My biggest guilty pleasure is Fox News. I'm a news junky, I just can't get enough. Its the only thing I put on T.V. when I actually get the remote, which isn't very often. Even when I get in the car I turn it to Fox News Radio. I am driving my family crazy. This has been going on for at least a year already.
Anyway, as I was listening to it this morning I was getting so frustrated and spun up about the upcoming election. I won't discuss who I think would do a better job because I know I'll offend half of my blog readers. I feel very strongly about how I will vote and I usually can see both sides of a story but not this time.
I am so frustrated by the politicians and news media stereotyping and categorizing each racial group and statuses like working class, blue collar workers, single mothers, evangelicals, catholic, etc... When you really think about who is keeping this country divided? Who thinks they know how everyone will vote? I know that when I think of America I do not stereotype or categorize people into groups.
I can't believe that we believe everything these politicians say. Please don't just vote by what they say in their speeches, we all know its fluff. Research their backgrounds, experience and take a close look at the decisions they made earlier in their lives. Take a look at what they were doing before the media was following them around.
