I must be getting old

Or maybe I just started to form my own opinions. Gosh, it shouldn't have taken that long should it have? Oh well...

Hooray America! We have overcome some major fears and ignorances and elected the first (half) black president! Yay us! I can honestly say I am extremely proud that our nation has, for whatever reason, put a minority in the most powerful position in the world. Really. I don't agree with a WHOLE LOT if not ALL of what he stands for but dangit I'm an American and I'm going to support as best as I can who we've elected as misguided as I think we may have been to do so. Seriously though -I belive in earning your keep, working hard, repecting the life of those who can't speak for themselves, holding people accountable for their choices and helping those who cannot help themselves. If you can't read between the lines sorry... not going in to it here. All that matters is we elected Barak Obama and we have to stand behind him united - no matter how much we might not like his positions.

As Walter and I joke, 'Hey, now we don't ahve to pay our mortgage! Now we get even MORE money for being mediocre, and if we quit our jobs we'd be even better off!'

Not in a millions years, after all I have small kids to be an example to right?

The thing that absolutely KILLS me though, is that gay marriage is apparantly not ok and a threat to our society, yet destroying perfectly legitemate lives is? The mass murderer or child rapist deserves a break and it's cruel to him him/er but an abortion gone wro ng is a question? I shouldn't have a gun to protect my family and potetntially kill that threat but there's nothing wrong with killing an innocent soul that I believe with all my heart is a soul ? Now that's just screwy. I know the fundamental difference is when life begins and I wouldn't dream of trying to change someone's mind, but to me - birth control is a choice, not creating a life then taking it away. Our morals have just become so lax and we are so desperate to not hold anyone accountable for their choices that we've become a nation of lazy, selfish and greedy people who feel like they are entitled to anything they could possibly want.

But really....I'm not afraid of change or the attempt at change. Bring it on Obama, show me I'm wrong. I'm eagerly awaiting a prosperous nation that is LESS self indulgent. I'm happy to save the environment as long as thousands don't go hungry becuase we are too impatient to transition in a planned, controled manner. I'm all about helping anyone who needs help as long as they can demonstrate that they truly truly need it.

I want so badly to belive this is the change we need, the face of a new more tolerent, wise and equal America. Please, please let it be true and please let it happen!

but for the record I'm extremely suspicious of people who speak so eloquently that they aquire a flock regardless of the the actual words

Get out and Vote!

Some funny quotes I found:

"...Lest we forget that unless we tote the line with secular progressive Obamanation theory, we have no superior intellect and thus are unworthy of opinion. "

"Nice, the only thing you've left out is how nice it will be when government controls my thermostat or the for that matter, it will be really nice when I won't have to make any of my own choices and then I can work really hard and get paid the same amount as the guy sitting next to me who is NAPPING!"

*I'm voting Democrat because I know government sees the big picture, knows where my money should go andwill do a better job of spending my money than I could.I mean, I'm always getting myself into debt beyond my own ability to pay.

*I'm voting Democrat because it's alright to kill millions of babies as long as we protect the public by keeping violent, convicted murderers on death row alive.

* I'm voting Democrat because I believe businesses in America should not be allowed to make profits. Businesses should just break even and give the rest to the government so politicians and bureaucrats can redistribute the money the way they think it should be redistributed.

* I'm voting Democrat because I believe guns, and not the people misusing them, are the cause of crimes and killings. If we outlaw guns, crime will go away. Just like in Washington DC, New York City, and United Kingdom.

* I'm voting Democrat because when someone with a weapon threatens my family or me, I know the government can respond faster through a call to 911 than I can with a gun in my hand. Besides, Sarah Brady says a gun at homeis a zillion times more likely to be used against me. Only thegovernment should have guns because they never hurt anyone.

* I'm voting Democrat because I believe three or four elitist liberals should rewrite the Constitution every few months to suit some fringe element that could never get their agenda past voters.

* I'm voting Democrat because illegal aliens are not criminals, are not sucking up resources that Democrats give them through government aid, hospital services,education, or social service, but are just people trying to make a better life by coming to America illegally. We can't blame them for that, can we?

"I admire and respect McCain, but when people like Dan, Shame Hammity, and the fat guy spew thier verbal diarrihea, the stench of thier petty arguments make it hard to stick around to hear if they have any real issues to discuss. Every day people don't have the luxury of concerning themselves with Bill Ayers, when they have to worry about feeding thier kids, keeping thier job, paying the rent."
