I hope you’re going to vote! Register, research the candidates, and exercise this right!
Although I had set my mind on Hilary Clinton, I ventured over to www.glassbooth.org and took their test. Funny, I had more in common, 83%, with John Edwards and only 79% with Hilary Clinton. Even so, I think I’m sticking with Hilary. In my opinion, it’s about dang time we had a woman in the White House, and say what you will about her, I like her and admire her and her husband.
It may surprise people to know that I consider myself independent and try to vote based on the issues, but I think I lean much more left than one would expect. I totally support gay marriage, universal healthcare, gun control, getting out of the mess Bushy got us in over in Iraq, better education, tax cuts for whatever is considered middle class and under these days, and tax increases for the rich. Just call me Robin Hood! I believe in a woman’s right to choose, going green, and the government staying out of my home. What on earth could they get from a wire tap in my house, but a conversation between a 4 year old and his Papa arguing over whether or not Papa could wear his Cars underwear. I think the church needs to back out of the goverment and pharmaceutical companies do not need to control our healthcare. I think marijuana should be legal, but the itsy bitsy conservative in me, has never took a drag in my life.
Whatever issues you support, the thing we have to remember is that our country was founded on diversity, separation of church and state, FREEDOM! You are free to have your opinion, speak out about it, and vote however you wish. I may not agree with you and I’m sure most people where I live do not agree with me, but we have the right do agree to disagree, don’t we?
VOTE! Get out there and support whoever you support, but exercise the right. People think their votes don’t count, but they do! They do!! And can I just say, that I hope anyone who might be riding the fence at this point will take a spill off towards the left? ; )
