It’s amazing how much attention you get when you reveal your love for change and hope has died in the current political climate. I am so angry right now that I am seriously considering voting McCain and Palin come November.
I certainly understand it is the nature of the political beasts to fight over the largest prize in the free-world. Yet something makes me pause when those so loyal to the ideas of hope and change wield their sharp and bloody swords and take aim at a candidate.
Yes, this has everything to do with Sarah Palin. While I thought it a brilliant stroke of genius by the McCain camp to vett and ultimately choose a woman as a veep, I was prepared for the slaughter once the announcement had been made.
I just didn’t think it would be the kind of brutal hunt and slaying that the liberals have managed to push while they hold their signs of hope and change. Frothing at the mouth and uttering epithets tend to lose you credibility in an argument.
It wasn’t just the child controversy plaguing Ms. Palin, but the blatant disregard of delegates as they were attacked while walking to the RNC. Angry protesters pushed men and women from Connecticut to the ground as they tried to exit their bus. The linked article above also mentions other issues popping up at the RNC.
What ridiculous and inexcusable behavior. I am actually embarrassed to associate myself with this camp right now. Once my temper cools, and I am soothed by the bard with the silver tongue, perhaps I will once again stand in Obama’s shadow and pull that lever.
Yet, right now the veil is gone. The sweet words and melodies that echoed hope, change and dreams once remembered in Martin Luther King speeches and John F. Kennedy rallies, are washed away by the injustices of the people who hold bloody Democratic banners in the call for political annihilation.
The people of this country have every right to be angry with how they’ve been treated by the current administration, of course. I feel your pain. Take your anger to the voting booth and vote for the person who best serves your ideals, but leave the childish and unforgivable bickering and bullying out of the equation.
