Already, social media is BLOWING UP with information and opinions regarding the 2012 Presidential Election.
I get it. It's a BIG DEAL. And we should all be passionate about what we believe and stand for!
However, the thing that's bugging me right now is how we are all so busy trying to be RIGHT, that I think we're forgetting what's important.
Yes, some of us are Democrats. And some of us are Republicans. And whatever else.
But we are all Americans.
we are one nation, under God.
And I'm certainly no expert. But I think if we would all come together and stop trying to be so right all the time, we might get somewhere! We need to stop letting the party line separate us!
On Sunday, my pastor mentioned that he's a "Republicrat." And I liked that. I like to think of myself the same way.
Yes, I lean strongly toward the Republican side of things. But there are some areas in which I agree more with Democrats. I think the best way to vote is to strongly go with what you think is best for our nation. Not strictly with what your party believes.
Those are my two cents, and I feel very passionately about it!
As a funny side story, last year on election day, everyone on Facebook was arguing and complaining and being very negative all around. I found myself in a bad mood because of it.
So I promised myself I would not log on to Facebook on election day next year.
Well, I recently realized I didn't know the exact date of election day, 2012. So I looked it up.
Turns out, this year is going to be just like the year I was born:
This year, just like 1984, my birthday happens to fall on the first Tuesday of November. During a presidential election, no less!
And everybody knows your birthday is the most fun Facebook day of the year!
So anyway, in some crazy oxymoron sort of phenomenon, November 6 will the best and worst Facebook day of the year for me. What are the odds? And what a dilemma! ;-)
