The Election is Driving Me Crazy

Yup, I’m going there.

The election (all of it–the candidates, the coverage, the constant talk) is driving me crazy.  I think I have managed to figure out 3 main reasons why the political season drives me insane.

1) I am totally all over the board when it comes to politics.

2) I HATE being stereotypical in this kind of thing.

3) My extreme cynicism.

 

First, I am so all over the board that I fit into no categories, and I certainly don’t fit into any political party.  I am pro-life but against the death penalty.  I think the government should help out those in need, but I think it should happen at the local level.  I think all war is bad and should be avoided, but I am not opposed to intervention in certain situations.  Agh, I dunno.

Second: I refuse to be just another evangelical voting for the Republican ticket.  I also refuse to drink the kool-aid it seems like everyone under the age of 30 is drinking in regards to Obama.  AND, I hate the idea of being a single-issue voter.

Thirdly, I hate politics.  4 years ago actually wrote in myself, because Kerry struck me as a skeezy politician and Bush struck me as an idiot.  Not that I am in any way qualified (I am not even old enough, according to the Constitution), but I don’t fell any better about the candidates this time around.

Agh, who am I kidding.  I just don’t like politics.  Well, that ad the fact that I flip-flop worse than Kerry and Romney put together.  Maybe it wouldn’t be such a problem if only I could make up my mind…

  1. Hahaha…I think you are feeling the pain of most thinking people this fall. We refuse to be hypnotized by those railing on hot-button issues or mesmerized by pretty people or media spin. And -shocker- most of us realize that there really is a gray area on most issues!
