Election 2008

Okay, its an election year. We will get a new president. This will be good. Who will it be? Emotions are tense. Everyone has an opinion. I'm feeling pressured to take a stand. Personally I'm not that concerned about it. My life is good. I have a house, kids, husband, a steady income from that husband. I do feel like the current administration let us down. I'm rather un-republican more than I'm pro-democrat. I don't think the republicans did a good job controlling GWB and for that reason I think they need to be booted. But if McCain beats out Obama, well, I don't think I'll loose any sleep over it. It's a very wishy washy attitude and I probably should care more, but I don't. I find the whole process of campaigning to be tedious and a waste of money. If a candidate announced that they were going to forgo the TV spots and spend the money on the homeless or at food banks, then I might take more of an interest.

I'm just a smug American. Safe in my freedoms and comforts brought to me by those who spend the time following the issues and those in office. Safe in my freedom to write what I feel without free of prosecution. Me, Smug and American.
