Todays the Day!

Oh man I tell ya, I'm no more feeling the desire to vote than I did months ago--years ago..even the last election. I just dont care for either one of these men. I struggle with voting Republican simply because many believe the "Christian" stance of the candidate. I for sure cannot vote for a man that has the morals of Obama either. I'm truly stuck. I feel the need to vote, since so many died for our rights and yes I believe its imperative for our country. I love what Patriotism stands for, I hate what its become in our country. I'm so disenchanted with politicians and what they have become. To me, they've made a mockery of our country, morals, God, and they seriously have to laugh every time one of us--stands up and claps for them, sends em money..etc. I cant imagine any American wanting to send any politician money--especially when so many of us--can barely keep a roof over our head. But.....we continue to do so and we continue to be blindsighted by what a leader is suppossed to represent. Call me weird--old fashioned--a dreamer--etc...but to me--a President should truly, truly want to represent US...all of US...the country, our needs, protecting us. Instead--the only ones getting their needs met--are the government officials and the people that work in it. The rest of us are slowly losing everything we have--including our freedoms. Literally they are quietly and slowly taking away our rights--choices, money, safety...etc. At least to me..thats my humble opinion. True morals, true christianity is LONGGGGG gone in politics--its all about power, greed, and the pulling the wool over each and every one of us. I personally think no matter WHO gets elected--it dosnt matter anymore. Until we truly open our eyes and demand better of those who want to run for our country, we are gonna continue getting "crap". I'm so torn...I will spend the day consulting God as to what he wants me to do, even if its just showing up at the polls--and voting for neither--and leaving a comment on my ballot that simply says--They both stink--they dont deserve it and I refuse to pick the better piece of crap.

6 Thanks for your comments!:

I love the way you write. I am not from the USA but have followed the election for a long time. I agree with you. I wouldnt know who to vote for either. Can you vote for the Greens there? Anyway all the best with it. And I so agree with you on the need for us all to rethink what people in these positions are meant to do and stand for. Love the honesty you always show in your writing. Says a lot about you as a person!

Join my club. I don't consider it much of a choice when you have to choose between to different deaths.

Either side of a scratched coin still make the entire thing worthless.

Well, its over and now we have to deal with it. I'm going to look at it this way--new man,,new beginnings--possibly. There is so much hope hinging on Obama-I personally feel if he dosnt honor his words or if this country dosnt see measurable change-in 4 years theres going to be an upheavel. I cant see this Country getting any worse..our morale's just cant take it.
