I care greatly about the future of our world and our nation, in that order. The out come of this years election (selection? Remember Florida, then Ohio, then remember the Alamo!) will determine a lot about the future of both. I am non partisan, belonging to no “party.” Last week I watched the Democratic extravaganza in Denver. Now it is the Republicans turn… Sorry but this Republican pitch isn’t flying with me. To get George Bush relected (reselected?) the R party brainwashed America, terrorizing us, with repeated imagery of the demolished world trade towers. Now it is Old Glory. Over and over the US flag, always on the big sceen in the background, like a drone. I think our flag is beautiful, but in the last 20 years I have watched it, like our Constitution, become trampled and tattered, and shamefully so, by the very ones trusted to keep them pristine. This Republican convention is pretty shallow in content and substance so far. It looks like what the message is, is that if you are not part of the small segment of ultra, military minded, evangelical right, then you are not a patriot. I say hogwash! I hope Ron Paul’s name is on the ballot! I might even vote for Jesse Ventura. Or possibly Ace Ventura. 😉
I don’t want to get too involved because personally I am in favor of God’s Kingdom on Earth being established more thanÂ I am interested in casting a vote for the lesser of two politicians, who ultimately share the same foreign policy, and bicker fruitlessly about the real issues that hit home, the domestic solutions that we desperately need. These real, at home issues do affect me and my loved ones much more than some protester burning the flag in some oilfield on the other side of the globe, that I will likely never even visit or see in my lifetime!
I do find it very interesting that the Democrats got the biggest stadium in Colorado, Invesco Field, seating 76,000 and that it was filled to the brim with the standing space on the field it was at 90,000+ and the Fire Marshall closed the gates to some 20,000 ticket holders outside! While the Republicans have the Excell Energy (ironic) Center in Minnesota, seating 18,000 and it looks like many of the seats are vacant. Hmmm.
