become truly great people. Others are raised right, like you wrote, but rebel. However, the odds are greatly stacked against someone like Barry Dunham. They really are, and his policies are going to help create even more Barry Dunhams.
That saddens me.
