For anyone out there who reads my rants and says, "well, of course, you feel this way, you only vote Democrat," I say to you, I don't get an option. When candidates of any party start to discuss women's rights, pro-life, anti-gay, creationism, and, in general, anything that pushes your beliefs onto my civil liberties...I'm out. I can't hear anything else that you might have to say, because I am now fighting for my life and my children's future.
In this election season, I am more appalled than ever before. Always, there are people that vote against their own self interests, yet this year feels far more divisive. Is it because there is a black man in the White House? I do think that has made some people crazier than they were previously. The fear can't be hidden. What happens if the general election is between a Mormon and a black man? What if it's between an Evangelical Catholic and a black man? Where does that leave the rest of us? Why does it matter? Why can't it be about policy? Jobs? The economy? Healthcare costs? I don't want to hear about religion. Not at all.
This is going to be a very long and arduous Presidential election year. I will think twice before posting political items. My heart is a bit sick from it all and it's only March.
Sidebars: Fashion Stars premiered last night. If it works, it could prove to be revolutionary. We shall see. I think that Will Farrell's new movie could prove him to be genius. Clearly, if it opens big....Oh, did I say that Rick Santorum won in Mississippi and Alabama?
Feel free to re-post or forward to a friend.
