Anxiously awaiting the results

October 27, 2012

Like a trip to the doctors, this election has everyone on pins and needles.  The blood has been drawn and the doctor informs us they will call as soon as the test come back from the lab possibly a week to ten days.

As we anxiously wait for the results we wonder if everything will be alright. We worry that something is wrong, a constant fear as we are not doctors but we know deep down inside there is terrible news to come.

That is November 6th, the day of reckoning, as we get the call on who will lead this, the greatest nation in the world for the next four years.   Will we have more of the same or will we have a new look toward the future? Right now no one can say specifically till the test results come in.

According to the current President he needs more time to implement his plan, those promises that he hasn’t lived up too.  He needs us to believe in the “Hope and Change” he promised while campaigning for his first term.  Immigration reform in the first year,  50% reduction in the deficit because it was “unpatriotic” to increase our national debt by 4 trillion dollars as George Bush did as or 43rd President.

On the other hand, Mitt Romney has traveled the country to inform the voters, “we don’t have to settle for years of disappointment and decline.”   The former Governor has been traveling across the nation with his VP pick Paul Ryan insisting the President hasn’t been paying attention to the will of the people.

Soon the doctor will call us with the results.  For some the findings will cause elation as nothing appears to be wrong.  For others there will be devastation as the paperwork causes the heart to drop to the floor knowing their time is limited.  No exercise routine can help them, no change in diet will relieve them, no words will be able to console them.

November 6th will be the day we remember as the day that changed our lives forever. So remember to have your voices heard and vote. Regardless of your party, political affiliation or ideology, vote as it is your God-given right and your patriotic duty in this, the greatest nation on Earth.

Where do we go now?

October 25, 2012

So much has happened in the past four years here in America and around the world. Where do we go now? With elections just two weeks away American’s have a huge choice to make when decided the path our nation will travel down the next four years.  Many individuals we talked to have given up hope and don’t want to vote in this election cycle.

Why do these individuals not want to vote. Some of them claim they voted for Obama and are disgusted in the way he has handled the economic crisis along with the foreign policies which make us look weak.

Others say they don’t like the Republican challenger because he has made so much money in the private sector he may not work for the middle class as he has stated on the campaign trail. They fear he will be for big business and Wall Street types neglecting the individuals who are really struggling in this economy.

Regardless of your position, party affiliation or thoughts and ideas of where this country needs to be there is one thing that is sure, if you don’t vote, your voice will not be heard and will be silenced.  Remember Florida was won by Bush by just under 600 votes and many have express concern because they failed to vote in the Sunshine state.

Have your voices heard and get out and vote. Find the candidates who best represent you and your views in the local elections, in the State elections and in the Federal elections.  There is too much at stake not to vote…
