<climbing up on my soapbox>
I for one will be ssoooo glad when this election is over with. I’m so tired of seeing this crap on tv. Everywhere you turn, it’s something about elections. City, county, state and federal level. It’s overwhelming!! Don’t get me wrong, I love being an American and having the right to vote. I fully plan to implement that right. I’m just tired of hearing about it. I should note that nothing I state will be about any certain candidate or my choice or voting preference in any way!!
I’m especially tired of the news. The news is trying to turn this election so badly that it’s not even funny. They media will create a poll just to have a poll over crap that nobody should even care about. The news is trying to make the story instead of letting Americans make the choice themselves. My worst fear is that the people are listening instead of paying attention to what they should be….the candidates!! I can listen to one man say something and watch the news or read the paper and the media will indicate that he said something else. There is no such thing as fair journalism.
I will also say that all these radicals that are trying to get my vote aren’t helping their cause any. The more crap I hear, the more I turn away from their candidate. I’m about voting records and who’s getting what done. I don’t care about sex, race, religion or any of that. I want to know who’s voted on what or declined to vote and who’s lying. I don’t need manufactured lies. I want some truth and not the way some party person or the media sees it. For those that don’t know, you can easily access the federal web site and all voting records are a matter of public record. QUIT listening to the speeches and the who says what….check out the facts!! SHEESH
My other huge issue is all the babble over Sarah Palin. I’m tired of hearing how unqualified she is. She is running for Vice President, not the President. I’m fully aware that she’d be second in command. At least she’ll be voted in as VP and not assume that role like Hillary did through marriage!! Anyway, I stray from my point, which is that 16 presidents were Governors before becoming President. The Democrats didn’t seem to care when Billy Clinton was a Governor of Arkansas and became President. What makes him any different than Palin?? I dare you to answer that honestly!! Ronald Reagan, who was a Republican was also loved by Democrats. Last time I checked, he was an actor turned Governor and then became President. Let’s not forget Jimmy Carter. Not much needs to be said about that. One of the greatest President’s ever, F.D.R. was a Governor prior to being elected President a record 4 times!! Again, I ask, why can’t you just accept that you’re terrified of Sarah Palin and know she has what it takes to be Vice President??
By the way, I’m not saying one way or the other who I’m voting for. This is just a bit of the crap that I’m tired of hearing about. I watched some of the analysis after the debate tonight. They asked some college students their views after seeing the debate. A few said they were swayed toward Obama because he’s the only one that mentioned education. Let me just point out that he NEVER said he was going to help or do anything for education. He merely said that he’d been to college…some good colleges and so had Michelle. I don’t see how that says that he “talked about education”. Did he ever serve a single day in the military?? Has he ever served the people in any way?? Ah yes, issues like this are of great irritability to me. Let’s at least stay realistic and on FACT!!
Alright, I’m done with my rant. Will it change anything?? NO!! But I feel a little bit better. HAHA I’d just like to say that people need to realize there are many ways to get change. If you want real change, don’t listen to just the speeches or debates. Go to their state web sites and U.S. government web sites and check out voting records. Look to see who’s changed their story the most. Look to see who’s just saying what they thing people want to hear. The media sure doesn’t know. They only tell you what they want you to know and who they want you to vote for. And for pity sakes, don’t vote by party. The party vote is the worst thing you can do. Not every Republican or Democrat is good. Vote by the candidate that is most qualified and is going to do the most good. A nice face or suave persona doesn’t make for the best person in office. It takes a whole lot more than that!!

Ah, I feel better!! Nighty night all!!
