I’m so sick of this election, seriously. I just want it to be over. I don’t care to learn about the “real” McCain or Obama, I don’t care about how one side is twisting the hell out of the words that come out of someone on the other side, I won’t be voting for either of these clowns, I-DON’T-CARE. Thinking about it any further, about the direction the country is headed towards, and the mindless “changes” that we’re being promised makes me a little suicidal, quite frankly.
I know it seems silly to get this upset over it, because when you look around at your things in your house, the food you eat, the car you drive, in general your life, you don’t think about the impact t hat politics has. It doesn’t effect your day to day life, except for maybe the cost of gas for your car. People go to work everyday and take care of their kids, and with all of this happening, whats $30 out of paycheck going to taxes, and having to get your car’s registration updated? I can understand how the prospect of free health care (believe me, I know hard it is) and day care and getting bailed out of your mortgage payment , wire taps on intl. calls, and metal detectors in every door way can seem appealing. It’s easy to not really think past what you’re being told, because with everything else, you still don’t think it could possibly effect the quality of your life, and in fact with those things it might make it easier and less scary to live in this world.
But the truth has been, thus far, none of these things come without costing some of our freedom, even things we should be entitled to, like quality health care, would be compromised, just as they have been in other parts of the world with social health care systems. As Penn Jillette said, we’re better off having the freedom to take care of of ourselves. I’m not going to ramble on about it anymore. Chances are, you’ve made your decision about who you’re voting for, and I know when thats happened, little is going to change your mind. That’s sad, but thats my opinion. I’m very passionate about politics, and it’s very hard for me to not think about these things.
I’m done talking about this election and politics in general. I’ve said all I need to say, and it’s just going to make people angry. I’m liable to make people angrier then I already am, and a world full of angry people is not a fun place to live in.
I’m going to go take a shower and slit my wrists.
