1. To express opinions or judgments in a dogmatic way
Okay, so apparently we now have 3 choices. A far left liberal, a self proclaimed "progressive", and a not so conservative conservative. I'm at a loss.
I guess it's going to be the lesser of the three evils. (I'll reserve naming him or her until later.)
But what I really want to ramble on about right now is where I believe this country is, and why it infuriates me.
(1). How have we become a country with such a feeling of self-entitlement? Do we really deserve to have the government swoop in and bail us out when we screw up with our mortgages? Where in the heck is the personal responsibility? You learn from mistakes... Oh, yeah, and it's a great idea in theory to provide everyone with health care, but have you been to the dmv, or any other government office? There's a model of efficiency and customer service for you. I can't wait to take my kid to the E.R. in the middle of the night and deal with the beauracratic red tape that awaits...
(2). Are people really voting on the issues? I'm thinking no. I have to say this (I'm going to get flamed), the general public are stupid sheep. Most people could not tell you who the speaker of the house is and/or what she does, much less what the candidate they are voting for ACTUALLY stands for with specifics. Let's get swept up in this great tide of change, and have the audacity to hope for nonspecific ideals and plans. But it's okay, we trust you, we just like your message.
*please note, if you have researched your candidate and believe in the issues he/she represents, you are not a stupid sheep.
I'm just at a loss. If someone, anyone, can explain to me why the government having even more control over our lives, and "shared wealth" is good, I'm really open to listen.
okay, I'm done.
p.s. apparently, if you are a Christian and believe that you have had a gift given to you by Jesus, you're a crazy. I just read this on a blog that I frequent (the name of which will not be posted). How's that, again?
