one dozen and an informed decision

Charlotte is 12 weeks old today!  Its amazing to me that it has already been 12 weeks, but it has only been 12 weeks.  My life is SOOO different than I thought it would be. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, it doesn’t matter how many books you read, NOTHING can prepare you for having a child!  Its amazing and scary and incredible and daunting and rewarding and exhausting and … uh … stupendous.  She’s such a great kid!

So the election is coming up. And I don’t like either candidate.  I think one is a huge threat in some ways but would offer much needed changes in other ways.  And I think the other one is … well, I don’t know, just not right I guess.  One I personally like, but don’t like his plans while the other one I don’t like as a person but I like his plans.  Of course, what they say now and what they DO later are two different things.  I just don’t feel like I can make a responsible informed decision yet.  Everything I’ve heard or read, I feel, has been riddled with personal opinion and propaganda.  In the last Presidential Election, I felt like the choice was obvious.  But this one isn’t so obvious, and that is what is kinda scary.  I guess I have a lot of research and praying to do before November 4 (and a voter registration address change form to fill out!!!).  Is anyone else having this same dilemma or do you know without a doubt who you are voting for?

  1. I know who I’m voting for, but a lot of that has to do with voting against the other candidate. Up until the VP announcements I was actually thinking about writing in someone because I like neither of the Presidential Nominees. I sort of understand where you’re coming from, but I am intrigued that it is such a hard decision this time. Last time the candidates were practically identical except on their stance on the war in Iraq. This time there are a lot more differences that have already been put forth on economic policy, health care, the war, and the role of government in general. I recommend watching the Debates to see what the candidates say, and also going to each candidates website to read what they say is their stance. When you do go to the candidates websites though, do not forget we will have three parties on the ticket. Bob Barr is the libertarian candidate.

  2. I really don’t care for either of our main candidates this year but you have to choose the lesser of the two evils so to speak. With one it is frightening to think what might happen with him in office. While with the other, even though I don’t really care for him, he’s not as frightening.
