When I first met Barack Obama on Oprah, before he was a candidate. I LOVED HIM! I thought he was so different and refreshing. So when he announced he was running I was all gung-ho. When he won I really felt my American pride soar! I joined all his websites and even donated money with my broke ass. At first the emails I would get from Barack were inspiring and informative. One made my day so much that I blogged about it here. They came about twice a week teaching me about the ins and outs of our government but then slowly but surely they turned into "Will you donate today?" Over and over asking for money and more money which I HATE. So truthfully where I used to get all motivated and excited about receiving the emails now the majority of them get deleted. Especially if they ask for money. Uggh I hate that!
If there is no "Donate Now" request I will read the contents. I am now rearing up to vote next week however I am so ill informed that it is almost wrong to vote. I usually just go democrat all the way because I disagree with the republicans so much., I also feel that for the most part the republicans are hateful, and judgemental and they never take responsibility for shit. Hello Republicans Your guys fucked us up so bad that the world is forever changed for the worse. Duh! But somehow this is Obamas fault? Serves as a prime example of why I feel the republicans don't take responsibility. Anyways, I listen to Rush Limbarf, and Hannity and republican radio just to keep myself fired up and because I also feel that it is important to keep informed of what your enemies are up to. Each time I listen to them it reconfirms why I dislike that party so much. The tea
I couldn't even tell you who was running. *head hung low in shame*
In this case I usually enter the polling place, vote straight democrat and call it a day. But for some reason I feel this time that is not the responsible thing to do. I know nothing about these guys. Yes, I know there are ways to learn about them but I really do not have the time or truthfully the desire to get to know all their platforms. I mean can we really believe any of them anyways?
So I am left with the dilemma do I vote ill informed or not at all? I mean I know that I do not agree with the republicans but I'm not informed enough to know if I agree with my own party this time? So what is worse.... voting ill informed or not at all?
