The closer we get to the upcoming election, the more fearful I become of our future. I’ve been lashing out at Leslie’s Little Soap Box, but I know that no one reads that blog, so unfortunately my ranting there go unnoticed. It’s really too, little too late. I just started actively using my Facebook account, but again it’s too little too late. Most of my “friends” there are very liberal and have already made their minds up.
I am so afraid for the future of this country, so many people want the government to take care of them, they have become lazy and are no longer willing to work for or even defend the American way. I’ve been told that I lack compassion, that I don’t understand people having hard times and sometimes needing a hand up. I nipped that conversation in the bud.
I want change too, but not what is being proposed. I want less government, less taxes and more personal freedoms. The path I see this country heading is the same route Europe took years ago. I find myself leaning towards the Libertarian Party, but it’s going to take time for them to really catch on. Perhaps the next four years will help push them to the forefront.
I really know nothing about being a political activist, but I think it’s time to learn something new.
