I’m a wife, mom, daughter, sister and friend who believes I’m a work in progress and I express myself best with the written word—hence my blog was born. It’s a place where I can spew my views and sentiments ‘til my heart’s content, which will probably be never; so I have a lifetime whereupon I can fill it with presumptions, thoughts, provoking statements and maybe even a bit of humor, because I always try to remember it’s the journey, not the destination.
Tomorrow is primary election day in five states, including mine, Pennsylvania.
I won’t be voting.
When I first registered to vote, I was 19 and wanted my notary license. I registered as an Independent because at that age, I wasn’t sure what I was. In 2007, I changed to Republican. But the last two primaries were already decided before they even got to Pennsylvania.
I changed back to Independent last summer.
Lo and behold, we have a primary in Pennsylvania and I can’t vote.
I’m not too bent out of shape about it. I’m not happy with the candidates—on either side.
I do think Trump is going to win my state. And while I’m not thrilled with that, I totally understand why people are supporting and voting for him.
He’s not a politician.
The American people are furious with our politicians and government in general, and want someone who isn’t the status quo or the establishment.
I just don’t know if Trump will really make a difference. And I truly believe we need someone in the White House who will respect our Constitution, curb our spending, and keep this country safe from terrorism, along with fix the illegal immigration problem.
There are many issues that need addressed, but those are my top priority.
At this point, though, I won’t hold my breath on any of it.
