POLITICS

I don't really like them. However, I am glad for the country we live in and the freedoms that come with it.

The first presidential election I voted in was in 1992. I was very proud...probably a bit naive, but proud and I loved the candidate I voted for.

Each year, I have been very proud to put my mark on the man I truly felt was best for this country.

For the first time, in 16 years, I will not vote FOR someone. I will vote AGAINST someone. God help us all.

I'm not crazy about anyone either. This will be the first time ever that I didn't go into the voting booth and without a shadow of a doubt know who I wanted and believed him them 100%.

I have to say LL you definately pinned the tail on that donkey. I too am voting against. But not voting with conviction for anyone. It almost feels sad.

P.S.
I think you should all have a round for me tomorrow! P.S.S. I don't drink beer (often).

Happy Birthday Party!!!

Not sure who you all decided on voting for, but I am voting for Hillary. I think we need universal health care and she is the only one who really cares about us poor folk. I have extra yard signs if anyone needs them!

Yup, I, too, will be voting AGAINST someone. I don't like any of them enough to vote for them, but I do dislike one of them enough to vote AGAINST them.

Too bad I will be cancelling out leslie's vote.

Les...if you keep it up, I'm going to have to moderate your butt right on out of here. LOL!!!!

Lesli said...

I do not understand you people. She is for the middle class. Go Hillary!

Mary W. said...

Hillbilly is for the middle class as much as Al Gore invented the internet

Lesli said...

Anyone who wants health care for us all really cares and Al Gore did invent the internet!
