A Rant on the Election

Everyone else has gotten their rants out about the election, and I've stayed quite because I didn't want to become one of those people who annoy me and go on and on about it on Facebook. But I don't care anymore, and letting it out on blogger instead of Facebook is a little better right?

So I'm just going to come out and say it, YES, I'm voting for Romney. I think that he has what it takes to get this country back on it's feet and thriving again. That is something that is very important to me. I think that Romney has the experience necessary in the business world to grow the economy. People say that Obama hasn't had enough time to fix what Bush did. That would be great if the Debt was slightly less than or equal to what it was when he took office, however, it's more and therefore I believe it's someone else's turn.

However, the main point of this post is not to get you to vote for Romney, or to make you think that what I believe is right, and that what you may believe is wrong. The main point of this post is about something that I've been seeing way to much of, and to be honest I feel like I expected more out of the American people by now.

I've seen way too many people (including my own family members) basically say that they're not voting for Romney because he is Mormon. Does anyone remember when people didn't want JFK to take office because he was Catholic? And then he got killed! Is the same thing going to happen again because Romney is Mormon? If someone said that they weren't going to vote for Obama because he is black, people would be jumping all over them, calling them a racist, and a thousand other things. So why is it OK to say your not going to vote for someone because of their religious view? That's just something for you to think about. Make your vote based on politics. Not skin color, not religion. Forget everything about the candidates personally, and just make the choice based on who you think will be the best provider for our nation over the next 4 years.

That is all, and thanks for reading this if you did, and if you didn't well then you can't even see this line right not anyways.

UPDATE: JFK was not shot because he was Catholic, hower until today that's what I thought cause that's what my crazy grandma told me when I was younger and believed it ever since... Thanks to my friend Malissa I decided I should probably find out why it happened, and while there are many differing reasons online, I don't think religion was one of them, so that was a bad comparison, my bad!

  1. I think ranting on blogger is much better than facebook. I always figure, the people that actually read my blog have the time/interest to know lots of details about my life and opinions. Also, I do think it's lame that people are so freaked out Romney is Mormon. I know that yes, we are kind of weird in some of our beliefs, but it never affected his performance as a high power executive or governer. People are weird.

  2. I feel like the point you make about people not voting for JFK because he was Catholic and then pointing out that he was killed is kind of jumping to conclusions.
    I agree with you that people shouldn't not vote for Romney solely because he's Mormon and they think Mormons are weird. People should vote for him because he is a good leader, or at least they should understand what the Mormon religion is about before they make their judgments. But, religion, at least the Mormon religion, does effect your lifestyle and actions more than being black effects your lifestyle and actions. Or at least it should. So I would hope people consider religion more strongly than they consider the color of the skin. Whether that's bad or not to judge someone because of their religion in this situation, I don't know. But I don't think it's so much as judging Romney if you know what Mormonism is about but don't agree with it and therefore don't vote for Romney as it is making an educated choice.
