...but, I'm going to vote tomorrow anyway.
I'm dragging my card carrying, pro-life!, conservative-republican self to the polling place with all 4 of my munchkins to cast a vote for RED, in this bright blue state that is Illinois.
After coasting through the last couple of elections with only slightly getting caught up in the hoopla, I feel like I spent a lot of time reading, thinking and talking about this election, the issues, and the candidates. I must admit that I am much more dis-enchanted with the politicians, the news media and the voters than I ever expected.
This country should really be ashamed.
We are supposed to be the leaders of the world and this is the best we could do! UGH! Neither of the candidates will provide a plan for running this country that can be analyzed, discussed and debated. The voters are all caught up in boosting their own egos and talking about what silly, inconsequential thing the other candidate said or did. And, can I just say that I am sick to death of everyone saying to "just vote". Hey, if you are stupid, and don't have a clue about anything that is going on in the world....DON'T VOTE!! I know that I am opinionated, and like to be right, a lot!, but seriously, I really don't have a problem with people that have an opinion that is different than mine voting for blue. But, dumb, un-informed people just should not vote. Political groups take advantage of stupid people...Stupid people should stand up to these groups and just not vote...let the people that are paying attention to the happenings of the country sort it all out! LOL....how do you like that thinking...you can almost hear "God Bless America" playing in the background can't ya? :) And finally, the media, ahhh, the media is an absolute, friggin' joke. I mean seriously, we are in the middle of a huge financial meltdown and our news has spent hours upon hours reporting on the cost of the candidates clothes and whether Sarah Palin was breaking ethics rules by pressuring someone to fire her ex-brother-in-law for tazering his 11 year old step-son! Seriously, fire the moron cop with the tazer gun already and lets move on and talk about the *real* reasons that our economy is in the toilet, what is going on with the war, why we owe billions of dollars to CHINA! and why that is sooooo not good! How about some real news!!
Happy Election Day....BLAH!
