I feel a little down after elections yesterday.
I think of myself as politically moderate, but I was pulling for Mitt.

I am worried about the debt our country is in, and what will happen with the hundreds of dollars garnered from each paycheck I make. Is that money being used efficiently? As someone who works in the social services industry, and serves many people with Medicaid, I think not. It is sad to say, but that is my experience.

I think that Obama is a symbol to many people of something more than just a President. He is seen as a symbol of equal rights, and progression. Some see him as a savior of sorts. I don't think he is a bad man, but I would have been happy to see him on his way out.

Now that the elections are over, there's not much to do but continue to support our President, focus on bettering myself and bettering the community I live in. Each of us has a continual influence by being who we are and speaking about the issues that are important to us.

I'm glad to be an American, and pray we will continue to be blessed with freedoms we have always enjoyed.

  1. I don't talk about it often, but we take advantage of several welfare programs while Jeff is graduate school. They are a blessing to our family and we're grateful to have the help, BUT I can wholeheartedly agree with you that what Obama has done to make government help more accessible and to be able to get more of it is absolutely horrifying. The requirements to get on it are far too lax and the ability to stay on it forever is far too easy. When we requalified last month they didn't even ask to see our most recent paychecks. It's my personal opinion that more people aren't on welfare because of lack of jobs (though I do know that's part of it), but because Obama made it so dang easy for people who don't actually need the help (or not as much help as the government is so willing to hand out)to qualify. Again, I'm grateful for the assistance right now. I'm not sure how we would make it through graduate school without it. But we could certainly make do on SIGNIFICANTLY less than we are given. And the problem is that we can't even ask for less. It's a system asking for moochers.


Don't be shy! I want to hear from you!
