Live long enough, the pendulum swings back

by Jan Schroder

I was a devoted sports fan when I was teenager. If my teams lost – and they often did – I’d feel sad for days. Later I questioned my choices, but remained loyal to my school and hometown teams. After decades of devotion, some became champions, others may never. 

Things went differently with American politics. I chose one team and they only had one rival. The wins came often enough, but the losses seem to injure more deeply.

And then I realized American voters provide gravity, inexorably pulling the pendulum back towards center. Our founders were genius. I thank God for it.
