Here we are in another campaign year and being bombarded with political smear commercials on every channel we watch. I personally do not like either candidate. To me politicans are like used car salesmen. They are untrustworhy and will say anything to get you to buy what they are selling. Even the commentators on the campagin aggravate me. It's just a bunch of people overtalking each other and not saying much of anything that is of importance. Quite frankly, I would rather vote for an average joe worker. At least that person would know first hand the issues we middle class people are facing. The prices of the basic necessities like food, clothing, and utilities are going up. Everything is going up except our raises. There is no cost of living ratio anymore when it comes to our jobs and their salaries. I hear Romney and Obama commericals just basically slamming each other. I hear them saying we need to fix this and we need to fix that. Well, pardon my french, but no crap we need to fix it. What I don't hear is how. Tell me your plan for fixing the problems this country is facing. Give me a detailed account of how you are going to solve the issues. People are losing their homes, their jobs, and cashing out their retirement savings just to make it by. Yet at these political dinners they are charging $50, 000 a plate. $50,000!!!! For what? For more useless commercials? It is sickening. Why not put that money to good use. Put that money back into the economy. I mean most people don't even make that kind of money in a year but yet they are charging that price per plate.
It scares me actually. I am scared for the future of my husband and I. At this rate we will never get to retire and will have to work and scrape by until the day we die. I am scared for my kids. How are they going to make it out there? I mean the first thing you tell them is to go to college to get an education and degree for that great job that pays well. That isn't even true anymore. College graduates are coming out into this world and end up working at McDonalds because they can't find a job. And now they are stuck with the student loans. So what do I tell my kids now? Don't go to college because at this point in time it isn't worth it? Every generation is suppose to do a little better than the last one. That's not the way anymore. We are worse off then our former generations. Why is that? Is it all the politicians" fault for doing things that got us into this mess? I would say yes, mostly it is. Or is it that our work ethic has become lazy? I don't know. All I know is that I want my boys to be able to aquire some type of skill that would land them a decent job. If it's not college then atleast a trade school.
I am done with the political madness. I am just not voting. LIke I said I don't trust either of them. I just hope whoever wins opens their eyes and see what's really going on. I hope they can come up with something to start fixing the issues. Not just for our sake, but mostly for the sake of our childrens' future.
