I am not looking forward to the upcoming elections. I love and am very blessed to live in a country that has the freedoms we do, including the freedom to openly complain about the mess we're in. Too often, we overlook how truly lucky we are to live in a place where we can openly air such frustrations.
What I don't like, however are our choices for leadership of our nation. There's no way I will vote for Obama; I didn't like him four years ago, and I still don't like him today. Looking at the Republican candidates, I am wholly underwhelmed. It's looking like it might boil down to Romney or Gingrich. Really? Those are my two choices? An inept politician or a total scumbag? Come on, as the third most populous country in the world, can't we churn out better candidates than those three?
Oh wait, we can. They all seem to be in third parties, however. So if you want to vote for someone who can do the job, is a decent individual, you have to sacrifice your vote for a politician who can't win. The best you can have is 2 out of 3, and quite frankly, that's just not good enough for me. When will things change to a place where we can have a candidate who is an upstanding individual, able politician, and who possesses the ability to win the election?
Hold on, I hear something. Is that the sound of two cats mating? Nope, it's just the sound of the American people being screwed again by the bureaucratic, top-heavy government. Again.
