so I figured I would post. I have a million things to do, but it has been way too long.
I’m sitting watching Bush speak at the Republican National Convention. It makes me angry. But not for the “typical” (at least I consider them typical) reasons one may think. To put it bluntly – I’m tired of all the crap.
Bush or Kerry? It doesn’t matter to me. And it shouldn’t matter to most of us. We all seem to expect one person to change everything. We’re all looking fot the next JFK. Everyone liked JFK when he was alive, everyone LOVES him after he died. He didn’t really have the chance to make his mark. What if he had lived? I’m sure he would have been OK, but I doubt the results we would have seen would be amazing. It’s only guy, folks.
What I don’t get is this: People in the U.S. are thinking about retirement in their mid-fifties, early 60’s. They are ending their careers, not likely beginning. So, why the heck do we have presidents who are over 50? More likely over 60? John Kerry – 61. George Bush – 58. What is this? Presidents should be 40! An age where you still have your wits about you and you’re still in good physical health, yet old enough to have experience and command respect.
Why don’t I care? Because I feel we’ve come to a time where we can’t trust or count on anyone. Or at least it seems that way. People don’t trust big corporations or politians. Most view public sector employees as lazy. Really, do you think one person is going to fix all of this? Think again.
Four years from now will most likely be the same regardless of who’s elected. I don’t really care for Bush or Kerry. Who am I voting for then? Well, I voted for Gore 4 years ago, as I thought Bush was an idiot. Since I still do, I will vote for Kerry, but not because I feel he’s any better. I just think I’d rather roll the dice this time around then stick with what I already know about Dubya.
I have lots of other things I’d like to rant about, but I’ll save those for another day….
