Are we distracted by the personalities of politics? We have all formed our personal opinions about Sarah Palin and we either agree or disagree. I am afraid of her. I worry about my personal freedoms if she should become President.
But what I am really worried about now is we are avoiding some very important issues. We are not looking at the war. Isn't it still really very important? Mothers and Fathers are separated way too long from their families, people are dying and it is costing a fortune. We are making more and more new enemies every day. Bush created this giant mess and we know it was a big mistake. Why is this not talked about everyday? Does anyone care that we are still at war?
Also it seems that patriotism is a big issue. Should it be? Is the more patriotic you appear to be make you a better thinking candidate? Rational thinking and understanding world politics, in my opinion is more important than wearing lapel pins and flag waving.
We need a President who is incredibly intelligent, not a bully, and a smart business person as well. And, the president better understand health insurance issues and social security too.
I don't see how anybody running for president could smile at the same time. What a difficult job. Back to the issues please.
More about pottery and art tomorrow. Could not help it. It's on my mind.
