Apathy or just plain tired?

With November just around the corner and yet another election under way, I can’t help but to find myself strangely apathetic towards the whole deal this time around.  It’s really not like me to be so disinterested during an election cycle but the fact of the matter is that I don’t particularly like my choices
 
In the Texas Governor’s race, I have either Rick Perry or Bill White to choose from.  Neither is a viable choice in my book so needless to say I will most likely vote 3rd party, much to my husband’s angst.  I realize that a vote for third party might be a vote for Bill White but to be honest with you, I see very little difference between Governor Good Hair and Mayor Monkey Face, except for the hair and face.  Both are ineffectual and neither have the people of Texas’ best interests at heart.

My district is a solid conservative district and I really have no problems with my elected officials.  It’s unfortunate, however, I have no control over how people in other districts vote.  All I can really do is sit and wait and hope that the people in Sheila Jackson Lee’s district wake up and smell the coffee and vote her butt right out of office.  Of course, that is about as likely as the possibility that she would refuse a photo op.
I think that my biggest problem is that I really do not see any difference in the two parties which represent the status quo.  Both parties are corrupt and both parties are hungry for power.  That is power over you and me.  The only difference between the two is that one wants to control our daily lives by forcing us to drive cars they think we should drive, and force us to buy government healthcare, the other party wants to make our moral choices for us.  Neither scenario is acceptable to me.

I can only hope that at some point, these grass roots movements will take hold and people will wake up and realize that they are simply voting away our freedoms, our individual liberties, our lifeblood simply by sticking to the status quo.  My advice?  Fire them all……..

Until next time.
