I wonder if you all get tired of hearing this statement: I found another blog that I love to read (stalk, addicted to...whatever)!! Diva Ma has such a fun blog and we share alot of the same views on alot of things!!! Anyway, she does a post on Tuesday where she picks a subject and "Tells it like it TIZ". Normally, I just go over and read her rants (most of the time agreeing with her) and comment to her; but this week she has invited us all to join in!! Head on over and Tell it Like it Tiz!!
In honor on the presidential election, I'm going to discuss something that really irritates me!! I have always strayed away from sharing my political views on here (as I have with religion as well), as I don't want to have to get in a pissing match with somebody while defending my views on things!! And even today, I am still going to stray away from sharing most of my views, although I will tell you I did vote for Obama!! What really irritates me is how irrational, how crazy people get for "their" candidate...and how they make you feel that you are sooooo wrong because you don't choose who they like or agree with their views. I mean seriuosly people, we are still going to wake up tomorrow and feed the kids breakfast, get dressed and go to work.... Now, don't get me wrong-- I am all for change and making this country a better place, but it won't happen over night (in fact I think it will take a while to see some changes) and who are these people to try to "PUSH" their way of voting on me!! I have the right to choose who I want and you have the right to choose who you want; so, don't look at me like I'm an idiot because I feel differently than you!! A couple of weeks ago, we were out and had been drinking some adult beverages and somebody brought up the election--- wooooaaaa, rule # 1: do not debate religion or politics after you've had a few to drink....especially with somebody who is on the other side of the fence!! Anyway, he ended up screaming and yelling about how wrong I was, and how could I think this and how could I think that.... Hmmmm, last time I checked I was in the good old U-S-A and I have the right to my own opinions, right??? I guess my point is, it doesn't matter who I (or you) am voting for...I am still the same person on the inside-- the same cool, fun, wild-n-crazy mommy (ok, maybe not so cool) :) . So, why do some people get so ridiculously crazy about it?
Like I said, I normally don't want to bring up politics here (i leave that to Diva Ma), but I do have a question....that I really hope does not stir up a big debate: The friends that I have/people that I know who are voting for McCain, most of them say "Wow, what a perfect pick Sarah Palin is... she was THE BEST choice he could of made". Do you really believe that or are you just trying to support your party?? Do you really think out of all the governors, senators, whoever, that she was THE BEST pick for the VP position or did he just sell-out in trying to win this thing? This is not a bash on you and your decision to vote for McCain/Palin.... it's just curiosity on my part!!
Whew, that felt pretty good.... I hope she lets me do this every week!!! And even more, I hope you will continue to come check me out even though I puked my political rants on here!!
