I will admit that I am never on top of the news that goes on in this country on a daily basis. I have no interest in turning on the TV and watching about crime, rapes, shootings and sadness. In my book..ignorance is bliss when it comes to this stuff. But for the last 2 presidential elections I made it a point to vote intelligently and with the knowledge of what my candidate stood for. I am also a true believer in giving respect to the president of the United States. You may not like his politics…but he is still the president of this great country and deserves at least a little respect. Now to get to the point of this post…What the heck is going on out there in Washington? Does anyone really know?

I don’t find myself to believe in any 1 party. I believe what I believe and whatever party that fits into so be it. What I have a problem with is the fact that I can never get any unbiased facts! It doesn’t matter what news channel you watch or who you talk to…each of them is pushing their own agenda. Why does it have to be that way? Currently everyone is up in arms over this health care policy. As my husband puts it…it’s a 1000 page document that no one has fully read or can explain…and is trying to be passed extremely quickly. And a line my dad heard that he found funny is that Obama took longer to pick out the family dog than he did getting this bill put together…the way things are going it could be true! I need the truth people. When you watch the news you see people EXTREMELY angry about the health care policy, and you see people to love everything Obama is offering. How can it be so opposite? I guess people will answer that it has always been the foundation of our country, and that our founding fathers also stood on their own party lines. Well that may be true, but in my opinion we are falling apart, and the government is getting way to involved in our day to day lives. I am not sure this is what they had in mind when they started the country.

So I am begging my readers to explain. I know you are out there. Tell me in normal people’s terms what is going on? Do you even know? Does the Government even know? Maybe I should just stick with ignorance is bliss…this political stuff gives me a headache!
