I hate politics!

Let me start by saying I am a patriotic American and very proud of and thankful for the country we live in and the democracy we have.

However. I absolutely abhor every four years when we must vote for a new president. I'm so sick of the pundits and the opinions and the bashing.

I grew up with do-or-die Democrats for parents. I go to a church where most of the people that attend there boast of being Republican (don't get me started on the mixing of religion and politics!) Being a rebel by nature, I consider myself to be middle-of-the-road. Both sides have issues I like and issues I don't like.

I can't stand people who think it's their way or the highway. I can't stand when people try to force their beliefs on me. I can't stand people telling me how to vote. I don't like when some people vote for a party just because of one issue.

I have known since last fall which candidate I will vote for in the upcoming November election, but I will remain silent on that. #1 - I don't want any debates and people trying to convince me to switch to their side; #2 - It's nobody's business!

Thank you, dear blogger readers, for letting me vent (as I climb down from my soapbox!)
