Back in February of 2010 I etch-a-sketched an article called “Repubocrats”…my term for the total “indifferences” between republicans and democrats. Upon watching sometimes up to 8-minutes of the republican natonal convention and preparing myself to contribute a similar amount of time to the democratic national convention I have realized my position in 2010 is still true.
I will excerpt some of the paragraphs from my earlier article…such as;
…As Repubocrats battle for camera time on the network news, Americans suffer from unemployment, lack of health care, lack of jobs, poor education, lack of housing and a corporate banking structure that openly laughs at congress while forcing Americans to “bend over” as they ”greet” the voting populace.
As Repubocrats publicly flood the airwaves and pages of newspapers with claims of working hard to solve this nation’s problems at all levels, they…in seclusion…split their seams laughing at the public for buying in to their rhetoric. Publicly the Repubocrats claim they are working to produce legislation ( health care in particular ) that each of the designated ( on paper only ) parties can live with. Just that statement should sicken all Americans. America does not need a health care plan that the parties can live with…they need a health care plan that “Americans can LIVE with”! Washington Repubocrats already have health care that THEY can live with…and, they make Americans pay for it. America’s latest, corporate induced, financial crisis and continued lack of health care in the most modern nation on the globe would be laughable if it weren’t so tragic…”
As most of America is asked to suffer through the meaningless speeches by the presidential candidates…each of which claims to know what middle America wants and needs…I am recomending the Cartoon Channel. It will be more factual and better reflect problems facing middle America.
So, how should middle America vote in November? That’s a tough one. We’ve all had to select the “lesser of two evils” in various elections in the past. What if there isn’t ONE?
While I can’t pretend to tell you how to vote, I do have a few suggestions. Maybe one of them will work for you as you close the curtain in the voting booth.
1. If you are religious go to you place of worship and watch to see if any writing appears on the wall that will direct you. You may have to try several places of worship and there is still no guarantee you will get a celestial email.
2. If you are a gambler, well…you’re used to losing no matter what/who you bet on so you won’t be disappointed regardless of the outcome.
3. A “medium” might work if you can find one that looks into the future rather than the past but, I’m not “seeing” that.
4. Lastly…there is always the coin-flip. I have found that if I flip a coin in the air and the coin “stays in the air”…I will make the right choice.
Whatever you do, do it with your best intentions and hopes for the future. We the people will speak in November. It remains to be seen whether anyone is listening.
Just a thought…So far each of us is still allowed to think.
