Why can't we just get along?
After reading some of the media snipes on Sarah Palin AGAIN, I have come to the conclusion ..NO. I try, really try to see things from different points of view, but I just must say it...I am just sick and tired of the assumptions that certain candidates are "stupid" or "too smart" or "not cool"or "tea baggers" and for that reason we should either not vote for them .... or throw them out of office.
Since when has the American electorate voted based on intellect? I mean really, you would think this is some kind of high school quiz bowl. Like if someone really debated well, we would just hand them the presidency. Are you kidding? Did any of you really hang out with someone on the debate team?
I am older now, not in high school and not voting or defending my friends. I am just looking at what every employer is looking for in an employee.... WHO THE HECK IS THIS PERSON? You can coach people on answers and may even make one candidate look smarter than others, but at the end of the day I really want to know "will they work for the country, me and my fellow citizens?" Will they work hard? Will they look for smart and hard working people to work for them?
Or is their EGO too big to allow someone else to have a good idea, even if it is from the other party?
So, keep throwing stones, calling people stupid and half the country idiots....yep ..that will unify this country. I didn't say agree on everything... I said unify... if anyone running for office thinks otherwise, I really wonder.... what kind of person would vote for a leader that is looking to separate people? Segregation is not gone... it just isn't by color anymore..it is by values and opinions.
The nation and the people deserve better.
