I'd like to start this post by urging all those eligible to vote in the United States Mid-Term elections to do so; it always baffles me that so few (as a percentage) do so.
Those that do vote, please, please, please use a bit of rational thinkning when you do so.
You see, I've been watching Washington Journal on C-Span lately, and some of the callers frighten me. And I'm not talking in a pleasant "Boo!" on Halloween type scare either.
One lady thought that "God" would tell George Bush when we should get out of Iraq, and we shouldn't back down before this happens. Yeah, right, like George Bush has a "direct line" to God. He ain't holy, folks.
Then there are those who are basically equating a vote for Democratic candidates as a vote for terrorists. There seems to be the perception that anybody other than a republican will do absolutely nothing to stop terror threats against the United States. To that, I say this: Nobody friggin' likes to get blown up. Whoever is in power, will do their best to prevent this. (Well, after the Bush administration learned it's lesson by ignoring the previous reports before 9/11). Main difference will be in how many personal freedoms of the people they represent they'll be willing to sacrifice to do so.
Anyway, more disjointed ramblings. Enjoy.
Now go vote.
