Americans Get the FACTS

Okay, not to offend anyone by this next post but come on Americans, WAKE UP!!!!

This has been weighing heavily on my heart over the past few weeks as I watch the news, debates and stupid, stupid campaign commercials. I cannot wait for those to be over!!! But what really has been bothering me is how easily influenced we as Americans are! Instead of using our own minds and brains to figure out the facts we will listen to the TV anchors and reporters, most of them liberals, with exception to Fox news who in my opinion is the most fair, they actually show BOTH sides. Why can't we just accept facts as facts and lies as lies.

When the campaign began I honestly was going to vote for Mickey Mouse come November 4th. I was actually riding the fence and I am a DEVOUT Republican. I was so tired of what the Republicans and Democrats have been doing in Washington. Honestly, we as Americans do not have a voice anymore. Are we really living in a Representative Democracy of Government? I would say absolutely not!!!! For example, when the issue of the $700 billion dollar bail out came up, why did we not vote on it as Americans! It is our money they are using to bail out Wall Street and yet we have to rely on these corrupt men and women we have elected that are now paid off to vote whatever way is more suitable for these politicians pockets!

Anyways, I turned my vote towards McCain and Palin when I learned that the Republican party did not want McCain to run! If that is the case then my vote was definitely leaning towards McCain. We need someone in the White House who isn't afraid to stand up for US!!! Another thing, all the FACTS, that point Obama to the radicals such as Bill Ayers and Acorn group and Rev. Wright, are just being pushed aside! WHY????? WAKE UP! This is soooo important! They are shaking it off now, but what happens if Obama gets elected and these are the people who he associates himself with? My grandfather has a saying which I understood the more I grew up, "Let me look at your friends and who they are, and I will tell you who you are!" It's soo true. When you surround yourself with radicals and terrorist what are you eventually going to think or do or believe??? Bottom line, I vote mainly on moral issues since our society is so very low on those anyway, 1.) Am I a baby killer? NO! (republican vote) 2.) Do I believe that God created man to be with a woman and not another man or vice versa YES! (republican vote) 3.) If I ever open a business do I want the government to tell me that I HAVE to provide medical coverage for my employees? NO! (that should be my CHOICE, as an American, not forced by the government) (republican vote)
Bottom line, John McCain and Sarah Palin are the right choice for the white house. LOOK AT THE FACTS! We are Americans, lets use all the resources we have to find out the facts to better decide who we are putting in office!

Oh sister, sister. Leave it to you to cause a riot. I think people on both sides of the fence feel the same way. I don't think either candidate is qualified (or honest) enough to boast about. Each offer good plans, the question comes down to which plans are more important and who's most likely to follow through. For me the moral issues are a biggie but the state of the economy is top priority-mainly because I don't trust them to keep their word on the moral issues. Just like Bush didn't...

I still love you though :)

You've brought up a lot of very good points. The whole economic issue is ridiculous. Moral issues are more important, though! We want the more moral folks in office to make good decisions for us and our economy!!! Check out my brother-in-law's blog:

He really keeps up on the TRUTH about politics! What we hear on the news is biased!
