Don't Drink The Kool-aid

This blog has never been about politics...and I don't want it be...and this post is not about politics, it's about being an American.  If you don't love this country, one's got a gun to your head and you can quit reading right now, but if you do love on. 

I am an American. And proud of it. If you know me you know that I am conservative, but first and foremost I care about the character of the person and if he or she will serve our cities, our states, and our country with honor and integrity. That being considered, I vote for the person not the party.  

It shouldn't matter if we are Democrats or Republicans; what should matter most is that we are Americans and we should be as accepting and supportive of one another as if we were all one big, dysfunctional family. A family with a few crazies, some weird uncles, an odd-ball cousin or two, and with some eccentric, old aunts thrown in. After all, those of us who were fortunate enough to have been born in this great county are really just lucky sperm. Like trust fund babies or the Kardashian kids.

Our president should be a man that we are proud of and that we respect. He needs to be a man that we can trust; a man who loves America as much as we do; someone who will lay down his life to protect this country, just as our troops do to protect our freedom.
     We must know that that person, our president, has no agenda other than to uphold our constitution. That God and country are more important than late night television interviews. That rather than solicit out-of-touch-with-reality-Hollywood, for campaign money, we want our commander in chief to be a person who will champion small businesses and individuals for making their own money.  

That's the way it should be and that's the touchy-feely side of me saying that. But here's the way it is and it's really chapping my ass.
     I am so aggrieved that our mainstream media has turned our politicians into desperate puppets who are willing to disgrace themselves and our country with their crusade of lies and cover-ups, all for the despicable hope of winning an election. The media, who has an obligation to protect our truth has itself become an enemy and a threat that divides us.
     What should be a bi-partisan commitment for unity has been turned into a game of "gotcha," with the mentality of a preschool bully. In short, our media has become as criminal and corrupt as our politicians!!!!

No, this isn't about politics, it's about our god given right to be heard above the propaganda that we are bombarded with by biased, lying people who will say anything to get their man elected.
     It's about the lack of accountability of our media and our government. Why is it always someone else's fault?  And why do those who have the power to throw one of our own under the bus not have the balls to at least own up to it? They are, after all untouchable. Own it. What could possibly happen?

It's about the integrity of the man we will elect to represent us, all of us, whether we are liberals or conservatives.
     We need to know that he will not be self-serving, but be in service to our citizens. Rich or poor, black or white, man or woman...IT DOESN'T MATTER! We are are all equals and we are AMERICANS!!!!  The person who holds our highest office must not bow down to the lunatics who want to kill us! As a citizen of this great country we need to know that he has the backbone to stand up to them and that he won't dishonor himself or us with deception and degradation.

As Americans we should proudly support our troops and salute our flag. That's not a political stand. It's a stand that we should take because we should not take our freedom for granted, nor should we want to grant freedom to those cowards who despise our democracy and who prove it over and over again with their terrorist connections.
     Radical anti-American extremists, WHO WANT US DEAD should never, NEVER be indulged, nor warrant one iota of our sympathy! They will strap bombs to the backs of their own babies to decimate innocent people and they will do it so they can give glory to a sick god.

As AMERICANS we must take a stand and vote for a leader who will stand up for AMERICA.

Name your poison, but don't drink the Kool-aid that's being passed around.



  1. Let's hope the right people get out and vote this time, too!

  2. Great writing Tammi. I agree there is to much back stabbing in this campaign. You can't trust anyone.
    It will be interesting come tuesday since so many will not be able to vote because of Storm Sandy.
