I'm worried that 6 months of a learning curve of a brand new Pres is not going to help any momentum that is happening. My husband is getting lots of calls from recruiters (software industry). Our experience: recruiters calling = economy rising..
yes, yes. I've been driven to drink! Even posted political views on Facebook to my family and friends. OIY! Let the insanity cease! But then I think about future generations and I keep on writing. I want to write about fun stuff!
My answers will show you why I'm an Independent. I just finished making a Pros and Cons list to help solidify my decision. I'm worried about: * Social Security * Middle Class * Illegal Aliens * More Wars * The Right to Bear Arms * Women's Rights * The Deficit * Health Care Can you guess who I'm voting for?
The most important thing to me is, and always has been, since we are supposed to be a God-fearing nation....having a President ruling over our country who believes in God and who turns to God with all his decision making.
An aside: That so many people accept presidents as rulers is, in my view, a problem. They aren't. They are executive officers whose duty is to do the bidding of the congress and to defend the US Constitution. IOW, hired help, not rulers.
Brinafr3sh, I agree. However, unfortunate and as puzzling as it may seem, in my view, modern day "Christ followers" or "Christians" revert to the old Testament in their view or morals and spend little time analyzing how Christ would actually vote.
That people wake up and realize that they are responsible for their own life, not the president or the government. It doesn't matter who is in office. What matters is what people do with their time on the planet. Presidents come and go. If we want a better life we have to create it ourselves.
Good point JT, but in life everyone has to make adjustments. Even a millionaire! The best course of action is to re-train for careers that are in demand or start a new business. Its about working smart and putting oneself in a favorable position.
Then it comes down to FAITH. If people can prosper during the great depression, this is nothing. It may mean making new contacts with investors. In reality, if you know where to look, people are still earning millions and billions every year.
Sri T and JThomp42, your dialog led this question to pop up in my head: When did we, in America, stop believing that the government is US? ooh, ooh, I'm going to post that question now. Let's see what happens
1. The Survival of our Planet - the ocean, the mountains, us - which party will "buck up" and be brave enough to face issues of global climate change and our responsibility to alleviate its effects. 2. The Improvement of Society - the issue of homelessness, the disparity of opportunity and growing gap between rich and poor; 3. Our Approach to War - whether we come from an insecure place of "we'll show them" or a place of thoughtful, calm strength - (the latter point, of course, relating to pont 1: the survival of our planet.)
