I sit here on my high horse, considering what to say without making too many people mad or upset. Chasing them away with my post. There are a few things in this life that people hands down do not want to discuss or once they began discussing it, they can’t stop. One of those is politics. Therefore, I have only given myself five minutes to write. With that, I may end up not finishing my thoughts.
So, last night I had a discussion with my dearest Geek Adonis, and he told me about a statement that Rick Santorum said dealing with his voting record. He defended his voting record, saying that nowadays he would have to vote no on every single bill to avoid there being any bad in it. Then dad gum it, for goodness sakes vote no! All these bill makers and lobbyists purposefully add that pork fat that is bad, because they know that politicians are more worried about their reputation than they are their character. I am so sick of them all making excuses about why they voted this and why they voted that. If you truly don’t like it, vote no. If enough do it, they will have to rewrite and rewrite until you can finally vote yes. We the people hire you for our best interests, not for your ho hum votes on well this one isn’t too bad.
I am sick of voters putting politicians in office because they are picking the best out of the worst. They don’t want to waste their vote on someone that may not make it.
That is the problem with our politicians and our voters, we are so worried about our reputation and not about what is right.
Five minutes are up! I will now just rant in my head.
