Politically speaking... If I am to be honest, I want someone in office who will clean up the POOP we Americans have found ourselves in! Perhaps it is not their own POOP by their making, but I hope by electing the right person, that they will fix what ever is wrong with our America.
Perhaps one scoop at a time, I honestly don't know how this will work.
Like many American's, I am one Boomer who has been glued to the news! I attempt to understand all the candidates views and agendas, which can be like murky water at best. By taking in all that they say, I hope when the time comes I will make a wise, and informed decision.
While I can not sit down for tea with any one of these candidates and get to know them on a personal level, I have their words across the air waves to help me understand their plans for our America. I then pray I will be able to draw my personal conclusions and vote to the best of my ability!
So how do I pick a candidate? Yes I hear their words...but how do I know that what they are saying is for real or not just a bunch of POOP?
My husband and I differ in our thoughts concerning what we are looking for in a President. We have sat and discussed our differences many a nights. He like many... is sick and tired! He is ready for a BIG game changer! He wants someone who will fight! He wants the candidate with the MEGA POOPER SCOOPER!
I on the other hand am looking for someone with a calm, sound, consistent demeanor, with a long track record. Perhaps a little scooper, but one that is sturdy and will do the job just as well!
Truthfully...how do we as Americans judge a candidate?
In my opinion, I look at the candidates life, by observing their past, and their present. Being articulate is great, but if they have a shaky track record, then how do I trust them with my future? Have they indeed ever taken the POOPER SCOOPER out of the box?
Do they have a track record for cleaning up their own POOP and yes even the POOP of others? Are they honest about their POOP?
"Yes it was my POOP and I will gladly clean it up!"
It is not a pleasant job, but if one is not willing to get down in the trenches then what good are they?
For me I still believe that God is in control and will place the King in high places. There are reasons beyond my understanding why some advance and some appear to fall behind. I just have to trust and most of all VOTE with every moral fiber in me for all the right reasons.
As a Boomer, a Mother, a Grandmother, believe me when I say, I have changed a few diapers and picked up mounds of POOP in my time! I also know I must continue to clear my mind in order to make a sound decision! A decision NOT based on emotions, but of a sound and smart thinking mind!
Do not discount us...we know POOP when we see it!
This race is one that will definitely go down in the history books. I will close for now wishing you a wonderful day, filled with good thoughts. It was not my intention to talk about Poop, but ya know...Someone had to do it!
Smiles and hugs!
