Of Acorns and Grass Roots

The Acorn

The Acorn

The tiny acorn is often held up as an example of a small seed that can grow into a mighty oak tree. Planted, nurtured and protected in fertile soil by grass roots, it will sprout a tiny stem and begin to grow. As it grows, it takes the soil so necessary for it’s growth away from the grass roots closest to it. As small leaves grow, they provide shade to the nearby grass not consumed in it’s growth.

Eventually, the shade completely engulfs the area in darkness, cutting off the light and absorbing the rain, all the while depleting the soil of nutrients necessary to support the life of the grass roots. Everything in it’s shadow dies and is absorbed into the oak in it’s never ending thirst for it’s own, ever growing power.

From afar, the mighty oak looks magestic and bold with branches seeming to reach to the very heavens.  It is an inspiration to those who look on from afar. But you must get close to see the destruction that this once tiny acorn has left in it’s path. Grass can no longer take root in it’s shadow and the very intity that protected and nurtured the acorn are swallowed up in the ambitions and self importance of the oak. The perfect balance and natural order of things has been replaced with a beautiful destructive force so powerful that by the time those that would get close realize it, they are consumed.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
