I see many of my blogger friends are ecstatic, elated, happy, relieved, etc....to use a few terms I've read. I am not.
I am a Christian, a Republican and a lifetime NRA member. I am downhearted. I believe we as a country are giving up our individual rights for socialism. I do not think that is best for our country. We just wrote a blank check to the government for health care reform. Do you really believe that putting healthcare in the hands of the government is a prudent thing to do? I predict escalating debt for our country. I am saddened that so many people can justify killing unborn children under the name "woman's health". I am frightened by a government that wants to take individual rights away from it's people.
I am also mildly irritated that the news media was calling the race prior to many Alaskans getting a chance to vote. I know we only have THREE electoral votes, but it does feel like our votes don't count.
I'm still your blogger friend. I can remove politics from my friendships, but I can't join in your enthusiasm for the way our country is moving. And it makes me feel dishonest not to mention my beliefs.
Back to some art this weekend I hope! I have been absent for some time due to internet issues and high-volume work.
