Okay, I have to admit something. Me, the woman who feels so strongly about our political system, is at a loss of who to vote for this race??? Okay, now I know half of you are cursing me out. Usually, I know who and what I want from the get go, and for some reason I am so confused this time. So I must lay my feelings out on the table.
I grew up a staunch republican in the great state of Idaho with our four electoral votes that usually did not warrant a candidate ever visiting our state. I did grow up however still believing that every vote counts. Hey, I am a social studies teacher. What do you expect? So, being a Mormon I feel that its just a given that I will vote for Romeny.
Unfortunately, I don't have a strong pull that way. I don't have a strong pull any way. True, the more educated I have become the more liberal my thinking, so I am more or less moderate in my views. I feel that the Republican Party has shot itself in the foot for the last eight years, and no matter the candidate they don't stand a chance.
I don't like Clinton, I think she just says what she thinks people wants to hear, and she has too many people she owes favors. I don't think Obama has anything great to offer either. So, here I am in a quandry. Wondering who? I can't believe I'm saying this, but I have even considered just not voting. That goes against everything I believe, but i feel that our country is in a strange place right now. Values and virtues are being tossed out the window, our economy is worse than depression times, inflation is out of control, and we are fighting a war that has little support. I know this sounds so gloom and doom, and that is a little how I am feeling. I really feel lost!!
Now, I know all of you have feelings regarding this, so please nicely inform me!!! Help me out of this mist of darkness.
