I Endorse....!

My kids usually bear the brunt of my long soliloquies.  Especially when they are sick, as she is now, or when they broach a subject in the first place, not actually in search of a long dialog.  They prefer the shoe be on the other foot, and fire questions at me unceasingly.

Addie says they are voting in her class for President, and she only has two choices.  Which of course is a racket in any sense of the term.  Its typically called a monopoly in business circles, or near monopoly, and Governments usually force a change in the situation.

I told her simply.  Write in the name Gary Johnson or Mickey Mouse.  I mean gheeze,  there ought to be a write in.  I can know longer wonder why we only have two main parties, its inoculated in people from an early age.    I wish they inoculate the "Do not litter" campaign again, not a two party system.

But I digress, as I did with her.

In her situation, I said,  Obama hasn't earn your vote.  He hasn't earned mine.    

I expect more, and that's just not a campaign slogan from Romney.  Its been what I think, that a President should live up to and behave in the highest of manners and standards. 

He's the ruler of the world, so to speak.  History.  This isn't the PTO presidency.

I'm not voting for Obama.  I expect better.  

But you all go ahead and vote the next president out of the two main parties,  I'm note particularly afraid of either one.  Romney or Obama.  I'd prefer Romney.  But I have no way of knowing if he'd turn out any better.  Because of that, my vote is for change.  

I don't think any one person now a days can do the job well enough for widespread acclaim.  Or in other words,  the job is too big, and the situation too screwed for any one person to be well accomplished.

Obama is the devil I know.  Literary speaking.  I mean no slander beyond the old adage.  I've read enough, by credible sources, that I don't believe Obama is driven by any damn America agenda.  He's a liberal.  That's bad enough, and destructive enough.

He's well-intentioned, but obviously in over his head.  

Romney isn't exactly the new embodiment of the most, well,  of , well, of whom ever is the worst conservative the liberals are afraid of.

Which is to say,  he and Obama aren't that much different.  But I prefer him.

But you all go elect him.  If he does well,  I got his back next time.  

That's all I can promise.

One lasting thought,  Romney thanked the crowd in front of him remarking that they all support him, even though he isn't promising a big check to any of them.

I like that kind of promise from a politician.  It seems more honest.  Its not a promise at all.
