You all know I try to steer clear of Politics. I don’t believe Politics and Witchcraft mix together at all. But I have heard enough bull this election year that I think it is alright to voice my opinion. I am going to try to keep my opinion neutral as much as I can (but that is really going to be difficult, lol!). I also want go urge each of you to get out and vote this November. You have plenty of time to go to your local Registrar’s office. It’s simple, it’s painless and probably takes about 5 minutes if that long. So you have plenty of time and it is simple as apple pie, go, do it, now! Well not right now, when you get through reading this, lol!
I am going to start with Bill Clinton. I know some of you aren’t going to agree with me. But I think he is the best President I can remember. I know he got caught up in that Monica thing but it didn’t effect his judgment in the Oval Office. As far as I was concerned, he could screw anyone he wanted but as long as he kept the country in good shape. And if you remember times were good. Everybody that wanted to work had a job. The economy was fantastic and when he left the office we had a huge surplus of money.
Well next here comes, George Bush. That ought to be enough said right there but…..when things started going bad, I remember what his words were. “Well we have had it good for so long, now we have to pay for it!” said our lovely President. I just wanted to crawl through the TV. Pay for it, hell isn’t it our right as Americans to have and expect our lives to be good. After eight years of Bush and Chaney, I think we all know the answer to that. All they were doing was padding their pockets were they would be set when they got out of office. But he made so many screw-ups, it was take two pages to write about them all. When dear President Bush left office we were trillions of dollars in debt. In eight years, that man (Bush) destroyed everything Clinton had done to make our country great again.
Now we come to our present President Obama. Obama is a very intelligent man. You can tell the way he talks and in his mannerisms. Everyone is upset that we don’t have jobs for everyone right now. We can’t pay our mortgages. We are losing everything we have. I know times are horrible, believe me I know. But stop and think Obama inherited a hell of a mess from Bush. Bush had eight years to totally destroy the country and he almost did. How on earth could anybody, I don’t care who it is, straighten Bush’s mess out in four years. You can’t do it. No way. Also Obama has Bill and Hilary Clinton at his side. The Clintons are the one that turned this country around the last time. I believe they will give him sound advice to do it again. But there is good news occurring, you just don’t hear about it. Or else they don’t want you to hear about it? Stock markets up, factories are opening back up and starting to hire, new factories are being built, things are looking up. We do have a good future with Obama.
Now comes Romney, I don’t know I guess I have watched this man like a hawk. From the very beginning there has been some kind of controversy in his campaign. What gets me about him is every time he comes out and says yes he is for something, then he finds out it is not a popular idea. He will distance himself from it. The one that sticks in my mind is a Republican Congressman/Senator brought up the topic of being Pro-Choice. They wanted to reverse Roe vs Wade. Romney jumped on the band wagon till he found out that really isn’t such a popular idea. He jumped off as fast as he jumped on. He has done this on several issues. My concern with that is, he will be in the White House will the little red button that launches the nukes. What’s he going to do, decide to push it and then go, “Oops, I shouldn’t have done that, that won’t be popular with the people!” What people, we will all be dead. Then he has made remarks that make me wonder which planet he is on. I don’t know if you have had a chance to hear he latest comments today or not. He was addressing a $50,000 plate dinner and someone hid a microphone under a desk. They wanted to see what he was really like in a more relaxed sitting. They got their ears full. He said the poor in this country thought they had entitlement, they expect the government to keep them up, they didn’t pay taxes and who gives a damn about them. They don’t matter. Well, I don’t know what that tells you, but I know what it tells me. He is out for the rich and that’s it. Time he gets out of office, he will have packed me up and sent me back to Ireland. I sure ain’t rich so apparently he don’t give a damn about me so why should I be here. Does he want America just to be for the wealthy?
I had to start a new paragraph, I got to thinking about what he said and it just makes me angry. What about all the homeless people in this country? What’s he planning on doing with them, sweeping them down the gutters? Every time I pass a person out on the interstate ramp with a sign saying they will work for food, it kills me. To think we live in the greatest nation on Earth and we have people sleeping in the streets, people starving and children going to bed at night hungry. It is absolutely appaulling! The current shape of this country is due to Romney’s buddy Bush being in office for eight years. I shiver to think what will become of this country, if he gets elected.
And I said I was going to try to stay neutral, ha! But this is a very serious time in our country. You need to get out this November and vote. You have to weigh the options, then think who would lead this country in a better direction. What they always told me, if you don’t vote you can’t bitch, lol!
You go register, if you aren’t and get out this November and vote!
