Tuesday Randomness


This is going to be a bit different tonight. . .

My first presidential election was in 1992. Growing up in a small, very conservative town meant you were Republican. But then the age of MTV, where they did show videos more than reality shows, I promise, put together a town hall meeting with the candidates. Clinton’s campaign was based on a grass roots growth (I pink, puffy heart James Carvelle)  and was open to meeting with the youth of our country. Dole, not so much.

I took that as a hint that maybe I needed to dig a little deeper within the Democratic party. I voted for the candidate that agreed with my values. While I still believe that everyone has the right to own fire arms. . .I also believe in a woman having control of her body. I don’t think we should destroy what God has given us while looking for alternative fuel. There has to be a better way.

I took a lot of hell for my voting decisions when it came to my parents and normally, I try to avoid deep conversations when it comes to politics. It is what it is. The President isn’t the end all be all, that is why we have Senators and House Reps. The problem that seems to come up is the infighting from both sides. The prancing, the drawing lines daring someone to cross it.

There is a lot of work to be done to make this country great again. We need to focus on education, balancing the budget and work on meeting in the middle. We ask friends, coworkers, kids, parents, etc. to compromise. This is asked often, And it could be a silly reason, such as picking out a restaurant but I think the key to who ever comes out on top needs to have that come to Jesus meeting with the whole lot explaining that compromise is the way to go.

And just for the record, I took the test a few weeks ago, my top guy wasn’t Obama but an independent. Romney was dead last. My thoughts on this election cycle. . .I miss Bill. But I am looking forward to not seeing anymore ads on tv. Those got old.

For those that voted, thank you. It is a wonderful feeling to get out and vote.Whatever happens, we are all still Americans and we need to work together as one.

What you see is what you get; I am a Nashville girl who is single, again. I use the blog to get my inner, tortured, wanna be writer angst out. One day I just may write a book. I have been stumbling through life for 43 years now, I love to cook, read and figure out more embarrassing ways I can either harm myself (thank you hula hoop of 2010 and the case of the thrown back) or just prove how inept I am at household chores and dieting. The people you read about on here are real but most have had their names changed to protect the innocent and not so innocent. And I really should make a list of them so I can remember! Enjoy, read, mock, laugh and comment, it really isn't difficult. Plus, I would prefer reading comments from real people as opposed to the weird spam comments I keep getting. Plus, I will always find the hardest path to follow and take that one, why would anyone want to take the easy way?!
