Presidential Debates, Part II

Yes, I have a Twitter account... No, I don't understand it much. But tonight I was on-line during the third debate between Obama and Romney and really enjoyed watching the comments go up my screen. Even had a few responses back from those I commented on... people who are actually 'famous' by some standard. ;)

From my point of view... Romney seemed confident in what he was saying, he knew what to say without feeling too pressured. Although he did stutter a bit but they both did that and in some cases simply because there wasn't enough time to say ten minutes worth of words into a two minute time frame. 

Obama seemed angry just like he has his entire presidency and even before being crowned. His advisers may have told him to look at Romney, unlike the first debate, but instead he drilled his eye knives into his skull. Anyone who is angry and president cannot be fully trusted not to fly off the handle and send us into even worse territory than we are today.

Presidential Debates

One more debate to watch and then I can take another deep breath. I know who I'm voting for... but I gotta say these debates really give the public a look inside the way the candidates react to each other, to the questions, and to emotions in general.

I will never be a politician nor have I ever thought of it as a career... never mind career... a life choice. To be a politician means you must set your jaw and bull your way forward for your party's agenda no matter your own beliefs.

It is a strong belief of mine that the political world is why our lives are so full of mistrust of other people. I believe it's one of the reasons Republicans and Democrats are so often on the exact opposite side of so many different issues. Makes me wonder if we will ever... ever... have a president who doesn't have an R or a D after his or her name.

Perhaps it is the pessimist in me but it seems they want us divided... they want the biggest and loudest activist of every issue from every possible side to stomp their feet, scream their opinions, and attack the opposition. After all, if we all get along and all believe the same things... think of how quickly they would be out of a job!

On the other hand, I would not want to live in any country where every person thinks the same thing or believes the same thing... that would be a bizarre, empty headed reality that would kill every bit of imagination any human can have.

But when each side points at the other and yells 'it's because of you' it gets a little old. We are not all the extreme of each side... those individuals along with their political kings and queens love to keep us at each others throats because their careers... their political life choice depends on our disagreements.
May we each take the moment necessary out of this day and any day we feel the need to remember those who have gone before us in defense of our freedoms. Without them... we would not be "here"... we would be in chains. ~Bug~
