Another not so super Tuesday!

It is another day that will be filled with the depressing news of who will most likely be our next president. I have been listening to a conservative talk show host... named Mark Levin. He is very smart and has it all right... but can be very rude.. which I actually find quite entertaining and funny. I am not sure why anyone would call his show because he flat our will tell you that you are a dope and need to get off the phone.... I know that I am not hip at all when I look forward to listening to talk radio.... sad but true. I actually download his podcasts on my phone and listen to them later in the day. Gone are the days of rocking out to Bon Jovi.. now I just listen to a man rant and rave about the election. With all of my listening, I am beginning to realize that many do not know what conservatism is all about and the lines are being blurred. We have become so dependent upon our government to bail us out of everything. We want entitlements. We want everything to be fair and equal. Do people really think that these politicians can help fix healthcare, schools, immigration, etc....... Haven't they already done enough damage?
The whole "end tax cuts for the rich' cracks me up to..... Did you know that 86% of all federal taxes are paid by the top 25% of income earners. (from latest tax year from IRS) and the top 50% pay 97%of all income taxes...... The wealthy are paying the bulk of it... Don't they deserve a break? But everyone says it is not fair... I agree that the middle class struggles but not because of the rich. Thomas Jefferson said this in 1816, "To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it."
I do not like Hillary Clinton one bit and this fascination with Obama creeps me out a bit. It is like people think he is GOD and will come and magically fix everything. I don't trust him and as to the left as Hillary is, he is even further left than her. Okay... enough ranting. I am thankful that whatever happens and whoever gets to the White House.... my trust and hope is in the Lord! not man, (or woman.)

Wow Kristy, you now a lot about politics! I am impressed. I'm still learning about it all from my husband! I agree with you about Hillary and Obama! America is blind right now and soon they will see that these two are not miracle workers! We know who the true mircale worker who brings about change is!!!
