This is my blog and I'll say what I want to say.
Disagree? DO NOT READ THIS POST.
This is not a topic I mention here often. I generally avoid political discussions, period.
I value my friendships and don't like "heated discussions" or disagreements with my friends. I also value my upbringing, morals, values, ethics, and country. I believe in the power of the people and limited government.
I agree with Rudy that CHANGE IS NOT A DESTINATION and that HOPE IS NOT A STRATEGY. I applaud John McCain on his choice of Sarah Palin as running mate... no, that's not true- I'm THRILLED.
Palin is a fantastic choice and I can't wait for her to become our Vice President. She has significantly more experience than Obama and is most definitely qualified for this job. If and when McCain's health deteriorates and Palin must assume his duties, she is ready and will be fabulous. She understands more than any politician I've seen (ever?!) what it is like to live in middle-class, small-town America. She is a mom, a governor, and has proven herself in politics. She has made positive changes in her state and she will continue with reform as Vice President. As she put it, her job is similar to that of a "community organizer", except she "has responsibilities".
Bloggers have been talking about Sarah Palin for VP since February of 2007. That's a full year and a half, folks. The media caught on and have mentioned her as a VP possibility, too- this isn't just someone that McCain chose at random.
And really? Even a democrat is endorsing this duo! If you haven't seen this yet, it is a great clip- take another moment and watch this, too.
Once again, This is my blog and I'll say what I want to say. Disagree? Don't read it. I don't read liberal smut that I see posted on other blogs. It frustrates me to no end that such nice people have opinions that I so strongly disagree with... so I pretend that those posts don't exist and -voila!- I'm over it. Hope you will be too.
