I try to be quiet on my blog about Religion and Politics because I have never felt that this is the place to voice my opinion. I do mention God often but I don't preach about Him. What I have been finding today is that many of my close friends here have voiced their feelings over the election that took place yesterday and I admire their boldness to speak from their heart.
Truth be told....I am broken. Broken in a way I have only felt once before in my life and that is when my husband left me. Broken is hard to overcome. I come from a family who voted for Republicans when I was growing up. That's not to say I only vote that way.
First and foremost I know very little about politics and religion. I love God, he is my Heavenly father and He loves me unconditionally. Can I quote the Bible, no! When it comes to politics you could probably show me a picture of a donkey and an elephant but I couldn't tell you who is who! If I was in a room of people and the question to the audience was "Have you ever voted for a president because of their looks?" I could raise my hand to that one.
If you come here often you know I am pretty open and honest. Not very much you don't know about me. Have I voted for a Democrat in the past? Yes I have and I actually voted for Obama in 2008. My husband convinced me that he was the best choice.
If you know me well you know that the color of a persons skin does not mean a thing to me. My parents raised me to love all people equally. Now that's not to say I don't get angry when English is not the spoken language in our country. My ancestors come over from Europe and only spoke Bohemian. They had to learn to write and to speak English so why has that changed? No one printed up papers in Bohemian for them to read in order to become American citizens! See, I do have voice.
I embraced Obama being President and was ready for change. Yes I know he was handed a plate filled of crap when he took office but that plate never got empty, it only got heavier. So this election for was about change and giving someone else a try. I didn't want to give him 4 more years.
Just look at the areas that Romney won. You can't tell me that people were not ready for a change. Like I said I know nothing about politics, it all goes over my head most of the time but why, when so many in California voted for Romney do all of our electoral votes only go in one direction. What was the point of my vote in this state?
I love the USA, I want it back!
I may not be as educated as some are when it comes to politics but I am entitled to my view. I know that we all have our opinions, this is just mine. I also respect your opinion and am not saying anything to start an argument, I just want future generations in my family to know who I am.
P.S. I am aware that Obama won the popular vote and that makes my stomach hurt!
