A simple conversation about world events sparks some of the nastiest political debates between friends, co-workers, and recently between my wife and I last night.  She is a very passionate girl, thats why I married her.  For the most part we see eye to eye on political issues and for once we actually agree on a potential President. 

She was the one who turned me to Senator Obama and I couldn’t be more grateful for that.  I chose not to vote in the last Presidential election after I watched an episode of South Park.  In this episode the boys were trying to decide which new school mascot to vote for: A turd sandwich or a giant dusche bag. 

And thats how I felt about our last presidential election.  No matter who I went and voted for it was between a giant dusche bag and poop sandwich.  I love south park, sometimes they help me see the big picture.  Our president has faced more obstacles and trials than any other president before him.   I can’t blame him for the job that he has done because I believe he is doing his best, but I do blame him for running in the first place. 

As Americans we need to be involved in politics before the primary and presidential elections.  Too many people wait until the Party nominations are made to select their candidate and in the last election that left us choosing between poop and a dusche.

Everyone has values and ethics that change from year to year.  Maybe they don’t change, but they evolve and are refined over time.  Every election take a look at what you believe and then start looking for your candidate.  Don’t read someone’s platform and say “yes, thats what I think too” or that candidate will lead you off a cliff like a lost sheep.
