Two seconds of politics
I really don't like confrontation and I have avoided any political talk on my blog. Political opinions are personal, and what's most important is that we have the freedom to not only have these opinions, but also to express them and vote. I have been voting for 20 years, but no election has ever been as agonizing for me as this one. Seriously, even walking up to the booth, I still wasn't sure in which direction I was going to vote. I actually came home and cried. There is so much talk about "voting with your conscience" and "voting like a Christian", doesn't anyone else see the irony in this? Both parties have issues that are clearly "Christian" and conscience issues. It seems like everything is so black and white to everyone else, and I'm just wallowing all by myself here in this big grey area.
