YESSSSSS PLEASEEEEEEE SPARE US FROM MUDSLINGING CAMPAINS!
I did sit threw the whole speech Kerry gave lastnight, the only speech I watched from the convention. I wish I had wrote down my thoughts as he was giving them cuz I did find my self talking at the t.v. a few times. I will give him this, who ever worked on his makeup did a good job, he didn't look as scary as he usually does. And I rated the speech as good, not great but good. There was a few things that did get my goat and maybe after looking at the full speech in print I can write on it. I am glad the convention is over. I wonder if the news will give the same coverage for the Republican one? I wonder how much of the speeches are written by the people giving them? I know they have speech writers and all that, but isn't the point of giving a speech being it is something you yourself want to say, not words put in your mouth? How much better or worse would Public Officials Speeches be if they actually wrote them themselves? LOL I do find myself kinda sad over just how divided our country is on all the issues. How can anything get done when one half of the country hates the other's views? How much can a President really do anyway? I have seen two in my adult life, from different parties, both saying they will do this or that, yet don't do even half of what they set out to do because of Congress or the Senate controlled by opposing parties. My husband would say that is a good thing, gives restriction on what a President can do, a leash if you will, that is why he voted for a republican president and a democrat senate. *eyerolling here* I don't think of myself as very political but I keep my eyes open and watch what's being said, I don't always post it here. I know you have to look beyond what the press says because often they don't give the full story or have their own slant on it. I have come to loath the commentary the anchor ppl give and how they try and interpret everything for you, like we cant think for ourselves. I think I have come to the conclusion of who I will vote for but also that really it doesn't matter too much who I want in there. Ultimately it is up to God who he brings to power and who he brings down but here in America we have a voice in the process and my fear is God will give America just what she wants. And then we are in for an even bigger mess but America don't complain and don't whine, you got what you asked for. Really I don't see much hope in any politician, they say they work for you and your interest, but it is true of both parties, its who has the money to donate to their campaigns they listen to or who gets their attention the most, thus lobbyist have a job. I vote my values and my conscious and put my Hope in God.
