Yes I am thinking about not voting and to tell the truth I am not alone. Thousands, maybe millions are already planning on doing it too. But before you jump all over me and call me a communist, let me post my flag so that you can see I am a true American.
So you still think I am copping out? Then you really don’t understand what I am talking about. Many Americans are going to not vote in this election. Now I don’t mean they are not voting, I mean they are not voting. Did I lose you? In the words of Ricky Ricardo; “Lucy you got some splainin to do”
When I hear people talking about this election, many of them don’t have a favorite. They only have an unfavorite. In other words they aren’t voting for someone because they like that person, they simply don’t like the other person. Let me give you a few examples that I have heard.
I’m voting Republican because Obama is a Muslim and that’s just not right.
I’m voting Democratic because McCain only picked a woman VP to get the women’s vote and I am not falling for that.
I not voting for a black man
I’m not voting for an old man
Most of the people I hear talking about this election are sighting reasons for not voting for someone. I don’t hear nearly as much discussion on why their particular candidate is the right one. Maybe we Americans need to get over these things and concentrate on what we want and not what we don’t’ want.
And now that I am up on my soapbox or as you ladies say; “have my panties in a wad”, (no I am not really wearing panties, however these briefs are riding up today for some reason) let me tell you another thing that some people are basing their decision on.
Can you believe it? I can’t believe that people would actually vote for someone because of the way they looked.
Ok maybe it happened once but never again.
And one final issue and then I will get back to my normal funny self. This message is for ALL candidates. Quit including me in the “what Americans want is…..” speech. From now on I want their speeches to say: “Americans, with the exception of Greg want........” Candidates feel free to use these:
Greg doesn’t want a better job. He already went out and searched for it, he worked for it and he got it.
Greg doesn’t want universal health care. He wants his healthcare. If someone wants healthcare, let them go out and get a job like Greg did and earn it. Greg should get better health care than someone who sits on their lazy butt all day complaining about the government. There I said it.
Greg doesn’t want us to drill for oil and mine coal in every square inch of vacant land. Greg wants our government to stop selling our fuel to other countries because he knows that we have plenty if we use our own resources.
Greg likes it when his kids pray in school. He sees nothing wrong with that. There that makes two things out of the closet this week.
Greg is just plain strange isn’t he. Ok now that I am on everyone’s bad list let me go get to work.
Have a wonderful day and please remember; "Don’t not vote."
