I’m not going to state whom I’m voting for here, although I’ve made it pretty clear on the comments I’ve left for others to contribute to their discussions on their blogs.
What I’m going to do here is tell you *my* view on the stars of the show ’cause there is so much negativity on each of them, I had to put out there my own views. ‘Cause it’s my blog and I’m allowed to write on it.
#1 and let me be very clear here, I am a proud American. That statement alone gets me into trouble as of late, but I am. I love my country, and I love the countries of my ancestors: Sweden, Norway and Portugal. I’m quite the mix. I am 4th generation American on my father’s side and 3rd generation on my mother’s side (far as I know).
With that, let’s get to Monica’s Opinions:
Mr. Obama – This man has broken barriers! Do I care about his “color” as I keep hearing others (media really) discussing? Um, no. Color to me is: The grass is green, the sky is blue, my shirt is pink. That is color to me. I don’t see color when it comes to people, I see the beautiful spirit within – and that doesn’t have a color that I can explain. Kudos to you Obama for running as hard has you have during this election! It’s obvious you are a star.
Mrs. Obama – She said some things in her past about the country I love that I don’t agree with, but heck, we are all allowed to. In moments of disgust I’ve been known to shout a bit. As for her color? Um… I don’t see any. No issue there. Folks say her speech was “drippy” and “overdone”. Her hubby is running for President. She’s going to do what she will to assist. Why is it so hard to believe she’s a loving woman? You go Michelle!
Obama’s VP – Um, I know nothing about him. He did say some things about Obama negatively I guess, but he was probobly a HIllary supported. He was saying what he wanted to. Leave it be. I’m sure he’s a great guy.
John McCain – So he’s older? Do older people have to go inside and stop their lives at a certain age? He believes in the U.S. and wants to do his part. I don’t see an issue. Sounds like he’s quite a people person, and a person that keeps to his ethics and morals that he believes in.
Cindy McCain – I wish I saw more about her. I’m hearing she’s very much into philanthropy. I wonder why we don’t hear about her more? You go Cindy!
Mrs. Palin – She’s really neat I think. Here’s a momma with kids that go through stuff our neighbors go through, or even us. Sounds like she’s a good lady and heck she has 2 international boarders to deal with! You go girl!
Do any of these folks, in my mind, show the potential that is important to me – enlightenment and true value for peace and service to others? No.
To me, these folks are general people doing extraordinary things, but to bring on the peace that I would personally like to see? None of them show signs.
So, I’ll simply vote for the one I believe is the best out of them all.
Wow, what an election!
