I Just Gotta Say...

I decided a while ago not to get real political on this blog. Many of my family member disagree with my politics (I am the Alex P. Keaton of my family), and we will not be voting for the same candidate. I am not terribly thrilled with either candidate, but you can bet your booty I will NOT vote for the one who supports abortion.

So I just have to put this out there. I cannot wait for November 5th. If I see one more Facebook tirade from family members and old school mates who went liberal, against the GOP, I will scream. And it is a safe bet that wherever you are, you just might be able to hear me!

Notice I have blogged this instead of putting it on Facebook where more people will see it, because I am a tad wimpy. But it's coming. Probably sooner than later.

I'm feelin' your pain... except that my family isn't on Facebook (except my sister who refrains from political stuff and just had a baby so is too tired to really care right now *grin*). It's many of our academic-y type friends. Ugh. And the frustrating part is that I don't even *like* McCain, and I have some doubts about Palin, but I feel forced into a defensive position on their behalf because of all the hypocrisy and nastiness being thrown around. (I feel that it goes both ways, btw; it's just that there seem to be way more people out there that I know willing to defend the Dems.)

I hate hypocrisy... too bad I'm such a political junkie, otherwise I'd be able to avoid a large helping of it. :)

LOL, I know exactly what you mean!!!

I have restrain myself every time I see a status update or a new group that someone joined. And, I'm such a wimp! I let my politics slip through with my "thumbs up" stories on Stumble Upon, but that's about it.

I have to admit, I was against McCain for the past .... um .... well, since forever. So against him, that I wrote a resolution for our local GOP party to pass that got nationwide exposure, LOL.

But, the idea of Obama is frightening and I really like Sarah Palin! :-) If he would have put up Lieberman or Ridge or Romney or .... any of the other short list candidates, I would have stayed home in November.

I don't think she's perfect, don't get me wrong, but she's right on most of the issues that I most care about. And, it was fun to see her come out both barrels blazing last night. ;-)

I just have to say as a Canadian, I lOVe your politics...I'm a junkie! I watch all the speeches and whooha...loved Sarah's speech, weather you agree with her or not, I loved it. McCains made me sleepy...good move getting Palin. She spices things up a bit. And, well, when all is said and done in the world of politics, these people are just looking for a job, theirs just happens to the longest, most public interview ever. Sure is fun to watch. We're possibly heading to the polls on Oct. 14th, we'll know more after this, ours are a much duller affair, but, I still love to enjoy my vote. And I too, will not be voting for anyone supporting abortion. That's it that's all for me.
