Today is election day, in case you’ve been under a rock.
In this country we have the privilege to vote. If you don’t want to, you don’t have to. Nobody makes us. But, in my opinion, you forfeit your right to complain if you don’t vote.
We don’t live under a dictatorship and there is certainly no royal lineage. We can all actually think for ourselves, well, most of us.
I remember the first time I had the privilege of voting. The year was 1988. My candidates of choice, Bush/Quayle, of course. Not even a Greek guy (Dukakis) on the other ticket could change my mind. I ain’t running no liberal show here in case you haven’t noticed.
Woops, did I type that out loud. Sorry.
Heck, it’s my blog.
I am going to be honest, I am sick of it all!! The rhetoric, the finger pointing, the smearing commercials, the pre-poll projections and the seemingly lack of intelligence by some.
I’m tired of all the questions not being answered by candidates and more importantly the thought of my taxes going up sickens me to new levels!
Yes, I have laughed at the SNL sketches. They’ve been a nice break to all the hoopla. Tina Fey rocks Sarah Palin. BTW, did you Sarah can see Russia from her front porch? How cool is that. Anywhoo.
I’m just going to leave it at that….because I could go on a tirade as to what peeves me about the candidates and their followers, but I won’t.
This country is so far off track from what our forefathers devised. I shutter to think what kind of changes may come our way in the next decade. I think the United States is at moral crossroads here. Again. It’s my blog.
Am I worried about this election. I’d be lying if I said “no”. I’ve been a worrier since I entered this world and 40 years later, I can’t say I’ve given that trait up. And, unfortunately, I think I have passed it on to one boy child in this house.
However, the difference is that I KNOW who is in control of every circumstance on this planet and in this country. GOD has a plan. I may not like it, but He allows us to be in certain situations for a reason. Elections included. God IS in control.
Ironically, the Bible verse I chose for my “life verse” many years ago is this:
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all they ways acknowledge Him and HE WILL DIRECT THY PATHS.”
Say a prayer and GO VOTE!
Then be sure to stop by Starbuck’s for a free coffee, followed by a free Krispy Kreme doughnut which can be dipped in some free Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. Gosh, I LOVE this country!
GOD BLESS AMERICA!
