State of the Society

I had this great post all worked up in my mind yesterday about this election and all the things that are making me so angry. Well, I went out for drinks with some co-workers and it didn't get posted. Now I have calmed down a little and sorted out in my mind, what I shouldn't say.

Everybody needs to vote, it is our right as American citizens. We can all sit around and complain about what is wrong and what we want from our world. If we dont vote, we lose the right. I should say I don't care who you vote for, but I would be lying. Everybody wants you to see their candidate as the ideal one for the country, but that would make the world a much calmer more relaxed place to live.

One of the things that got me fired up yesterday was a political stunt that used Halloween as it's excuse. This is completely offensive to me, click here. This should be offensive to all of you too. Can you IMAGINE the headlines if this was done to the other candidate? It is disgusting!! I don't care if you are black, white, purple, green or anything in between, it should be offensive.

It would be naive of me to hope that race won't be a deciding factor in alot of peoples minds. Either for or against, any questions, click here. (it may be offensive) I could only hope that people could really look at the facts of each candidate and make the best decision for them. It is completely absurd to not vote Republican because you think it may be more of the same. Bush and McCain are two completely different people with completely different backgrounds.

I have only been old enough to vote for the last 20 years and in that time I cannot recall a time that I voted for a Democrat in any election. This will not be the year that I change my history. I will be voting for John McCain. I look at their platforms and goals for their presidency, I agree with more of John McCain's ideals.

Something to ponder as you prepare to vote on Tuesday, November 4th, click here.

This is one of the reasons I'm drawn to you as a person. You speak your mind and heart without any fear or shame. I grew up in a household/culture where you don't "sugarcoat" things just so you come across more politically correct or, dare I say, nice or polite. I was taught to say what I mean and mean what I say.

Good for you ;-)
