I’m a registered Independant. I love America. I love Americans.
I watched the debates. I read the reviews. I read commentaries about the debates. I’m disgusted.
Romney looked/sounded like a snake oil salesman, Obama looked bored, Ryan looked 12 and Biden was a thug.
I engaged in a debate about the VP-Debate with my good friend Artemis Quickness*. Within this discussion we both batted around our ideas of what a VP should be, how a debate should be run, how factual do you have to be? How much wiggle room do you have with facts?
While we each had different views and perspective on what was the most important factor about the debate, I struck upon a thought.
“When are we going to get a politician in any capacity who sees the constituents of America as nothing but Americans?”
I know. I know. Silly, naive me with my simplistic views and humble theories. Hear me out.
As a white guy of average height, in good shape I make up the blur that is American society. We are the faceless populace.
For years we’ve been lambasted with ‘special interest’ groups and ‘minority’ groups. Mr. President, what are you going to do for latinos, blacks, gays, aborters, gun-toters, Cuban cigar-smokers, foreign car-buyers, ranchers, blah, blah, blah…This attitude has muddied the waters of politics since the beginning of politics.
I’m more special than you because: —-
No. No, you aren’t. You are an American. You are an American, enjoying your freedoms. You are not a black person, pro-lifer, gun-banner, ‘red smoker. You are an American who happens to have those characteristics. It is selfish of you to think that your ethnicity, abortion/gun stance etc…makes your opinion any more valid than anyone elses’.
Mr. President, please do what’s best for the Nation, based on the criteria we’ve given you as the people.
Why can’t we have that attitude? What’s more – why haven’t we given more power to the states?
Why is the Federal government still sullying its hands on silly topics like abortion, gay rights, the legalization of marijuana? Let the states handle it and fix our foreign policy and the economy.
Imagine: You live in Texas and you want to smoke weed. It’s illegal for whatever reason in Texas, but it’s legal in Oklahoma. As an American you have the ability to move to Oklahoma. You’re welcome. If smoking weed is that important to you…put your money in a suitcase and put your suitcase where you can legally smoke weed.
If you, presently, enjoy forcing your morality on other when it comes to abortion and you live in Virginia, where they take a pro-choice stance, but they have a pro-life stance in Alaska and you are that gung-ho about it – pack a parka and head into the wild north.
We currently live in a country that doesn’t expect anything from it’s people. There are people who just don’t pay taxes. There are people who’ve been on welfare for decades.
If we gave the power back to the states and all these people who think their personal preferences should be of the utmost importance to the government to the point of obnoxious could take some action and do it quietly.
Homosexuality. You don’t hear chronic masturbators crying for rights…nope. All you hear is Fap, Fap, Fap. Who you choose to live with/copulate with is your business. The government shouldn’t care. The population at large shouldn’t care. Another great illustration if the states had more power and all the gay-haters didn’t want to live in a pro-gay state…they could all move to Arkansas.
I’m annoyed and tired of hearing candidates talking to latinos, blacks, whites, asians…Talk to us as Americans. If your needs aren’t being met in a cultural way – go back to your own country and culture it up.
Please, for once, can we have a candidate who’ll talk to us like adults? For all of you Obama fans. I said TALK to us, not READ to us. I feel like he should just make his speeches available to us instead of wasting his time reading them to us.
Romney…I’m prettty sure you’re a robot. A space robot. You are probably one of the most socially removed people I’ve ever heard talk in a public forum.
Give it a thought people. Let’s be Americans and get this country back on track.
