I don’t know if it’s depression, disgust, or anger, but I find myself avoiding politics. I know where I stand, I know why, and I have a hard time accepting that anyone could really believe that another Republican President is the right way to go for the country, especially when his running mate is that awful woman. Seriously, she’s making us look bad. Really, really bad. Every time I think of her, her running mate, or the election in general, I shake my head in dismay. My kids say the won’t vote because there’s no point, even though they have the first black man running for President, and though I encourage them to vote, I agree with them. I like Obama. I’d like to think he means what he says, but to be honest, he’s a politician and I am cynical. I’ll believe it when I see it.
And while we’re all wrapped up in Presidential politics and the economy, can we PLEASE remember why our country’s in so much debt in the first place? Our idiot President started a war with two countries that did nothing to us, and as a result: 606 US Soldiers killed in Afghanistan, and 4,180 US soldiers killed in Iraq.
