I Don't Know Who To Vote For

This year's elections have me a little lost, a whole lot confused, and completely frustrated. When I say I don't know who to vote for, it is a little like saying I don't know what color to paint the kitchen. Whatever I choose, I will have live with the consequences for years.

The current guy is not who I want there now. That I am certain about. I am not a fan of forced universal health care and abusing executive orders. I am not a fan of someone who wants to take away our means of protection and make us dependent on the very group who have proven over and over again that they only take care of themselves. He promised us change and he did not disappoint, but somehow what he has done was not what I had in mind or understood that he had in mind. But then, he didn't let us know much of his plans when he was running four years ago. Now we know his true colors.

The guy running against him doesn't do much for me either. He already has forced universal health care in his state, but claims he will not enforce that on a national level. I am doubtful of that. Many claim that if he is in power, we will see the middle class disappear. I think they already are. Although I thought I would never say this, he is not nearly conservative enough for me. However, I do like his values. I like that he seems to be a pretty upstanding devoted family man. I do not like that he is very rich and might not have a handle on how most of us live or try to scrape by to live.

I would think by reading what I just wrote that my mind is already made up. Truthfully, it is leaning that way. Here is my major, foremost concern: no matter who we vote in, will we just be getting four more years of the same? Have we progressed to the point in this country where we cannot undo the damage already done? Have we forgotten what our forefathers accomplished and the documents they set forth for us to govern our country? Have we been too complacent in the last 60-70 years and let our government run without input from the people?

At the point, I would say yes. I think there is hope though and that hope can be accomplished through our actions at the voting booth and a more active involvement in our government. Last week, I wasn't sure what the point to voting was for this year because we have change coming that will change all of our lives whether we want to believe it or not. But I think we have a chance for change to go our way if we do the right things and become people who want a government who works for us and not the other way around.

Please give much thought and become informed about who to vote for this coming election. If you do not like what is going on now, then understand that you can help change that if you so wish.

Thanks for reading! Have a great day!

  1. I have been listening to Mitt Romney's book No Apology on CD. Just to clear up a total misconception, he did not force universal health care on his state. The legislature wanted to make sure everyone was covered, so they set out to find a way to do it. There was lots of compromise on both sides as they studied the needs of the citizens and the ways to finance the whole thing. I was fascinated by the process. As governor, Romney did the right thing, and you can trust that he has no desire to do the same on a national level. He wants each state to study their needs, then make their own decisions to meet those needs. He believes that a federal take over of health care would be disastrous. Read what he says on his website mittromney.com; another good site is http://mitttheman.com/ written by someone who has known him for about 40 years; another good site is http://evangelicalsformitt.org/ where people who don't agree with his religion support him because of his moral values and economic expertise. Listening to his speeches I find that he is honest and forthright about what is wrong and how to fix it. He is not out of touch with the "common folk" just because he is wealthy. He has lived his life close to the rest of us. I would rather have a president who understands what it takes to realize the "American Dream" than one who wants to deprive us of that dream and take us into socialist slavery. Mitt Romney is not "just like" Obama. They are polar opposites. They have opposite visions for the future of America. I'm glad you are giving thought to this election. I hope everyone does. The future of our country is at stake.

  2. Please be aware these are NOT the only options available this election. There are several other candidates, who unfortunately are being ignored by the media. Virgil Goode is an excellent candidate, Ron Paul is still on the ballot, and there are others.

10 Preparedness Items You Should Be Buying Every Month

As crazy as it seems, some people make prepping harder than it has to be. Learning skills can be hard, but the end rewards are so worth it. The work can be hard, but the pay off is that jobs get done and you have accomplished something for the future. However...preppers still need stuff. We can produce a lot of our own things and survive just fine. We still need the items that will make survival easier now and, heaven forbid, if anything bad happens. We need things to keep our lifestyle simpler and easier if something happens. Over the eight years or so that I have been prepping, I have some things that I buy almost every month. Some months when the budget is tight, I might not purchase any of these. Then I appreciate having these things on hand! Below is my list of things I buy every month. I don't make one big trip and buy all these things in one trip. I add them to my cart at the grocery store, department store, online shopping, and whatnot. I spend a little bit every s

New preppers wonder what they should be buying for their preps every month. More experienced preppers wonder what holes they should be plugging in their food storage to be better prepared.
