This is my last post in this topic..
I lied.. It's a Presidential thing to do..
What burns me is this.. I've been voting since able, in 1983, and I'm SO TIRED of voting for the lesser of two evils..
November of 2012 we're making a choice between these two clowns due to a two party system (for the most part).. Seriously.. is this the best United States can come up with??
I fear that anyone with the real intelligence to run this country like it should is smart enough to not want the job, so instead we're stuck with the power hungry egomaniacs that only know how to do one thing.. Campaign..
Obama is a darned good speaker, as long as he's got a teleprompter in front of him to tell him what to say.. Romney... He's not even interesting enough to want to listen to, so I wait for the speech to be done so I can read it..
But are either of these two the quality the country is in need of to have as our Leader? Not even close..
The Republican party (and the Democratic party) will need to quit relying on the Flash-in-the-Pan representatives as leaders, and actually take a step back and bring in actual leaders.. This year's republican candidate is nothing more than the least hated of the bunch.. What a joke..
When I bought my home 13 years ago, I jokingly said I was going to secede from the nation and declare my 100'x100' lot the Land of Fred, ruled by my cat Annie... It's less of a joke every year.. Unfortunately the ruler of Fred is getting old and I doubt if she'll be around come spring..
She's never lied to me, she lets me know when something's going down she doesn't like, and when I pay taxes (aka-soft cat food pouches) she lets me know she approves.. In return, she curls up next to me at night and gives me comfort..
Could she be a better ruler?? Sure.. I could do without the occasional puke, and if she could clean her own litter box it wouldn't break my heart..
But at least I know exactly what to expect from her.. I wish a Presidential candidate could be so trustworthy... (and that's from any party)
Speaking of party, what the heck am I doing discussing politics? I already know how I'm voting, and for most of us, no pissing contest is going to change our minds.. Democrat or Republican (it really is a two party race) we're not going to change our minds.. We hate the other side (hate's a strong, but truthful word) and our minds are closed because of our lifestyles, beliefs, and life experiences..
I was informed that a friend's niece married a guy last year, they adopted 3 kids and both were working, and paying taxes (like I do).. They then adopted 2 more kids, moved to Texas, and are now doing NOTHING, and making more money than ever through welfare and other entitlement programs.. They have no problem posting photos of vacations to Disneyland, Jamaica, Alaska, on Facebook, all of which is being paid by me, a working tax payer..
I'm tired of supporting those who are capable but refuse to work and be productive, and instead live off of my tax dollars..
I think it's time for me to jump on my Triumph for the weekend..
For those who don't agree with my political beliefs, that's your choice.. I'm not going to change your mind, and you're not going to change mine.. Argue my points all you wish because I don't care.. I wish I could vote today so all this election's crap would be over with..
Pismo, I've voted for Ron.. I'd do it again, but only given the chance that it would do good in defeating the African Muslim.. (actually, I don't have a problem with Africans or Muslims, as long as they don't lie to me, telling me they're not either of them)
