Politics/Election 2008

With just a few weeks to go, I am very disappointed in both candidates. I am an independent, plain and simple. I don’t want to vote for either presidential ticket. And that goes for either party. Both have good points and both have bad points. I trust neither.

I am very skeptical about government at all levels. Starting at the city level, school boards, counties, states, and the nation. I don’t believe most people elected to office really care about their fellow citizens. Some probably do, but I think most are greedy, selfish, and only care about themselves and their interests. Power and riches corrupt. Nothing ever changes.

There is one important thing I have to say. I love the United States of America. I believe in the principles this country was founded on. I believe in life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I believe in freedom and self determination. I believe that all people from one side of this planet to the other are endowed with these fundamental rights given to us by Almighty God. These rights can never be taken away by any government or person.

I know what I want for my country and the world. Unfortunately, neither political party, Democrat or Republican, represent my interests.

I find great wisdom in the words of Treebeard:

PIPPIN
And whose side are you on?

TREEBEARD
Side? I am on nobody’s side because
nobody’s on my side, little Orc. Nobody
cares for the woods anymore.

I deeply grieve over the state of our nation. May Jesus help us.
