This Isn’t a Political Blog — HonestPosted: September 4, 2008
Ok, so I said I’m not that political, yet here’s another post about it.
As I said, I’ve voted democratic my entire life — in everything. Yet this year, it’s not that easy for me.
I’ve always liked McCain — particularly after seeing him in person at a Town Hall Meeting about eight or nine years ago when I was still living in Vermont. (Side note: I do recall thinking then, wow, this guy is old.)
I may not agree with him on everything, but I look at him and go, you know what, this guy gave it up for me. And you. And everyone else. And while I know that alone shouldn’t get him elected, it’s an important thing for me. Especially this year.
Obama — well, he beat my girl. But, besides that, there’s just something about him. Something that makes me go, I’m just not sure about this. He’s an amazing speaker. He truly is. But has he done enough before this.
Back to McCain, the Palin thing intrigues me. It really does. And not knowing anything about her, I wanted to hear her speak and see how she carries herself on no doubt the largest stage she’s been on. The jabs aside (and I didn’t like Obama’s either), I thought she did pretty well.
But, here’s the point of my post. What do you hear about? Don’t talk religion or politics with people you like. It can get crazy.
This morning, thanks to Facebook, I found two people who I completely dig saying that last night didn’t do much for them. And that’s totally fine. It really is. How someone votes isn’t going to change anything in terms of whether or not someone is a good person or a bad person.
But it’s just interesting. That each of us can look at this so differently. That’s all I’m saying.
I don’t know who I’m voting for. I really don’t. But, I can say this, for once, I’m actually enjoying the process of seeing our system in action.
