Polock-tics.... no offense...

Well everyone - we vote tommorow!! Raise your hand if you are done with the PO-LOCKtics. When I say Polock- please dont take offense to that word. I use it because I have a bit of polock in me, so it is a self demeaming term, therefore ok for me to use - right? What I am trying to get at is, that EVERYONE acts like a bunch of IDIOTS about all of this stuff. I feel that its one of the most important things we MUST do to keep our country from becoming comunist, socialist, totalitarian or anything else but democratic!!! If the candidates want to impress me, STOP talking about why you should not vote for the oposite candidate!!!!!!!!!!! Tell me why I should vote for you! It should be up to us and IS up to us to find out about a candidate BEFORE we vote for them! What they stand for, against and what good things they want to do for our country. I am sick of Obama being called "The one" - I am tired of hearing about McCain being a 'Mavrick'.... on and on and on. I am tired of hearing how Obama is more experienced than Palin... last I knew, she was running for VP not President - what does her ability have to do with his? Becuase McCain may die during his presidency? Well, if thats the case she has at least run a governing body in her life. Obama is a senator that has little public exposure as a senator.... Senators legislate, somthing that Democrats seem to think is more note worthy than actually running a governing body... To me someone who votes yes or no in a matter is less 'in touch' with what the public really wants. Its no differant with McCain, except one thing - he has been in the public eye for MUCH longer than Obama. I think that they BOTH have good ideas, however they both have large faults. I dont like Obamas record of voting, or lack of and I dont like McCains health care proposal..... I think there are so many things that we dont know about, I am sure of it! One thing that really disturbed me is the fact that Obama wants to take Military recruiters out of the schools - therfore causing a large number of loss of enlistments in our military. Now dont jump all over me, I didnt say I suported all aspects of our military or what they are made to do - I am just saying that by doing this it could move us to being a non-military nation in the long run. THAT would scare me - this is why - China will NEVER not bear arms. They still kill their own, directly or indirectly. I did NOT watch the Olympics because of the persicution in China of thier own people... anyway - If we dont have a strong military do you really think that anyone is going to 'just be friends' with us? HECK NO!! Learning by example is a great thing, but does not work when it comes to defending our country against attack.... We have resources that the rest of the world COVETS all the time....
Now for McCain - he is rich and helps the rich. That scares me as well - for the simple fact that it makes people believe that ONLY the rich have rights. This kind of thinking may push poor folks to think that socialism, the redistribution of wealth, is a good thing! This is just voting for the less of 2 evils instead of voting for a good, solid president.

As far as the economy, thats our fault and no one elses. Blame who you want, but when your expense's excede your income that is YOUR choice to go into debt. If you go to a bank and they lend you money that you dont have, that is thier problem, if you accept it - thats yours! People are not living within thier means - that is thier own fault. I get SO SO SO tired of people blaming others for the short comings of thier decisions. If you have $300 and $275 is need for rent, you dont go spend it on new cloths - PAY YOUR RENT!!!

This is the only political post I will probably ever right... If I have offended anyone, I cant say that I am sorry because these are my opinions and I am not sorry for how I feel. Feel free to leave me a comment - I dont do the anon thing becuase if you want to say it, stand behind it people. Grow a pair!!! Milk Dud is!!! LOL

I am a retired military man and agree with all of what you say.
Our problem it is that so much easier to blame the other person and not accept the responsibility ourselves.

I am still not sure how I will vote, I wished I had another choice.

Mrs Mom said...

Train Wreck said...

Good job well said! I agree totally with the spending! If you know you acan't afford something? Who do you think will pay for it?

Karen Deborah said...

yeah grow a pair! Good speach sistah, a lot of good sense. Abortion is very important issue to me, so is same sex marraige and I do not support either. I think most of America still thinks that way but it's hard to know for sure. I am still wondering why people who are against Christian ideals want Holy Matrimony anyway?
It used to be that hip was just living together. More political manuevering.

Well said! And a lot of what you said applies to our latest Canadian federal election too. Dawgonnit, but I'm sick of the mudslinging!!! I had a real hard time making my choice at the ballot box cuz nobody offered anything positive to vote FOR. Now if our countries were run by us sensible bloggers . . .

Shanda said...

Well said Heidie, I read yoiur whole post to my husband and he said "that is a smart woman". He said he woyld vote for you if you were running. Why can't the big wigs running just see how normal it really all is. You are right about the lessor of two evils this campagine. One of the two evils is gonna be running this country and now we have to decide which one our family can live with.
You go girl.

I like your Polock view. Makes total sense to me, then again I am mostly Finnish!
I made my stand on my blog today. For different reasons..but with all the thoughts that ran through your blog.
Nice expression of your views thanks for sharing..I do not blog about politics often either:)

A friend of mine says that we need to remember that Politics comes from the Latin, Poli- meaning 'many', and tics, meaning 'blood-sucking insects'.
