My Brain Was Busy Today

and it's all the stupid election's fault. On my way to work today I heard a question on the radio that occupied my thoughts all day.

Should patriotism be a requirement for the President of the United States? The answer is, without question or pause, yes.

If you owned a company, from which you make your entire living, and were looking to hire a new CEO, would you hire someone who wants your company to succeed as it stands?

Would you want that CEO to have a deep seeded belief that your company is the best in its industry and wants to see it stay there?

**OR**

Would you want some one at the helm of your company, from which you make your living and provide for your family, who thinks that your company is intrinsically evil and must be brought down?

Would you want someone who believes that the only way to save your company is to completely stop all of its production, take all the money it has and give it to the employees and lock the doors?

This is what we must ask ourselves when we go to vote in November. While none of the three we have to choose from at the moment are 100% in alignment with my beliefs and philosophy, I do feel confident that at least one of them loves this country and wants it to continue to be the freedom loving, force for good in the world that we have been in the past. (hint: I speak not of a Dem. )

I fear for my country. I fear for my freedom and I fear for the future of my children. When we cannot question the beliefs of a man running for the President of the United States.

I fear for all these things when our words are chosen for us so that we avoid offending some one who might find them objectionable.

I fear for all these things when I look at the indoctrination of our children into these beliefs in our schools.

Finally, I fear for my ability to provide for my family when the government has to tax us at a rate like those in Europe, in the 50% range, just so that they can provide for us from the cradle to the grave.

I do not want my government that deep into my life. Where is my incentive to ever achieve anything for myself if I know that I can do nothing and get the same results.

Just remember…

The government that is big enough to give you everything you want, is powerful enough to take everything you have. – Thomas Jefferson

So which of the 3 Democrats currently running are you voting for? (Yes, McCain is a Democrat. He may be running as a Republican, but if you look at his voting records, he's a Dem.)

I am really on the fence about who I am gonna vote for since my candidates all fell to the way side.

I may vote for Nader, just because I can't vote for anyone else. ha ha. Either that or I'll write in Ronald Reagan.

In all seriousness, I will have to vote for Juan McPain because he's the only one I can trust to hold fast on the war and not to try to take away all my $$ to pay for Jim Bob's health care.
