Political post

ok I warned you so don’t read if you won’t want to hear it.

I have a bunch of little thoughts and comments and they may not all flow.

First for those of you who said you wanted to avoid getting political and speak up I say that’s your right HOWEVER my opinion is you have a voice you should use it. It is our job as citizens in this country to be part of the process this is a duty. This is OUR country and each of us must use our voice.

If you didn’t vote then shame on you. Seriously. Again it is your duty as a citizen to vote. I realize that it takes time to stand in line and to educate yourself on your beliefs but it beats letting other people make your choices for you. Even if your choice didn’t win you did your part and the more people who play an active role in our society the better. The other argument I hear is there is no point in voting because the system doesn’t work. That is like saying there is no point in correcting my child behavior because she continues to misbehave. Might as well just give up and let her do what ever she wants. Silly no? Not to mention one of the biggest reasons our system is flawed is that people don’t participate.

For those of you who lost last night I know how you feel. You win some you lose some and we all move forward. For those of you who are saying its time to stock up on guns and ammo you are freaking me out. Honestly people is that what we have come to? we don’t get our way so we are going to through violent temper tantrums and threaten others? Is that a civilization you would be proud of?

I will NEVER vote for someone who wants to take a group of people and try to make them less human than the rest of us. Gay rights, women’s rights, Latino rights, black rights these are simply rights. They are not interested groups they are people. People deserve respect and scapegoating or denying rights of groups does not help us. It makes us weaker.

lastly I was very interested last night to hear GOP strategists talk about the future of the GOP. One was very clear that unless they can look women in the eye with respect and get over the abortion issue they are in “nowheresville” They other is that Rommny did better than Bush did  with the White male vote, AND that the white male vote is not as important as it used to be. Not that it is unimportant but you cannot win an election with just the white male vote anymore.

ok that’s enough for now,

    Wonderful points. So well taken and I couldn’t agree more. 🙂

  2. Most of the people I know who were voting for Romney were white males in the 35-60+ range and conservative Christian women. The white male is in fear of obscurity in the face of the changing landscape of America. I think they fear what is ahead because part of it means they are no longer going to be at the top of the food chain and shame at how they’ve treated those who will be their superiors. The fight over the “womb” is about a fight over survival of the GOP. When you control the wombs that make little Republicans, Tea baggers and extreme Christians you ensure your legacy will not disappear into obscurity. What you’ve done for centuries has not been in vain and when you die you will not be forgotten, everything you’ve done your whole life meaningless. To be forgetten is worse than death to most of these people. There is a great book that addresses this behavior: How to Be Your Own Best Friend.

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
