As the Iowa caucus approaches, I decided to spend some time today researching the presidential candidates and how they stand on the core issues. I’ve never been one to keep up on politics. It never appealed to me. And all of the bashing makes me want to do the skedaddle. But considering this election will probably turn out to be one of the most exciting of my lifetime, I figured I’d better start doing my homework.
I’ve mentioned before that I’m a registered Republican mainly because I’m fiscally conservative, but on social issues, I’m pretty liberal. A couple months ago, I took this online quiz that paired me up with Giuliani. My pairing score with Giuliani was pretty low which goes to show how scattered I am when it comes to how I think politically. For starters, I am PRO-CHOICE. I don’t give a hootenanny what the Catholic church thinks. The fact that these high and mighty MEN are going to decide what a woman does to her own body makes me want to throw up. If you’re going to force a teenager into unwanted pregnancy, then you try taking care of a baby on minimum wage and no family support! Totally ridiculous.
On immigration, I read today that Giuliani thinks we should build a technological fence to keep out illegal immigrants. OMIGOD! He lost my vote right there. What an idiot. I’ll be honest, I still have more research to do but this country is what it is today because of immigrants. Lots of whom were/are here illegally!!! Immigrants are our parents, our colleagues, our bosses. They farm our land, they nurture our children. WTF, people. WTF?!?!
On a final note before bedtime, I am a big Hillary fan. Always have been, always will. She will most likely get my vote. She has the most experience, being born and bred and wed for this job. And two presidents for the price of one. You can’t beat that! But seriously, when saxaphone-playing Billy was in the Oval Office who do you really think was running the show? Come on, people. While Bill was getting his job blown (you know what I’m talking about), Hillary was getting the job done. Enough said. I’m not going to play the first woman president card. Hands down, she is the most experienced and most qualified.
