People have always said that Politics can be a sensitive subject. I never really cared about politics before, but this will be the first year that I can vote. (Just missed it last time by a hand-full of months.) Never had I imagined that I’d become one of those people who get genuinely offended by people who are incompetent. What does being incompetent have to do with voting? I’ll tell you; the way people are going about making their decision. These people (Facebook “friends”) are not doing enough research before coming to this, very important decision!
“Oh, he’s probably going to be better than what we have now.”, “He’s rich so he’s obviously good with money.”, “Obama hasn’t helped the unemployment rate.” NO, NO, And YES HE HAS!
I could go on and on about the good Obama has done, but most of it won’t appeal to the gay-bashing, bible-throwers that inhabit 80% of the entire tri-county area. And I could go on and on about what’s wrong with our country right now. Anyone who actually does do their research knows that things aren’t great, but it could have been worse.
And my opinion of Romney is that he is just a robot. A robot ran by a handful of rich Republicans. (Here’s a video of him reporting back to them.) Anyone voting for him who isn’t completely incompetent, (especially after the release of that video) won’t be voting for him in particular, but mainly for his party. Which is fucking terrifying! (They would seriously rather have a complete douche bag run the country, as long as he is a republican, than someone who is kind and has all of our interests at heart.) They have molded Mitt into the politician they want him to be. And don’t think for one second that he is rich because of “hard work” and “perseverance”. Everything was handed to him from his daddy, just like me. Would be like if I was nominated to run for mayor, but I’m not going to do that. I’m not a mechanical object that gets in way over his head, and is controlled via a detachable ATM. ~Shay
*Edit* – Mitt Romney’s latest “herp-derp” moment. (Seriously though, do you really want this guy to run our country?)
