As I sit here finishing up my latest painting, off work with a knee injury for weeks, waiting for surgery, I am discouraged about VOTER DAY.
I have done my homework, checking things out with my sis in Colorado — her husband was a state legislator for several years and keeps up on the political front like no other in our family. Well here goes, they went to SEE Rick Santorum, Obama and Ryan so far. Rick was my first choice after Bachmann ... Oh, I hear the groans coming from all my liberal "fans" in Marin now.
After much study online, with sis, and with the movie at the Northgate mall, Obama's America 2016, I KNOW I am not voting for him again. I did last time and even bought his buttons, donated from my low income, and thought a man of color was the "ticket." OMG, is that how they say it?
OMG, Obama is the one NOT to vote for this time. Yes, he is cute at times. He is a good father ... well, that depends on his girls, he listened to about gay marriage?? What father takes the PRESIDENT lead over what his kids told him was right at the dinner table?
I'm an old radical, and yes, a rascal too — I went to ACLU meetings, political meetings, marches and the like. I went to money raise for Kathleen Brown in my distant past. But this time around, I am wearing a Republican coat!
If you hate Romney because he is rich well, Obama is a multimillionaire, also!
It has been said that Obama is gutting America, ending our prayers, and for gay marriage as well as abortions. I have too much knowledge about all of those to say yes to them, or any person who runs for office with those issues in their "yes" column. I will at this point vote for most anyone other than Obama.
Enough said, I am sure my car tires will be flat before morning, my back will have a knife in it, and my American flag may get burned before Nov. 5.
Just please remember: This is our FREEDOM to vote who we believe in.
