After spending these last months listening to the debates, the candidates speeches, and all the hub-bub over the elections - I've made my choice. It's not much of a surprise to me, as I knew as soon as the party candidates were picked that I would be voting on one side and only that side. I have been wanting to write a post about the candidates, making points over certain things they said, and listing the pros and cons of each; however, my low self-political esteem made it difficult for me to feel confident enough to post about it.
Now in our final stretch, and as throngs of people flock to the voting booths for early voting, I can't help but throw in my own two cents - or my own can of worms. Here's what I think:
1. A republican through and through, I am voting for McCain.
2. McCain was not my republican choice.
3. H Clinton, Palin thankfully is not.
4. Palin's speeches about oil and natural gas and how she "took them on" is driving me crazy. Can we not talk about anything else? Please?
5. How many times can they bring up Joe the plumber? Leave the poor man alone.
6. Obama, a good speaker; yes, but the more he pushes the whole Robin Hood, saving the middle class, the more I cringe at the US being pushed into a socialist style of thinking. It just feels like it's something to say, or hype about, perhaps to make him feel better for being rich?
7. I am the least likely person to speak about politics, but as I like to say "for heaven's sakes" I've had enough. I am so annoyed at my choices this election I get angry every time I see any candidate speak.
You could say that this stay-at-home-mom doesn't have all the facts, but this SAHM has seen enough to make her decision, I don't like it, but I'll get out and vote - will you? Did I open a can of worms? Tell me what you think - and please, be nice my friends!
