Politically Incorrect

We Ruffians are Masons. And as such we like to keep to the tenet that most things of a religious or political nature are not discussed in lodge.

Of course this isnt a proper lodge. However, for our internet community abroad, this website will just have to do. Which is why you fellow Masons won't see a lot of political mumbo jumbo or pandering on this particular site. Frankly, if you want to know more about what I think politically, on a more personal note, then feel Free to check out my personal gonzo blog . Just be advised that the Ancient and Illustrious Order of the Three Ruffians in NO WAY affiliates itself with this blog. Ruffians wont have it!

Still, as Freemasons, we Ruffians cannot escape our duties as citizens. If you are from the USA as I am then you will understand why I say with pride that this is OUR country that is built upon grand Masonic tenets. And, I for one, intend to keep an eye on it.

I am proud that we have a two party system. And from the look of it I think that it is functioning pretty well all told. In my opinion, if either the Republicans or the Democrats usurped control for decade after decade then our Country would be the poorer for it. America must remain a balanced and civil standard of Freedom. And to be this, it must always allow for dissent, contrast and even opposition of a political vein.

I applaud the achievements of both party Candidates. Both men have led exemplary American lives and prospered under the Red, White and Blue. Debate is critical to the lifeblood of a culture of freedom. I wish them both well and hope that it is not the man, but the people of America who ultimately win in the end.

I would urge that all Freemasons pay close attention to this election, whatever side you may be on. And I would caution you to look for the good in both of the Candidates so that you do not fall into the traps and snares of judgment, prejudice or small mindedness. The issues are what matter now. And on the way to making a good decision we should never enslave our minds with the poison of anger, mean spiritedness or the like.

We must look for the Light in each man, as we must in every man. And we must strive to uphold, even in spirit, those high Masonic ideals that the United States of America were founded upon.
