I want to say, that I normally keep my political and religious views to myself, but the stuff that is going on in this presidential race are so very absurd that I can keep my mouth shut no longer.And let me just say here, that I have NOT decided who to vote FOR, I just know for sure some of the ones I WON’T vote for.
1. Mitt Romney–He actually joked that he was unemployed while he was speaking to a group of unemployed people in Florida. What? How crass and out of touch with reality is that? Watch the YouTube Video here.
While I am unemployed at the moment, it is by choice, and I have a job to go to in the spring. To me, a presidential candidate who makes fun of being unemployed is just inappropriate.
2. Newt Gingrich–he said in a speech that ‘by his second term in 2020, we would have space station on the moon.’ This is the very same candidate that is touting cutting spending, and repealing Obamacare. I for one want to know why it is ok to spend money to build a motel on the moon, but we can not spend the money to feed the poor or provide healthcare to the people right here on earth.Oh, and he also said that he would offer former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin a “major role in the next administration if I’m president.”
3.Ron Paul–he also wants to repeal Obamacare. While I don’t know if Obamacare is a good thing or not, it is the only plan they have come up with so far in Washington that even partially addresses the healthcare needs of the uninsured in the country. Mr. Paul also wants to abolish five cabinet departments,one of which is the Department of the Interior. The Department of the Interior oversees the National Parks, which I personally believe would be a tragic thing if we lost them to commercialization. The parks are there for everyone in this country, in the world in fact, and if they were not protected and maintained they would be trashed, mined, pulp-wooded and sold to the highest bidder. Imagine a United States without a Grand Canyon National Park. I can’t. So, unless he can say exactly what he would do to protect our national treasures, I’d never vote for him just because of that.
I still don’t know who I will give my vote, but I know for sure it won’t be these guys. Hate me if you must. This is all my opinion and we all have one.
