Ahhhhhhhh.....I'm so upset.
I won't talk specific politics online - this is a place about food and diet, not my personal opinions on something has passionate and sensitive as American politics right now. Let me just say that I just found out today that the man I was going to vote for, my dark horse, my modern day Jeff Smith as Jimmy Stewart portrayed in "Mr. Smith Goes To Washington," has finally dropped out and thrown his support for someone I don't really support; for, in my mind a modern day "Taylor Machine." I wonder how much money they bribed him with? I wonder if he just got tired of trying? I wonder if they threatened his life? Or maybe just a cushy position once said candidate wins. (supposedly) So, I'm eating comfort food (Terra Blue Potato Chips - matches my mood) and watching a live feed online. So much great talk. My dark horse talked a moving piece but is no longer running. What a shame.....not like the powers that be would ever let him get elected anyway but having someone to vote for that you actually BELIEVE will do a good job is important.
So, regardless of your politcal preference this year, please, vote with your heart. Don't vote for someone you don't believe in. Vote for someone you have faith in. If you have faith in the two major political parties....good for you, go ahead - do what your heart tells you to do. If you don't - don't be swayed by "Oh, I have to or else it won't count." If enough people voted the way they felt instead of out of fear, things might be a lot different.
I'm done ranting. I hope you all don't send me hate mail. I tried to make this as non partisan as possible (although I'm sure most of you can tell ;-)
