Iowa Caucus Day

  Oh My I Can't wait for this to be over.  I am so glad I don't have TV. 

    Yesterday we went out and had pizza.  Every few minutes another commercial with a political ad.  Every 10 minutes the phone rings with another recorded message.  Its enough to put you off ever voting, LOL.  But I will.

     I will not be voting for someone just because they are the same sex as me.  I will be weighing my important vote on more then that, but for some that is all it takes.  I won't be voting for or against the color of a persons skin.  But for some that is all it will take. 

    I will be voting for someone who has not changed their minds every time the wind of public opinion changes.  I want someone firm on the issues and of course of like mind as me.  I do not vote a straight party line.  How would that be possible?  But I do vote.  And I want all of you to vote.  However you vote because it is your right and you have the freedom to do it.  Enough said.

I've gotten calls too, and I live in California.  I've gotten two calls for Obama stating "we are calling to ensure your vote with Mr. Obama.."  I tell them, I am not going to promise ANYONE I'm voting for anyone, and I'm not going to TELL anyone who I'm voting for...  You are right--makes someone NOT want to go and vote!  Julie

I never vote on a party line.  LOL...I got tired of hearing about the Iowa caucus in Pa.  It will be interesting to see who has survived come this summer.  Chris
