30 Days of Composure

The clock is running with a little over a month until elections, while we watch or presidential (and vice) nominees.

 I don’t mind McCain or Obama, and no problems with Biden. I can’t say the same about Palin, as she seems to talk circles when asked a question, when she is running for an office that would have to replace the president if the need arises. We have a president in office that does that now.

My next concern lies in the smear campaign – which has always taken place – that politicians use. The interesting thing is that McCain seems to try to do most of the smearing. I’m not saying that Obama isn’t smearing McCain, but most of it is true, while so much of what McCain has been saying either is not true or is exaggerated.

However it turns out, this country needs good leadership to pull us back from the slump that the current administration put us in. Smearing is not going to help with that, for either party. The rest of us will have to be prepared for sacrifice.

Who Do You Trust?

Yep, been a while since I last posted. A stupid video game has gotten me addicted to it….

 So where were we? Oh yeah, and experienced presidential candidate with an inexperienced running mate, and an inexperienced presidential candidate with an experienced running mate. Both are saying the same things over and over. Both are stating they are for change. Both are going to cost this country more money.

Will we come out on top? This is anybody’s guess now. It comes down to the need for candidates that are willing to actually do something about the economy, the war, fuel and alternatives and health care. Another issue they need to keep in mind – how to accomplish this without running this great nation further into debt.

 Election day is a couple of months away. Roll the dice and take your chances.

Replacing the American Devil

There are a number of reasons to dislike George Bush, and in many cases it may be a struggle to find something positive about him, but here’s one: He’s almost out of office. The big question is ‘how much more damage can he do in another year?’ Probably a lot, unfortunately.

In the meantime we have a number of contenders running for the big chair. Have you learned your lesson by actually studying the candidates, or are you going on first impressions? Most of these people – democrat and republican – are good speakers, but who haven’t you heard that IS running.

I keep looking at the polls, and there is one Democrat and one Republican who would be those that I favor, and neither of their names are on the polls. The two least phony and most down-to-Earth candidates seem to be Democratic Chris Dodd and Republican Ron Paul. Both are concerned about ending the war in Iraq, health care and most views that I share. Not all, of course, but I wouldn’t expect that.

If you haven’t researched your candidates, it’s about time you start. Look here if you’re curious. It’s a brief overview, but is not in depth. Keep in mind that the most unpopular president in U.S. history was re-elected, in part, by those who vote strictly Republican. Many others didn’t look at the rest of their options, and went only with the candidates they had heard of. If we get another president that the majority of us despise, and you voted for them, you have no one to blame but yourself.
