I believe that I have the right to support for President whomever I wish.  I believe that YOU have the right to support for President whomever YOU wish.  I believe that I have the right to say so on my blog or in person.  I believe that YOU have the right to say so on YOUR blog or in person.

I don't think I have the right to tell you that you are wrong.  I don't believe that you have the right to tell me that I am wrong.  We have the feelings we do for various reasons.  My reasons are not wrong and your reasons are not wrong.  This is the United States of America where both you and I are FREE to say what we want (within reason--no shouting "Fire" in a crowded theater unless there really is a fire.)  And we are FREE to worship the way we please--the government does not have a state-sponsored church we have to attend.  And we are FREE to vote from our heart. Whoever wins this election will be my President and I will have respect for him.

My husband's cousin, Liz, took a video of Sarah Palin at a rally and how she handled a heckler. Liz posted this to You Tube.  It got picked up on the Drudge Report and bodabing bodaboom over 41,000 people have seen it.  Unfortunately, other people claimed it was their video and actually made money off of it.  Now tell that fair or honest????

It doesn't matter who we vote for. It only matters that we get out there and vote. I'll be casting my ballot for a third party candidate because I don't trust one and the other scares the hell out of me. I feel very sorry that so many won't cast a ballot at all. They cannot complain when the guy they liked better doesn't win. Even not choosing is choosing.

You are so right. I've vote for 3rd party candidates before knowing they didn't have a chance to win. I understand your feelings.

The candidate I was hoping to be the Republican running was Mike Huckabee. I voted for him on the Oregon primary even though by then it was over for him.
