Here in Southern California our Labor day is blessed with sunshine, and lil white puffy clouds. To those that would be quick to complain about that (IE pessimists, and democrats) sorry, maybe you should trek on down to the gulf coast---and enjoy Gustav.
This seasoned veteran, having now observed no less than an even dozen Presidential campaigns, am totally charged up for this one in 2008. Holy smokes people, we got ourselves a race involving a blackman and a woman---the whole world is watching. How Racist is modern America-------how Sexist is the USA?? Then we got the whole shebang of liberal, versus conservative thinking on any number of major issues, such as Energy, Education, Economy.
However the nature of these political drives over the years has evolved into a circus of 30 second soundbites. We will get no detailed explainations of what the Candidates plans for the country really are. The Donks are against offshore drilling for example, their reasons for that being it will take 20 years before any significant oil can be brought to the refineries, and we need it now---I have no idea what they suggest we do that will give us relief from the independence on foreign oil we would liek to have.
The Donks loudly cry about all the things wrong with the country, you heard a long list of these complaints harped to death at their convention---and its healthy to have that kind of outlet for ones frustrations. Unfortunately after a brief time it becomes kinda depressing to hear somebody be so negative about their country. I noticed too that there was alot of positive buzz in the Donks convention, with chants of HILL-A-RIE! HILL-A-RIE!!, and for Obama ----notice howver the republican gatherings they were more prone to chant "USA!! USA!! USA!!", WHICH I find to be more positive.
The Liberals (aka progressives or Democrats) will make a big issue out of Gov. Sara Palin's lack of foreign Experience. I find that kinda amusing---considering the Donk's candidate doesn't have much experience in that arena either---oh wait he did go to Europe acouple weeks ago didn't he---I remember now, he was to busy doing photo opts with the leaders of France and Germany---he didn't have time to visit our wounded in the hospital there---(YA LOST MY VOTE RIGHT THERE KID).
I read and hear a lot of comments from the liberal Donks who blame everything negative on George Bush, call him cute lil names, but thats okay, its an election year---its just so appalling to see so much ignorance of the facts of how our government actually works. Its the Congress people, its the national legislature (the Senate and the House of Representatives) that enact all the laws, make the budgets---ask Senator Biden, he has been in the Legislature longer than any one individual has in the entire History of our Country-----now he's nominated by Obama to be his Vice President---the candidate of "Change"?? Seems to me on the other Party , with the nomination of a women to be Vice President----nows THERE is some real refreshing "change" being offerred to the voting public. A real modern woman who is the mother of 5 children, who has worked her way up through the ranks and now nominated as Vice President of the Entire Country---she sure aint no clone of "Hillary" Gov. Palin not only talks the talk, she walks the walk----. I surely believe that "Reaganism" is alive and well in the Repulican Party and its time this country started being Proud---I'm Tired of the liberals putting our country down----.
