Awhile back ago, I was watching a video from Penn Jillette. He was talking about the tea party and how they're "fighting" for America. When asked about joining them, he said that he doesn't fight for anything, but will work toward something. I tend to agree with him. Alot of people are framing this election as a "Battle for America's Soul" and whatnot and I'm....just not buying into that. Sure, I think the country is heading in the wrong direction and I won't be voting for Obama in November, but I can't bring myself to believe that we really are spiraling headlong into Armageddon. I will gladly work toward building a better America anyway I can, but I'm not going to "fight" for anything seeing as how I don't believe in anything strongly enough to do so

Does any of this make sense? Am I onto something, or just a spineless pussy? Would love to hear what everybody hear thinks

Move to Cuba, no. I would however love to visit there. Whatever I may feel about the government I've heard nothing but good things about the people, the food, and the scenery

Then maybe you should pay attention to what people are trying to tell you.

I am. And if I really believe, I mean REALLY and TRULy believed we were one election away from Socialism/Communism/*insert any other ism here* then I'd be ready to take up arms and fight. But, I just don't see that. I see alot of hyperbole from both sides about the latest "Most important election EVAR!", but I will not allow myself to get angry at politics when I feel there's no need. I'm certainly not denying that Obama is bad for the country, but I can't bring myself to really and truly hate the man.

That's just my two cents. If you can got something else to say to that, by all means. But if you want me to listen, do it in a respectful manner. It's the same I would do for anybody else

The folly in your statement is the same as that of the frog. How much hotter must it be before you take notice of what we have lost? How many more liberties stripped away before you say enough?

In case you haven't noticed, government cannot help. Everything government sticks its nose into, for the sake of "helping", backfires, costs more and demands more "answers".

Our federal level government is broken and corrupt to the core. There are no more states men, merely lifers who wish to line their own pockets and interests. There is no more serving the country. It's now, "what do I get?"

I work every election and I fight to get the candidates I am working for elected.

It's really very simple. Democrats/Liberals/Communists/Socialists should not be holding public office. I will do what I can to make that happen.
