I just finished watching the interview with McCain in the View. Another day of calm in the political scene.
He was not vicious and defensive. He was respectful and was a pro at handling the questions. The questions were straight forward and just asking for the truth, the facts, his real opinions, etc.
By contrast, I have been reading responses to the Palin interview about how hard the questions were.
Have we lost our mind?
Are our expectations that low?
Must we walk on egg shells and not mention the elephant in the room?
As a voter, as an American.... I don't care who is running for our highest office, but I do care to know them. The questions HAVE to be HARD, because when they affect you and me, it affects us HARD!
I mentioned before that neighbors of mine are loosing or have lost their homes, do you think for a moment that when we all rushed out to offer solutions and do research for them we gave a hoot what political party they belonged to?
Let's get real, when we help one another is because we are compelled to perform acts of HUMANITY and political parties do not enter the equation, EVER!
I want someone who is going to fix this mess and Obama says he will reverse this trend and get back to basics, he promises change and we need all the change he can bring about because the way things are, they are just not working for any of us. McCain says he is going to reform Washington, maybe that means the same thing.
The only thing I do know for sure is that whoever gets in has the biggest mess to clean up than any other previous administrations. Even Clinton did not have this big of a mess to clean up.
Recently I have been hearing that Republican are war mongers. Perhaps the fact that during most republican administrations our country has been at war propells this type of talk, but I submit to you that your republican neighbor, friend or family member does not share those ideas because there is nothing in it for them. They do not profit from it, on the contrary, just like your Democrat neighbor, friend or family, they contribute what they love the most: Their Children.
Whoever is pulling the strings are not belonging to any party you belong to, they are part of a very exclusive and corrupt club who are very good at dividing citizens and distracting them from looking too closely at who is pulling the strings, what they are able to get away with, and how much of our resources they walk away with.
I hope we all start paying attention to the "man behind the curtain" and separate the distractions from the real issues.
