I am sick of this glamour election. I am sick of all the people involved in it. This country has stooped to a new low in this election. It seems to
get worse every four years. I have yet to hear either party say one thing that would persuade me to vote for them. Instead they run around the country
and world like rock stars for the praise and worship of their blind followers.
You see I am a conservative, but don't think for a minute that I will vote for you just because you are against abortion, or that you support the 2nd
ammendment. I also somewhat liberal, but don't think you can fool me with your charts and figures of health care and poverty levels.
You can tell me you want to keep my family out of poverty till you are blue in the face, but that won't do it either. Talk is cheap.
You see when it comes down to it we are all being lied to by our candidate of choice. Be it he, or she, Republican, or Democrat they are nothing but
career politicians with an agenda. They do what the "money" tells them to do with no regard to your or my welfare in mind. They may even believe
they are doing it for the countries on good, but in the end it is all self-serving deeds.
Government used to be run by the people. The people being farmers and laborers, lawyers, doctors, and so on. They didn't make their living sucking
the blood from the country. They held real jobs and lived in communities where they had to interact with real people whose lives depended upon their
votes. Politicians now are so out of touch with society that they have to rely on slanted polls to even make a decision on policy.
We as a country are going to have to put a stop to this vicious circle of voting in fat politicians who got that way with off of our hard work and
belief in a Country of freedom and morales. We are hated and ridiculed by the world. Some of it may be jealousy but most of it is because of our
arrogance and lack of concern for anyone but ourselves.
That being said, I love my country and proud to live here, but I am ashamed of what is happening to it. I do not profess to know how to fix it, I just
needed to say it and get it off my chest. The thing is there has to be someway to stop this downward spiral. A true leader with the true values and
concern for the people.
So, where is my candidate? Why is it that someone cannot run for office that the majority of us can believe in as a true leader? Someone who is still
connected to us and not living in a mansion looking down at us. Maybe he is out there but I can't find him. Can you?
