High Anxiety

WARNING: Political blather ahead

A long time ago, I told myself that I would not make this blog political or religious. It was supposed to be about my life and my interests. Specifically books. But I have to admit that I am feeling a lot of anxiety right now. I guess I never believed that many of my fellow women would be gullible enough to fall for McCain's Palin card. Do I support women running for higher political office? Of course I do! But not THIS woman. I would even have preferred Kay Bailey Hutchison who I can't stand. And I have been dismayed by how many people are falling for McCain in general. Is he a good decent experiences man who served his country well? Of course he is! But we have the opportunity to get a true visionary in office. Someone we can actually believe in!!!

I ran across this article today and thought I would share it with you. It is called "This is Your Nation on White Privilege" by Tim Wise and it is really thought-provoking. Check it out here:

It expresses some of my frustrations about this election. This is such an important time in American history. The next President will choose three Supreme Court justices which will affect us all. We cannot sit idly by on this one and let other people choose for us. It's time to take action...

As we get closer to election day, I am more and more terrified for the future of our country. We are in deep trouble if McCain/Palin win.

It is nerve wracking. I hope it turns out for the best, I really do. Thank you for the link.
