Yes, I know…you have to give them permission to steal your joy. Well, I haven’t given any of them permission…but…there they are…IN MY FACE!!
Right now there are hundreds of signs lining the streets I must travel…wretchedly ferocious advertising on the two TV stations I like to regularly watch just in case something has happened that I need to know about…like finding out this week that our water was possibly contaminated with e-coli. Yep. We learned of this from TV news almost a week after the test was bad. We did not get the news from our water company. How do you recall the water you’ve been drinking for a week? Unbelievable.
I don’t know what the statistics are but I am suspecting that the more vicious a politician is against his opponent the better his or her chances of winning an election. That in itself is baffling.
There is something sick about that outcome.
How can the good people of the United States of America be influenced by such irascible behavior of the politicians who seek our affirmation and expect to lead this country?
I am so disgusted with the political process that I’m ready to become an activist. Lots of people feel the way I do and just don’t vote. They give up. I want the “give ups” to get up and do something.
I value our freedom and our democracy. I value it beyond anything. I want my children, grandchildren and their children’s children to have the same freedoms.
I’ve always been neutral politically. I like to decide who I think the best candidate is that reflects what I believe should happen in our country. Then I listen and watch and read and vote.
I don’t want my vote to be a political one. I don’t want to vote against someone. I want to be able to vote for someone.
But who in "tarnation" can I vote for? They’re all spending so much money on advertising that defames their opponents. It just screams of a lack of conscience or true perception of what the American people need right now.
We do not need any more fiscally wasteful politicians in office.
Or any immoral ones.
I cannot witness such blatant abuse of the American public. Who do they think they’re “singing” to? They obviously think we’re ignorant. They must perceive us as being positively influenced by screaming, yelling, action, adventure, and mud slinging from our political candidates.
Fly your flag. Get involved to make a difference. Don’t let them treat you like idiots. Make an intelligent choice and VOTE.
