There are so many things happening in our country that seem to tax one’s political side to the max. The Presidential Election! Wow! There’s a lot to take into consideration. It would be great if we had two really outstanding candidates; but unfortunately, it just seems we are voting for the lesser of two evils. I know that just “raised the hair on the back of your neck” for some; but I just think everyone is trying to rationalize and stretch the positive points.
What happened to the truth in politics….or was that ever a possibility? Why does everyone have to skirt the issues? Why can’t they just ‘say it like it is’?!!
MONDAY GETS POLITICAL….or NOT
Don’t you think it would be wonderful to have someone stand up in front of the nation and say….”Hey, I’m not perfect and I don’t have all the answers, but I am going to try my very best to get the job done. I’ve got a great team behind me and if I don’t know something, you can be assured my staff is going to work to find all the details to inform me about the issue so I can make the very best decision.” And…then actually do that!! Instead…they skirt the issues, lie when they feel it might slip by and rarely just say “I don’t know!”
There’s so much diversity in all areas in our country right now. There are people who will fight to the end to honor and protect our country….and there are those who find it appropriate to picket a funeral of a family who have just lost a son or husband fighting for our nation. There is complete destruction on the East Coast from Hurricane Sandy and then there are areas that seem almost immune to anything except blue skies and balmy breezes today. Gas prices dropping by at least a dollar a gallon in California….and little gas available in New York/New Jersey. But, everyone, no matter what their circumstances, is looking for some balance, some certainty, some kept promises…..some hope. Wouldn’t it be great if tomorrow’s election provided that?!!
Some people that read this Blog aren’t from the United States. I wonder what they think about all the debates that have gone on between the candidates. I wonder if it seems very appropriate and common or rather sounds like a bunch of whining kids who are trying to get their way!!
I guess it could always be worse. We could have no freedom, no choices, no right to vote. We could be living in war zones and fearing for our lives every moment of the day. I just think we sometimes take what we have for granted and some take advantage of the freedoms we are given.
So for this new reign of the elected officials of our country….whomever it might be….
I wish for some forward movement of resolving some of the issues of healthcare and national debt and unemployment and an overall struggling nation.
I wish for the citizens of this country to be able to feel they are being represented and supported by candidates who are sincere in their efforts and follow through on all their promises.
I wish the candidates that are elected are true to their word and can see the struggles of many and fight to make changes, so some of the suffering can end.
And….I wish for this Monday to indeed be the start of something new and exciting. Wouldn’t it be nice to get back that American spirit and everyone be able to feel proud to be an American. I think we have lost a little of that.
So remember to vote tomorrow
and choose your candidates wisely.
Let’s hope brighter days and good times are just around the corner.
Onward and Forward!
